Where In The World??

Our DGN Band Hat has a proud tradition of regional, national, and even international travel!  Where are you going this summer?  Is it a new destination for the DGN Band Hat?  Take your hat with you ... and share a picture with Mr. Teague electronically.  He will add it to our gallery.

Here's a link to a slide show of the always updating photo gallery.

Next Year Starts Now

Each April we send a comprehensive mailing home to all band families that includes information about the upcoming school year. Our goal is to share - as early as possible - the Fine Arts Calendar, as well as information regarding summer band, and fall marching band.

Families with students registered for the DGN Band in 2012-13 should anticipate receiving the mailing at home the week of April 23.

If you would like an advance copy of our 'Kick Off' mailing (or simply prefer to view the information electronically), you may CLICK HERE for a PDF file of the complete mailing.
