Clear Falls Knights Band

Knight Tales:

  • A special THANK YOU to all of our parents for your help during the marching season! We hope you had fun and you certainly made it memorable for the directors and students!!!
  • We were glad to honor all our seniors and be able to share our show one last time in encore after the game on Friday night.
  • Thank you to the special parents that honored our seniors each game with goodie bags. What a great Knights band tradition for four years of hard work.
