Instrument and Music Area Care and Kindness  
We have raised an extreme amount of money for our instruments.  The drumline cost us over $15,000, tubas cost $4,000, baritone horns $1,800, French horns $1,500 each , Baritone Saxophone $3,000 and the list goes on.  We cannot be careless with all of the wonderful things we have worked to own.  Please be gentle and careful with the music area.  Pick up after yourselves following lunch and make the space cleaner for the next person.  We are fortunate that we have this space to share, DON’T ABUSE IT !!! or you will definitely LOSE IT!!!!
