We are excited to welcome Glen Crosby to Tuesday's rehearsal (click here for bio). Attendance is CRUCIAL this week of rehearsal as we make final changes and improve the show. If you have outstanding donations, get these in ASAP so we can pay our instructional staff. Thank you!
The Gahr Marching Gladiators competed this weekend at the San Dimas Field Tournament and earned 1st place Color Guard, 1st place Percussion, and 1st place overall in Division 3A!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all our dedicated and hard-working booster parents that make our program possible!
