NISD Ensembles Join Special Tribute to Our District “Olympians”

Jazz ensembles from Garcia, Connally, and Jones Middle School and concert bands from Luna Middle School and Holmes High School joined in the 2014 Special Olympics held at Gus Stadium during the week of March 3-7.  Ensembles provided entertainment before the opening ceremony as well as parade music for competing teams of athletes from each elementary, middle, and high school as they passed the reviewing stands.

Due to inclement weather on March 3 and 4, these two days of competition have been rescheduled for March 17 and 20.  Band directors have graciously adjusted campus schedules to provide music for this special group of athletes.

Band directors preparing these exceptional ensembles include Guerrina Esparza (Garcia MS), Bobby Baiza (Connally MS), Richelle Molina (Jones MS), Robert Gamez (Luna MS), and Daniel Lugo (Holmes HS).
