Good afternoon Lafayette Band family,
I’m sure all of you have seen or heard the announcement (see below) about Dr. Magee. I want to reassure you that there will be an opportunity to celebrate and recognize the achievements and contributions Doc made to this program and to our children’s lives. Brenda, Ben, and the incoming Board will work with Mr. Smith to make sure our families get to say a well-deserved “thank you”.
Have a great weekend !
