Here are some updates and reminders for the week of April 4, 2016 (Please make sure you read all items so nothing is missed):
1) 5th Annual Live Arts Festival (Completed)
Last Friday (April 1) this event was held at the WTHS Almond Campus.
This was the first time it was held on a Friday and it was a huge success.
A record number of people attended to support all our Arts students and see all the amazing things they are capable of!
Thanks to all the band volunteers who ran the concessions for this event and assisted in many other ways!
2) Winter Guard Championship Competition @ LaPorte (Completed)
Last weekend (Saturday/Sunday - April 2/3), our Varsity Winter Guard competed at LaPorte High School (LaPorte, IN) for the Annual Midwest Championships.
They had their best performance of the season and finished a close second, narrowly missing first!
In addition, for those who do not know, our Varsity Winter Guard is the only guard team in our class and circuit to have finished within the top 2 spots for the last 3 years in a row!
Congratulations on a job well done and continuing our legacy of excellence!
