The Ross High School band has qualified for the 26th consecutive year for the OMEA State Marching Band Finals!  This qualification is the result of much hard work and dedication on everyone's part - students, parents, and directors.  Thanks to all the pit crew and chaperons for helping to get us this far.  I have attached a link regarding State - videos, schedules, t-shirts, directions and a link to print off the order form for the video.
