If you own or work for a company that would be interested in supporting the bands by reserving some ad space, please use the Program Ads form ’16 and follow the directions to submit your ad.
Parents can use the Happy Ads form ’16 to submit a picture of their student with a message showing their love and support. This is a great way for parents of seniors to help commemorate their final year as a Cadet!
