Good Afternoon!

We have had a wonderful year with your students, and we thank you for all the support you have showed our Marvin Ridge Band Program! In our final newsletter of the year, you can find reminders about summer instrument instructions, marching band deadline reminders, and an end of year message from the band directors. Since our school owned inventory is being picked up for maintenance, will be wrapping up our final days with some non-playing activities. 

Students will not need instruments at school this week! Tuesday is an A Day!
