On the evening of Friday, September 7th, the 8th grade band students from Hawthorn Middle South joined the Middle North 8th graders to play a combined performance with the VHHS Pep Band at the football game in Vernon Hills.

This is an annual event, preceded by a barbecue, lots of laughter, and the new experiences that come with joining the high schoolers as they get a taste of Band next year as Freshmen.

Lots of music, lots of smiles, and and wonderful time was had by all!  Thanks to Randy Sundell (director), Drew Russell (asst. director) and all the parents who helped serve dinner and take care of the kids!  Thanks to all the parents who allowed their children to experience a little taste of high school!
