Band Lessons

Began this week.  All students have a homework assignment that will be graded at next week’s lesson.  You should hear your student practicing at home J.  If students have a question about their assignment, or would like some extra help, please have them see Ms. Kluga.

Homecoming Thanks!

Thank you so much for your help in making Friday Night’s Homecoming BBQ a success !  Whether you donated food, supplies, or your time, the students and Ms. Kluga truly appreciate your support.  Special thanks to Mrs. Serafin for organizing our parent volunteers, the Statler family for supplying the grill, and Mr. Statler and Mr. Oteiza for their grilling skills!


With 70 band members attending, we were a musical force in the stands.  And, alongside our YHS Cheerleaders and the student fan section “The Crop,” we all worked together to cheer on our Huskers to an exciting victory over the Somers Tuskers.  What a wonderful opportunity for all YHS band members 9-12 to have fun together and support our school community.  Thank you again for making this evening possible; it’s these kinds of events that stick in student’s minds and help build a strong and unified band program!  Ms. Kluga’s attached a few pictures of our evening for you to enjoy.
