Area of Choice: Band Department
This week in Band we have finished WASBF. We had a great time last Friday and I met up with some of my friends from the other schools. It was interesting to see how we all did and the parents got to come see all of our hard work unleashed. We also got to see the High School Jazz Band play, which was really awesome. I hope everyone had a great time and I can’t wait to do WASBF again next year.
Shout out to 6th Grade Trumpets! YEAH!
