BAND: Congratulations to all of our Martin Area Band students for their success at the Optimist Band Festival on March 21 and 22! All of our groups did an outstanding job on stage and many compliments were received. The students represented our schools in such a positive way and they should all be very proud of themselves. Thank-you to all parents and families that came to watch us – it’s so nice to know you’re in the audience and your support is very much appreciated! A big thank you as well to the parents that came to chaperone!!
