McCleskey Middle School Bands












A note from your directors

          We would like to welcome all McCleskey band students back for the 2018-19 school year! We are looking forward to meeting all of our incoming 6th grade students, as well as continuing to build upon our achievements from last year. Parents, thank you for investing in your student’s music education. We both feel strongly that your child’s participation in our program will present them with opportunities to grow and develop in a multitude of ways. Students, thank you for your interest in playing a music instrument.Your musical journey has just begun and we cannot wait to share with you all of the wonderful things that music has to offer. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have. We will be communicating with you often throughout the school year so that we can work together to insure that all who participate feel valued and successful. Let's have an awesome school year!

Mr. Miller and Mr. Paller
