The band was organized in 1939 with fourteen members who played trumpets,
trombones, saxophones, clariners, drums, and a tuba.
During the next year the band increased its membership to twenty-two persons and
the cornet was added to the instruments previously played.
Several new instruments were added in 1942, including a large bass horn. A new
division, the Majorettes, became a part of the Band and for the first time the Band was
taught full time and was made an accredited subject.
The following year the magazine drive enabled the Majorettes and those who played
instruments to purchase uniforms. Since that time the membership has steadily increased
from the original fourteen to forty-five, during the present year.
This year has found the band continuing its policy of performing at community
functions as well as serving the school itself in assembly performances, athletic events
and in special school functions.
