A Fond Farewell

Thank you to all who came to celebrate Mr. Clauge's retirement this week!

It was so much fun to see so many of you that we haven't seen in many years and what a night!  Mr. Clague is indeed a lucky man to have been able to celebrate with the band all year and to add many of the Alumni and parents (present and past) to that celebration last night.

The musicians of the 2021-2022 band are the one's who fought through the utter disappointment of a year and a half apart and not being able to play music with their friends and the one's willing to face the fear of the unknown to bring this music program back from the ashes of COVID!  Without them, Mr. Clague's final year probably would not have been able to go by quick enough for him, but because of their tenacity and heart and their willingness to do whatever was asked..and because they were able to build something amazing out of nothing..Mr. Clague's final year went by in the blink of an eye!

As he said at the beginning of the school year, "I just want to come back and have fun with my friends."  Indeed he did.  All of us did. 

Thanks you Kirk!
