The final post on the Branson 2012 blog is up! Check it out for some thank-yous and a few extra pictures. :)

Please stay tuned to the band calendar (at right) for upcoming events... it may feel like the school year is winding down, but we still have a lot going on! To those involved in Fox Valley, the festival is taking place this upcoming Sunday and Monday (the 29th and 30th). All band members have our spring concert on Thursday, May 10th, and all current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will be performing at MCHS Graduation on Sunday, May 20th. ALL students will also be marching in Minooka's Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 28th. And for anyone participating in marching band for the 2012-2013 school year, our kick-off night is Tuesday, May 29th.

Let's have a great last month of school!
