Buccaneer Band Program Mission:

To DEVELOP an atmosphere of camaraderie.  To DEMONSTRATE the power music has on our community. To MODEL what passion and integrity mean to us. To ACHIEVE greatness through dedication, hard-work and respect; not only in our rehearsals, but also in our daily lives.

“Practice like you’ve never won.  Perform like you’ve never lost!”  

-Bernard F. Asuncion
