A Celebration of the Life of John Rusnak


Please join us on Tuesday August 12, 2014 at 7:00pm at the Church by the Glades for a celebration of the life of John M. Rusnak, our beloved band director.

The family has requested that the Eagle Regiment and members of the 2013/14 Jazz Ensemble A perform selections of music near and dear to Mr. Rusnak.

During this service we will hear messages given by friends of the family and from Pastor Tom of Church by the Glades to commemorate the life and legacy of our friend and teacher, John Rusnak.

In lieu of sending flowers, the family has requested that donations be made in John’s memory to Stoneman Douglas Marching Eagles Parent Association (MEPA, Inc.).  In support of this wish, MEPA is establishing the John M. Rusnak Legacy Fund.  Contributions to the fund can be made by clicking the Donate button below, or by check to MEPA Inc. 4613 N. University Drive #366, Coral Springs, FL 33067.

FBA State Concert Band MPA Superior!!!

Congratulations to the 56 member Stoneman Douglas Wind Ensemble for their Straight Superior ratings at the 2013 Florida Bandmasters Association State Concert Band Music Performance Assessment.  For this outstanding accomplishment, the Wind Ensemble was presented with the prestigious Otto J. Kraushaar Award, the FBA’s highest honor. This award, named for the FBA Hall of Fame member, Otto J. Kraushaar, is given only to those few bands in the state that earn all superior ratings from all judges at all Music Performances Assessments for the entire school year. This marks the highlight of what has been one of the most successful years in the Band’s illustrious 23 year history!  A Special “Thank You” to the Stoneman Douglas Band’s Senior Class.  They have been the core to all of our ensembles over these past few years and will be greatly missed.
