Ladies and gentlemen, I hope you are ready to go to Washington DC. I am excited about this band trip. We could not have done it without our wonderful band parents, so make sure you say thank you to all of them. Don't forget to pack your black socks!
All in all, great game Friday Night. I was really proud of our band for putting on such a strong performance. Also proud of our Football team, I know it was a hard loss, but you guys played so well. Cheer also did great, all three groups were a strong representation of what SBC has and why this is a awesome school!
I've got the best high school band. Having a bunch of the kid come out and help play for the opening teacher meetings. You guys represented the students very well. See you all Wednesday!
The students continue to amaze. Yesterday we completed setting music and drill for the Bruno Mars Show. We are now cleaning up individual sets and working on perfecting the music. Really proud right now.
Reminder that the pool party is tonight. 8:45pm
We just broke for lunch on the first day of band camp. So far, things are going great. We switched some things up this year and I think it is helping. For the first day, and maybe into the week, we are not as worried about marching and drill as we are music. My hope is that this will set up a great foundation for the students. When we set drill the music will be in mind.
I am most impressed with the students attitudes. They all seem to be having so much fun and getting along very well. The upper classmen are taking good care of their freshmen and making them feel like they are really part of the group.
Currently driving toward Orlando under a light rain. The students are starting to wake up. We wl be stopping soon for breakfast. The Florida air is warm and refreashing!
