eNote – April 9, 2019

Hello SP Band Family,

As I type this eNote, the beautiful Virginia farmland is whizzing past my window. We are on our way to NYC/DC to experience Broadway and perform in our nation’s capital. I’m so excited for these students! What a tremendous opportunity to learn, engage in real-life music-making, and represent our fine community with class and distinction! I LOVE THESE KIDS!!!

We wish everyone were able to attend in person! But we want to make sure that you don’t miss a thing! The Parade will be live streamed on ABC 7 News/WJLA’s Facebook page from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm on April 13th. https://www.facebook.com/wjlatv/
