The band just completed a very successful two week marching band camp and is preparing audition tapes for its upcoming trip to Colorado in the spring of 2011. Drum Major this year is Anton Adamek, Color Guard Captains are Leah Dols and Tricia Harstad, Color Guard Instructor is Mrs. Jessica Powell, and the band is under the direction of Lane Powell. Students will be selling "Wake Up To The Band" raffle tickets beginning on Sept. 8th. The winning ticket will be drawn at halftime of the homecoming game on Oct. 9th.
