    Hello Warrior Band and Drill Team:
    My name is Mr. Grotto (Mr. G.) and I am the Director of Bands at New Egypt High School.  Although I have met most of you already, I want to take this opportunity to officially welcome you to the 2019-2020 season.  I look forward to working with you as the year progresses.
     Please feel free to share your ideas on improving our program.
    Our band is continually growing. 
    I welcome your thoughts on how to increase membership. 
    Just remember: quality is just as important as quantity.
