NEW COMMUNICATION TOOL: In order to keep you as up-to-date as possible on all the latest information, I have joined the Remind 101 Texting Service which will allow you to receive the latest information and reminders about rehearsals, performances, etc. All you have to do is add the following phone number 567-202-2532 to your phone and text @mrkustec. You will then be signed up and ready to receive all the latest info.

Welcome students, parents, alumni, and friends to the Perkins Band Website.

It has been a long time coming but, now that it is here, it is our intention to help keep you informed with what is going on and to help you stay up on the latest information regarding performances, rehearsals, and accomplishments. Parents will find letters, forms, and calendars that can be downloaded just in case your favorite student forgot to tell you something or perhaps forgot to turn in something that was due yesterday. Students can check on rehearsal times, meeting times and performance times just to confirm the information that they listened to so carefully in class. Alumni can keep up with the present day band and perhaps relive some memories: Band camp, trips, concerts, and State. There have plenty of those moments that have been cherished by many for over 46 years.

Even though we have included many things that we feel are important, this is a work in progress so if there is something that you would like to see added we would love to hear from you. We hope that you will return often to keep up with what is happening with the Perkins Band as we strive to continue the “Pride, Tradition, and Excellence” that has been established by our outstanding alumni.

Mr. K

Pride. Tradition. Excellence.
