News – March 1, 2020

Greetings Band Parents and Mac Band Supporters,

Congratulations to the Mac Winter Percussion for a great run at the Sherwood Winter Showcase! They finished 4th in the prelims and then delivered a solid performance in the finals to move into 3rd place in their division. All that hard work is really paying off.

Thanks to all the fantastic parents who turned out to help with the (much needed) tents, moving instruments, and feeding the group.


WGI Regional Competition

The Mac Pride Winter Guard heads to Skyview High School in Vancouver this Saturday. This will mark their second appearance at a Winter Guard International (WGI) Regional Competition. Their preliminary performance is at 1:00 p.m.

Here’s the link to event page where you can find all the competition details. Owen plans to post the parent volunteer sign-up form on the Guard’s Facebook page, so look for it there.


Pi Day Pie Sale

Mac Band students are selling Blue Raeven pies this week to raise money for upcoming (and past) expenses. You can order pies (or pie gift certificates) from your favorite musician, but be quick – the sale ends this Friday, March 6th.

If your student needs more order forms, they can be printed right right here.
