Special thanks to Mr. Cole and Mr. Norton of HTMS for their support of this event and for getting the eighth graders ready and on site at Pope for the evening. Thanks to the PBPA volunteers who set up the reception and the equipment crew parents who assisted with setup and tear-down of the gym.
This was a great chance for eighth grade families to meet high school families and learn about the and experience. The benefits of participation in high school band are many and varied. You only get one opportunity and you must sieze it in order to be a part of the many aspects of being in a comprehensive music program.
We look forward to more of this type event...and we eagerly await the eighth graders on "Eighth Grade Night" for the football game. Before you know it, they will be a part of the Pope Band family!
