Welcome and Welcome Back! My name is Mr. Castillo. I am the Band Director here for our GMS Falcons. I teach 6-8 Band, and 7th & 8th Grade Percussion. I am also the director for our school's Pep Band, Marching Band, Jazz Band, and after school Guitar Ensemble. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through email at: mario_castillo@abss.k12.nc.us


    Classroom Hours are listed to the right (Announcements Section).

    Band Office Hours are from 8:00 pm - 8:25 pm, Monday-Friday

    All Assignments and work will be found in our Canvas Course.

    Here is a list of this week's assignments based on each grade: 



















    6th Grade

















    7th Grade

    Final Grades will be in PowerSchool, not Canvas.

    If you are not satisfied with a current grade on your assignments, you are able to resubmit any assignment using the feedback that has been provided on Canvas before the cutoff date.
