The Nettleton School district band has a long tradition of excellence. We would like to thank our supporters for all their help throughout the years. Last year for the 2016-2017season, the Nettleton High School Band received all superior ratings on the marching field. We placed 2nd at the Corinth Band Competition and 5th in the state over all the 3a bands at state championships. We also received superior ratings on the concert stage at our concert evaluation. We are planning to continue our successes this year in both Jr. High and High School.
