Your techs get paid?!?!
Wow. It's a very different situation over here. Our past hs techs do it partly because they have become so acclimated that theey don't know how to do anything else other than spend every waking second thinking about band.
I'm sure you're feeling many things.
Today was the last day for our seniors and we all gathered in the band hall after school and cried. It was quite horrible. I'm going to miss them so much but I'm proud of them and want them to have great lives.
Things are going to be so crazy next year. I'm glad that most of them are coming back for the week of fish camp!
