Freeze Frame

Did you know that the Clark Band has a small army of volunteer photographers who capture candid images and action shots at every band event? There are hundreds of photos posted on SmugMug, available for you to scroll through and download 24/7. From summer band to UIL, every band and colorguard student appears! So clear out a couple of hours (and some space on your hard drive) and flip through the pix of your kid and their friends.

Ready, Set, Vertical Raise!

We have kicked off our social donation campaign! Each student has been asked to gather 20 email addresses of friends and family, write them down on the form in their packet, and return them to Mr. Kennedy or Mr. Santana. On October 5th, a representative from Vertical Raise will visit the band classes and set up the student pages. No need to send any emails now; the Vertical Raise folks will help us with that. More details to follow. Every little bit helps!
