I hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy during these challenging times. Everyone is adjusting to the current normal; including the band staff. We
continue to plan for the end of year activities as well as the upcoming school year.
Please help me thank Dot Keil and the many volunteers who made the 2020 Virtual Cakewalk a success! Outstanding leadership to transform a time honored tradition into something amazing!

GHMB 2020 - Squad Leader Applications
It’s hard to believe we’re already discussing and planning for the 2020 edition of The Pride of Grandview Heights. One of the most important steps is the selection of the student leadership; our Squad Leaders. Any returning members, currently in grades 9-11, are eligible and highly encouraged to apply.
The application process is divided into three sections (listed below):
(1) Student Squad Leader Application
(2) Individual Marching Technique Evaluation
(3) Individual Musical Performance Evaluation
All applicants are expected to join the 2020 GHMB Squad Leader Application Group on Schoology. The group code is: 3GT6-PTGV-BWWDP
Detailed instructions regarding the application process will be posted later today.
Online applications are due next Friday, April 24th and squad leaders for the 2020 GHMB will be announced via email on Friday, May 1st.
