Band BBQ on Thursday

We had a very busy last week! We performed for the Special Olympics on Tuesday, the CES Milestones Pep rally on Thursday, our 2023 Marching Band meeting Thursday night, and three CUES Milestones Pep rallies on Friday! The busy week culminated in our awards ceremony and band party on Saturday. Thank you so much to the parents who cleaned, organized, decorated, provided food, and assisted throughout the evening on Saturday night! It was a fun time had by all. Perhaps the best part of the evening was when the students ran to the stage to perform the dance break from the show one last time! Seniors, we are so proud of you and look forward to continuing our celebration of your impact these next few weeks! Don’t forget to wear your crazy socks on Thursday at the BBQ for our senior ceremony during Battle Hymn.
