How exciting! Our 2018 Aztec Marching Band show is titled “A Thousand Cranes” with music feature from a collection of Japanese pieces. View the show video theme by clicking here.
1000 Cranes are a symbol of peace, health, prosperity and mythical wisdom. It is asserted that everyone has his own hopes and wishes. According to Japanese tradition, 1000 Paper Cranes (also referred to as Senbazuru) can help people to cherish their wishes and make them become true.
A person who folds 1000 Origami Cranes will be granted a chance to make one significant wish.
The Band Camp snack shelves are a little bare. The students work very long hours during band camp, a snack or two between meals and during breaks are great pick-me-ups to keep them going. The oops & ouch drawers (we know those moments happen) need some replenishment too.
We are accepting donations during each of the summer rehearsals. They can be placed in the band room. Also Kathy Askins is accepting donations at her home – contact her at email@example.com to make the arrangements.
and complete a sports physical with their doctor or other type of “minute clinic” and submit by May 16. For returning members, you have to do a new physical every school year. This information will also be used for Athletics if you participate in a school sport. Please direct all physical/Register My Athlete questions to our school activities secretary Mary Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you!
