I hope everyone is having a great Easter and Passover.  We had a great week this last week culminated by our Battle in the Valley II Drumline Competition on Saturday.  Thanks so much to the people who helped organize, plan, and run it - it was many people doing a lot of excellent things that made it so successful.  To think that just 2 years ago it was an idea that Jamie Harres and some other parents who attended had after we went to our first Drumline Competition at Lincoln HS in Tacoma - what a terrific event The Battle has become!  Again, congratulations to the "Belt-Winners" from Newport HS (HS Division) and our own Lakeridge MS (MS Division, who were in their first competition ever) and again thanks to everyone who helped.  So now we move on to our next couple of weeks and some big events for our State Solo-Ensemble participants Friday and Saturday and our Jazz Ensembles next week (the NW Jazz Band Festival at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, OR).  Our Spartan Marching Band is also rehearsing and preparing for their next parade at Sequim on Saturday May 11th, so everybody has something going on.  I've attached the Time-Line and Information for the upcoming State Solo-Ensemble events and for the NW Jazz Festival Trip May 3-5.  I've also attached the information for our VERY IMPORTANT MEETING for 2019-20 Students and Parents on May 7th Tuesday - there will be lots of information about next year.  A couple of other reminders:
  • Seniors - Remember that the SBPA Scholarship Forms are DUE WEDNESDAY APRIL 24 BY 3:00PM TO MR. CARL'S OFFICE
  • Juniors and Seniors - Remember that THIS Saturday is the Annual UW HUSKY JUNIOR-SENIOR BAND DAY where you can perform with the Husky Band at the UW Spring Football Game at Husky Stadium.  Go to huskymarchingband.org BY TODAY TO REGISTER!
