Our award winning marching bands, jazz bands, and concert bands are built from musical skills from the youngest age students.
Students in the early grades are introduced to musical terms and instruments through scheduled classes.
Students start school sponsored instrument lessons in fifth grade. We are proud of our 5th-6th grade band, our 7th-8th grade band and our 9th-12th grade band.
We offer marching band for grades 7 and 8 with our 9-12 marching band performing at home football games and competing all-over the state. The high school marching band will be competing in the National Championships of Band held in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Our jazz bands are so successful, both Jazz One and Jazz Two often place in the state competition.
Our entire musical certified staff work to promote drama, music, and band within the district.
