WOW! Congratulations to our Marching Band! I have no hesitation in saying that this was, by far, the BEST performance of the Spectrum Marching Band in 5 years. I am totally proud of all of my students that participated in this event - it was a long road and a steep learning curve for some but we did it... AND IT WAS AWESOME!
The weather was terrible and we were pretty much soaked as soon as we stepped off the bus. Not one student complained about the rain, the cold, or the wait to start. You were all classy and team-players from 5:00 AM right until we got home. Several kids have even come up to me and said that they made new friends! While I love listening to our kids play I also enjoy listening to spectators comments ABOUT our kids: "Looks great!" "Yeah, Victoria! Welcome to Vancouver!" "You sound great!" "Look how good you all look!" ... "Yeah Spectrum! That was MY school! So proud of you all!"
Thank you to our chaperones: Sue Issel, Carol Davis, Dave Lee, Jen Lindsay, Nancy Laughy, Dorothy VanNice, and Doug Butler! Today would not have been possible without your help and caring for these kids. There was a small hiccup with coverage for the parade. I am hoping that TSN or Global will air portions of the parade tomorrow. Don't worry! We have lots of video from the chaperones and pictures will be available soon (I'll let you know).

Once again... congratulations and THANK YOU for all that you do at Spectrum for Band! Proud of you!
