Weekend Wrap—Up

Congratulations to the students and staff for a fantastic finish to the marching season at the 5A State Championships! Our students displayed incredible artistry during prelims and finals. This is the 4th consecutive year of receiving a superior rating and being named a state finalist. This year's competition was especially strong as evident through the performances of all the bands. Wando, Byrnes, and Summerville consistently compete at regional and national level competitions. We compete along side the best band programs in the state and country.

None of our success would be possible without the tireless work of our parent volunteers. If you have helped in anyway from concessions, feeding the kids, chaperoning, pit and field crew, or making sure the kids are at rehearsal-THANK YOU!

I know the kids don't always necessarily show it but they do appreciate all that you do. This year's band grew and improved tremendously throughout the last 3 months and that wouldn't be possible without everyone's help along the way.

We will take a brief rest period and then hit the ground running preparing for winter guard, percussion ensemble, and concert band season. This is only the beginning to what is sure to be a great year!

Thank you,

Mr. Pence
