Good evening De Soto Band Family,
Currently the forecast for the mid afternoon Homecoming Parade is not favorable for the Marching Band. If the forecast holds, the HS Marching Band will not be marching in the DHS Homecoming Parade due to the potential damage to equipment.
Students and families will be notified tomorrow morning after we check the weather. If the band is not marching in the parade students should go home after school. The band room will reopen at 5pm for band members to prepare for the Homecoming game.
A solid start to the season.
It had been 700 days since the Dragon Pride Marching Band had last competed. We have endured an incredible few years. Despite the setbacks and obstacles, the DPMB put on an incredible performance yesterday at Farmington scoring a 59.3 and earning 6th place.
Yesterday was an incredible learning experience for all of our band members. For over 70% of our marchers, this was their very first time at a competition. So many little firsts, nerves, and glitches were worked out.
I'm incredibly proud of the massive growth that our band has demonstrated already this year and I'm excited for the potential our students have.
We have lots to work on this week including adding Mars and the closing chorale. We can do this!
Let's GO BAND!
