Please welcome our new Assistant Band Director - Brendon Foley.

Mrs. Haenfler has taken a job in Mesa Public Schools and will no longer be at Highland HS. Brendon Foley is the new assistant and we are very excited to add him to our Highland Family. A little bit about Mr. Foley - He comes to us from the University of Connecticut, which is home for him. The past few years he has been a member of the Teach for America movement. He has also worked with the ASU Marching band and was a member of the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps and continued to serve as a tour administrator. You will start to see him very soon on campus. Please make sure to introduce yourself and make him feel welcome.

THANK YOU for becoming a member of what is sure to be the finest Marching Organization in the State this year. There is a LOT of information to be had. It used to be overwhelming to try to stay on top of it, but now, thanks to tools such as this newsletter and the internet, there should be absolutely no need for you to worry. We are a 90% paperless organization. It's just the way of the world now. It's better that way. You can't loose anything if it's in the cloud.

Please make a commitment to reading through the newsletter as they come. Don't wait! During marching season, there is a main monthly newsletter at the beginning of the month and weekly updates with competition results and information about upcoming events plus student recognitions. Those are very fun to read!
