    • Mitchell- Praise for how well things have gone this year with all the changes for COVID.  Coming up is district music contest, it is limited to just individuals and small ensembles. It is in Central City and parents can attend to watch.  Scheduled times will be sent out as soon as they are received.

The show for next year is called The Summit and planning has started to happen.  Band Trip proposed for 2022-(5 days right after the end of the school year for $800 – $900) start thinking about summer jobs to help your students raise money.  
    • Big Band Dance-approved up to 200 people, and will be live streaming if you can’t attend.  A group of students were selected to play at the state capitol and they have been practicing hard and sounding good.  The coaching and instruction for that came from an outside source and the money ($1100) to pay was voted on by band parents and approved. 
    • Mitchell- Thanks to all outgoing volunteers for their service and help this year it was greatly appreciated.
