An assistant band director two months into his one-year contract has resigned from his post at Arkadelphia High School.
Aside from planning the next school board meeting, there are two items of discussion on the agenda: personnel and a student expulsion.
As the band directors meet the full band for the first time this week during summer band practices, all of them are excited about what the year will bring and establishing some of the core values students and the community can expect from the APSD band program, both in the world of music and in life values.
The PowerBand Classic Invitational was held Saturday, Oct. 9, at Lake Hamilton. After a full day of performances, the Arkadelphia High School Band raked in several awards and came in first place in many categories. The Gurdon Go-Devil Marching Band performed well, also.
