To THE HARDEST working group of students and parents,

CONGRATULATIONS on an extremely successful marching competitive season.  Yesterday’s performances were truly inspiring and impressive.  The past 9 years of Vandegrift’s short history have certainly been exciting and successful, but I felt a new sense of pride in our students, parents and community this season.  To top it off….after the organization’s showing this weekend, our students will certainly be regarded as one of the top marching band’s in the country.  I have several thoughts and marching band wrap-up items to communicate regarding the season….but for now – enjoy the well deserved spotlight from the entire music education community.

Also, please enjoy the very short and sweet Announcement Sheet.  More information will come tomorrow for all students participating in Region Orchestra Auditions.  We do not have after school rehearsal, hearing times or masterclasses this week.  We will play at the home game against Lake Travis on Friday.
Congratulations Vipers,
