Ms. Debbie Duke and everyone involved in the Youth Football League would like to extend their greatest appreciation to the Highland Home School Marching Band.

The band graciously performed at all three junior football games Saturday night. The band's entertainment was enjoyed greatly by fans and players alike.

A special thanks to Mr. Turner for the hard work he has put into the band this year and for allowing this special treat. He has been a wonderful asset to our school.
