Good Evening Gators!

Congratulations to our Jazz Band for a great performance at Jazz Fest held at John T. Tuck P.S. on Thursday night.  They played a great set along with 6 other school bands. Thank you Mr. Hull for all the work you put into the Jazz band and Symphonic Winds band practices and events.  The Symphonic Winds are looking forward to their upcoming trip to Canada’s Wonderland on May 29th where they will perform and have some fun riding the roller coasters!
