WONDERFUL EVENING!

Fantastic job to our Concert Green/Silver, Concert White, Concert Winds, and Wind Symphony who put on phenomenal performances this past Tuesday night.  It was an enjoyable evening showcasing the talent of our student musicians.  Thank you for allowing us to see the efforts of your hard work of the school year thus far.  You were all incredible!

MEMORY BOOK DISTRIBUTION

If you did not pick up your memory book this past week and you did not make a special pickup plan with Lisa Oldham, books will be distributed by Directors in class (for those in Concert Band) and by Shannon Wielinga (for those in Color Guard). Special thanks to Nancy Riley & Gina Marshall for their amazing work putting these books together! If you have any questions, please email VP-Marketing@masonbandboosters.com.

POINSETTIA SALE  - THANK YOU!

The Mason Bands hosted another successful fundraiser to help support all students in all Mason Bands from 6th to 12th!  The rainy December evening did not stop the laughs and support from all our generous volunteers.  Thank you to our winter flower volunteers:  Sydney Anthos, Micki Gonzalez, Tonya Burkardt, and Mansi Srivastava. Special thanks to Ellen Foss & Jennifer Schwartzkopf for their flawless coordination!
