Congratulations to our Marching Band! The Marching Band came in #2 out of 6 (!) bands in the Canadian Bands class at the Victoria Day Parade today (We were one point behind the #1 band, Reynolds this year). Great work everyone – very musical and very tight marching! Again, we had everyone arrive on time, and no complaints about the long wait (almost 4 hours before we got moving!). Thank you to all of the parents that helped in the marshalling, took pictures, and cheered us on all along the route. Pictures can be found on the Band’s Facebook page (Search for Spectrum Community School Band) now and will be uploaded to the band website asap.
