Members of the Silver and Blue bands  performed together and received a one rating in the Music in the Parks competition in St. Louis, Mo. on Friday, May 3.

Assistant band director Jaimie Shores thought the band did its best in the competition.

“They did well,” Shores said. “Their behavior was great and they represent the school well.”

Freshman Sherry McLeod agreed that the band did a good job in the competition.

“I think we did good for the practices that we had because we had limited practices,” McLeod said.

The bands left on Friday afternoon  and went to Dave & Busters when they arrived. They competed on Saturday morning and that evening went to Six Flags for an award ceremony. On Sunday the band then went to see the St. Louis Arch and visited the St. Louis Galleria Mall.

Junior Alyssa Rule enjoyed Six Flags.

“[I liked] going to Six Flags and hanging out with my band friends,” Rule said. “I also like getting out of town.”

Shores thought that the activities they did were enjoyable.

“It was awesome,” Shores said. “We got to go on fun rides and spend time doing what the students wanted.”

The Music in the Parks competition was the last competition the band performed in. Since it received a one rating this means that the band had a perfect season for the first time, receiving a one in every type of competition.

Band director Debra Steiner is proud that the band had a perfect season.

“It’s exciting to receive a perfect season for the first time,” Steiner said. “ It just shows how hard the kids worked.”
