Congratulations to LEISD Bands!

Congratulations to all LEISD Bands for a tremendous UIL season! The Wind Ensemble's stage performance was one I'll never forget, receiving straight 1's on stage. The Symphonic Winds and both Lakeside Middle School Bands received a Sweepstakes Award for their performances. Congratulations to these amazing student performers and their directors; Mr. LeAndre Benton, Mr. Matt Neal, Mr. Donald Kitchens, Mrs. Whitney Katz, and Ms. Robyn Blanchard. This has been one of the strongest showings at UIL Concert and Sight-Reading evaluation in LEISD history!
