Parents, thank you for all you do to support your child's music education! Dublin is a really special community and I'm having such a great time being here working with your talented kids.There's been a lot to learn in the first two months but I have such a great team to work with; from great band staff to amazing band parents and wonderful student leaders. It makes my busy job tons of fun. The "Mirror Image" Show has been evolving quickly in recent weeks and we are excited to share it with you at our Dublin Invitational on October 21st. I believe there is still a need for volunteers so please check the website and see how you can contribute. www.dhsirishguard.org
Have a great weekend everyone and don't hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns!
All the best,
Hello Irish Guard and welcome back to DHS! Thank you for an amazing band camp. I was impressed with the skill and work ethic throughout the entire week and I am certainly grateful for the warm welcome from students, band staff, and families. I told the kids after the Wednesday evening pep rehearsal, this job is going to be FUN and I definitely found a wonderful place to call home. It was my pleasure to share our progress for the Friday evening performance. I enjoyed meeting so many families and seeing the great community of support. I truly look forward to getting to know everyone in the coming years. It takes a village to make an amazing music program (which you have!) so please get involved in any capacity you are able to. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns in the coming weeks. I feel fortunate to get make music with wonderful young people each day and I'm ready to hit the ground running for a great fall season. Here's to continuing a tradition of success for the Dublin High School Irish Guard!
All the best,
