Out like a lamb... 

It's hard to believe that March is already coming to an end!  There was no better way to wrap up the month than with an excellent concert on Wednesday night featuring Meany’s band ensembles — Cadet BandSenior Band, and Jazz Band — as well as Meany’s BWB Drumline. The concert was well attended by the Meany community, and all of the groups sounded fantastic! 

You'll have another opportunity to hear Meany musicians when the orchestra ensembles perform on April 2nd. Principal Oatis will be on hand with Assistant Principal Foyston to say hello and answer questions before the concert. Be sure to check it out.
