Mr. Mark Mabe
My Name is Mark Mabe and I am the Band Director here at Highland MS. This will be my 35th year teaching in NC. Ilook forward to working with you and we will have a great year.
All of the 7th and 8th graders in band will be a part of our Pep Band. If you are playing a fall sport, you will be excused from the Pep Band obligations until Spring. We had 20 students to auditin and make this years All County Band. Two students Madison Springer and Ryan Frazier made the All District Band and the Eighth Grade band received and Overall Superior rating at the NCBDA Band Festival in March. The first Superior in the bands' history of the NCBDA!!!
I would like to welcome our beginner band students. This will be your first experience with band instruments. Hopefully all of you have secured your instrument for school and you can bring it on our first day. Some exciting news: We are offering a 7th grade beginning band this year again and are looking for 7th graders who missed out on starting band last year. All you have to do is call the school and have your parents tell them to sign you up for beginning band. Contact Mrs. Kim Proctor i the Highland School office.
