After former Band Teacher Joe Verbeke took a leave of absence, the district hired Stephen Cross to fill the open position in the music department.

“I think Mr. Cross is beneficial to the program,” said Junior Jessica Parker. “He has a system for everything, its different than how Verbeke taught, but I think he’s good overall.” Parker added.

Though Cross was met with some resistance from students, as the year comes to an end, the band is learning to adjust to his style of teaching.

“Mr. Cross is more than qualified to teach music, he’s done a stellar job so far.” said Principal Carmen Kennedy.
