Congratulations Spectrum Marching Band – First Place in the Canadian Bands category at the Victoria Day Parade, today! Bravo, everyone – your hard work really paid off and you embodied our motto of "Sound. Appearance. Precision!" I am so proud of each and every one of you and am very proud to be your teacher. Thanks to our amazing band parents that helped us prepare for the parade by braiding hair, helping with uniforms, carrying water, taking pictures, and so much more.
If any of you have pictures or videos of the parade, I would love a copy (on CD or USB Stick) so I can display them for Spectrum students!
