On Thursday, January 25, 2018 all of our 6th-8th grade band and choir students (and some 5th grade band students as well!) performed at our 8th Annual Spaghetti Dinner held at Beach Park Middle School. Parents, families, community members, and more were invited to come and enjoy delicious spaghetti, salad, desserts, and live entertainment from our student musicians. We are very proud of our band students for such great performances!
We also wish to send a HUGE thank you to all of our volunteers for helping to make the 8th Annual Spaghetti Dinner an amazing success! Thanks to parents/students/teachers/community members/band boosters who cooked, served, set up, cleaned up, took pictures, took tickets, sold tickets, and supported us by attending the event. We are proud of our strong band and choir community here in Beach Park that can make awesome events like this happen every year!
