PTSC Standouts:


INpact with DCI at Lucas Oil Stadium:  We had several Boone Grove students perform for thousands of people in Indianapolis earlier this month and it was a great honor for those students who were selected from across the state.  The students were Hayden Neis, Ashlee Ramos, Emma Grant, Anthony Young, Robert Young, Rachel Stewart, and other members of the Boone Grove Middle School band.  The students met and played with famous trumpet player Al Chez and played for hundreds of people at the Pan Am Building and at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Congratulations to those students and for the time, effort, and energy they spent working on their skills this summer!
