Percussion Ensemble Festival

Our percussion students performed on Saturday at the Northwest Georgia Percussion Ensemble Festival at Dalton High School. They had the opportunity to see middle school and high school percussion ensembles from throughout the region as well as an outstanding marimba presentation by the percussion professor at Lee University and the steel drum ensemble from JSU. Thank you Mr. Nelson for organizing this outstanding event for our students and to our parents who chaperoned the event! Our students performed very well in addition to expanding their experience and expectations by observing other outstanding performances. It was a great day of music making and growth.

Senior Spotlight

We would like to continue our Senior Spotlights tradition that was started last year. Seniors or senior Snparents, click here to fill out this form to allow us to customize your senior spotlight. Filling out the form allows us to celebrate our senior’s future plans and share photos of them from throughout their school careers.


Just a reminder that Graduation this year is on May 20, 2022 although our last day of school is not until May 25. This is an important evening for all of our band students because not only do we get to celebrate with our graduating seniors, but we perform as part of the ceremony. This is a required performance for all wind and percussion students. An itinerary will be posted as we get closer to graduation, but I wanted to make sure that you understood that this is an evening commitment for our band students.
