Welcome Mr. Yaros!
Mr. Michael Yaros joins our staff this year as the Director of Bands.
"Over the years, at district band festival, I have noticed Marlette Bands on stage as being both musical, well-dressed, and respectful. Some years ago, I applied to work here, and while I wasn't the first choice candidate, I did make it to the second round. Since then, while working at Port Huron Schools, I developed a desire to become a 5-12 program director, instead of only middle school. When the opening at Marlette presented itself once again, I jumped at the chance to work in such a wonderful community. This school has deep roots in the arts and I am thankful to be a part of it."
He adds, "The overwhelmingly best thing about Marlette is the students, staff and community. I have only been here a short time, and everyone has made me feel so welcome. The parents have been so supportive, and the community is very generous in its support to the program, both in time and energy, and in financial support. I never thought I would have better students than the ones at my last school, but Marlette students have proved me wrong. They are wonderful and I love them already."
We are excited to see where he leads our music program!
