Century School District Restoring Band Program



Century School District in Pulaski County is bringing band back into its curriculum after going more than a decade without it. The districts band program was cut back in 1999 and faculty believed it would be impossible to get funding to bring it back. But the school now has enough money thanks to music teacher Rebecca Yates and the “Donors Choose Program”. Children in 4th through 8th grade will have the opportunity to join band starting next month. More than 60 students are already interested in participating in band but the school is still in need of more instruments.
