Bravo Marching Band!    Great first outing on Friday night!  Mr. Hupe & I were very proud of your accomplishments for pre-game and half-time as well as in the stands. Thanks to ALL the parents who helped make Friday night a success – with the truck, chaperones, tailgate, pictures/video, and others I’m not even aware of. Your presence and involvement is incredibly encouraging! Tomorrow morning we watch the video to learn from our performance and then begin to add on drill for movement three!  (more…)
