What Amazing kids we have in FCMB!!

What amazing kids we have in the FCMB!! 4 “Superior” ratings this year at our competitions! That is a fantastic accomplishment! The dedication this group shows is second to none! The weather was a bit of a challenge but they pushed through it and did their best and their efforts were rewarded. Congrats to all our staff this year as well for without them none of this would be possible!
A HUGE thank you to our volunteers this past weekend! From hauling props all over the place in the rain, to chaperoning in the cold, wet weather to hanging soggy plumes to dry for States – you are all appreciated more than you can imagine!
The weekend ended with a wonderful WARM indoor concert today in the gym! One of my personal favorite events of the year!
Lastly, one reminder – the marching band season continues on as long as our favorite football team is winning! Please remember that when picking up your marcher after an away event to please not park along the curb at the front of the school. The buses need to pull up against the curb to safely drop the students off. Thank you!
