Veterans Day Performance Recap Excellent job on Tuesday’s performance. We received several compliments from many teachers, students, and community members. I am very proud of Concert Band and Percussion students for getting up a little early to help honor veterans in Bernardo’s first Veterans Day Flag Raising Ceremony.

Knott’s Recap Thank you to all of the students who attended the Knott’s trip for a very smooth day! Overall, behavior was much better than previous band events. Your flexibility with our warm up, performance and changing areas is noted and demonstrates your maturity. We received compliments on behavior from parents and from Knott’s employees. A huge thank you to our parent chaperones and volunteers — these trips cannot happen without your support!
