School Daze Week of 10/10/16

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. In 2016, the Alvirne High School Bronco Marching Band and Colorguard ROCKED! the Salem Band Show with ResuROCKtion!

When we return to school on Tuesday, we will be viewing the videos of the show and listening to the judges comments. Band students will have the ability to utilize the judges comments as they critique the Salem Band Show.   We cannot rest on our laurels as there are still some details that need to be addressed with regards to our formations and it's also good practice in preparing for our up and coming parades as well as the Disney trip in April.  Wednesday night we'll be rehearsing on the stadium field in preparation of the upcoming away game to Bishop Guertin.
