Student Appreciation

We received a card from a student who thanked the boosters for assistance in paying for their Florida trip, which otherwise would have been unaffordable.

Gunner Tribute Wrap Up

There are a number of T-shirts left from the Gunner tribute. Anyone interested in a shirt, at a reduced price of $8, should contact Don Krolikowski, 216-524-8260. The video of the tribute event is still being processed. Eric Sarley completed the interview video and presented it to Mr. Gunlicks.

Future Notes

The Commissioned Musical Piece, which will be presented to and in the name of Mr. Gunlicks , is on schedule to be completed later this year. The piece was funded by the boosters in appreciation for Mr. Gunlicks' years of service to the district. There will be a premiere performance of the piece by the IHS Concert Band.

The Numbers Are In

Current enrollment for marching band: 58 HS students (61 last year); 22 8th grade students; plus a few returning upperclassmen brings our total to 90 students (about same as 2009). The Drill team will perform with 14 members (up from 2009). Student officers are:  Joe Ciulla - President; Mallory Krolikowski - VP; Sarah Baran - Secretary; Nick Martin - Treasurer.
