MARCHING BAND & COLOR GUARD
Knights Band Family,
Mr. Ehrlich and I want to thank the students for a wonderful 8th Grade Knight on Friday and congratulate the students on a wonderful performance on Saturday. We were thrilled with the performance as well as the results. This is a great start to our competitive season, but there is much work to be done. Every rehearsal for the next four weeks is vital to our continued success.
Special thanks to all the parents who volunteered this weekend at 8th grade knight, the game and the competition. Last night I was serving as a band parent at Harrison High School for the Cobb Marching Band Exhibition and watching the dozens parents of parents who worked from 4:30pm -11:30pm on a week night to make sure that their children had the most positive experience possible reminded me of how thankful I am that we have wonderful parents here at Centennial. Without your help we couldn’t provide the students with all the wonderful experiences that marching band can provide. Thank you!
