Retirement Open House for Ayala H.S. Band Director
After investing in generations of music students Ayala High School Music Director, Mr. Mark Stone, has officially announced his retirement. The Ayala Band and Color Guard Boosters would like to honor his accomplishments by raising funds, as Mr. Stone’s legacy, towards the purchase of instruments such as sousaphones, tubas, euphoniums, trombones, bass clarinets, baritone and tenor saxes. Many students are performing on 25-year-old instruments in need of frequent repair.
While his innovative teaching methods clearly have led the way in the development of high school music and marching programs across the country, his top priority has always been the well-being of his students. Even as he faces retirement he is concerned that the Ayala band students are in great need of new instruments.
If you would like to make a donation in Mr. Stone’s honor, all funds will go towards the purchase of these much-needed instruments allowing Mr. Stone’s vision and legacy to live on. A Go Fund Me page has been set up for online donations, click here. If you wish to donate via cash or check, (make payable to Ayala BAC, and on the memo line: LEGACY. Please send to Ayala BAC, P.O. Box 2104, Chino Hills, CA 91709.
See you May 6th!
