Week of October 28

28 Oct

A HUGE congratulations to the band for receiving straight superiors for the 12th year in a row!  This is an amazing testament to the tradition of excellence all of our students possess.  This week we have our final performance of the marching season.  I would encourage everyone to come out and see what our students have been working on for the last 12 weeks.

 In preparation for solo and ensemble we have started collecting the necessary information via the forms below.  Students must complete this form before November 1, 2019 if they wish to perform in Solo and Ensemble.  Last year, Gulf Coast High School had the highest number of entries in the state at the district and state level and I am sure we will continue this trend.
