Congratulations to everyone involved in marching band this fall! The Grey Cup Parade was a huge success and students should feel very proud of themselves for what they accomplished together. There were so many cheers, positive comments, and thank-you’s along the route. The weather was COLD (-4) but there were no complaints – THAT’S strength of character, folks! Thank you to all of the parent chaperones that came along on the trip (supervising, loading, braiding hair, uniform checks, scarf tying… The whole 9 yarsds!). We couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks again to all of you. I am so proud of our band and our school!
