I would like to send my thanks and congratulations to everyone that participated in our band tour to Alberta this past week. This was an excellent trip and our students were top-notch, representing Spectrum with pride!
We received compliments at EVERY tour stop about how well behaved the group was, how well they performed in concerts and clinics, how polite they were, and how positively the entire team interacted!
We had 5 performances (1 was even for a high school aged audience where YOUR KIDS chose the repertoire they wanted to perform AND put together an awesome program for them) and 2 clinics/workshops over the past week. Audience members were impressed and delighted by their high-energy, passionate, and FUN performances! Bravo! On top of this, we had a lot of fun at the various activities and events that we went to. Be sure to check the "Spectrum Community School Band" Facebook Page for photos and videos!
Thank you so much to our parent chaperones, Carol Davis, Nancy Laughy and Dave Lee who were amazing all-around! This trip wouldn't be nearly as successful without your thoughtfulness, support, and hard work over the past week!
Thank you ALL for your leadership, teamwork, music and attitude! Enjoy the rest of your Spring Break!

Attendance for all grade 9 and 10 band students, and any TAs involved with the junior ensembles, is mandatory. A poster is attached! Please help advertise this concert by posting to Facebook or emailing to friends and family. The junior bands have been working very hard and this will be a good concert!
5.) Bottle Drive / Tour Band Uniform Inspection - The Spectrum Band Parents association will be having a bottle drive on Saturday February 25th from 9am-1:00pm. A sign up sheet for students will be in the band room on Monday.
A uniform inspection for Tour Band members will also be happening - if you are in tour band please make arrangements to drop by with your uniform so it can be checked over by the Band Parents (this is not a long process and you do not have to stay the entire 4 hours). Thank you for helping to uphold our excellent standard for appearance! :)
Thanks everyone! We are becoming pretty busy right now but your kids are working hard and I am really enjoying working with all of them.
