Welcome to the Husky Marching Alliance

Huskies,

 

Thanks for a great performance yesterday and a great 2014 Husky Marching Alliance season!  Congratulations to all our members on being named California State Band Championships Finalists for the 5th time (and 3rd in a row).  While our placement was not what we had hoped for, you certainly worked hard and performed as well as anyone on the field.  We gave you one of the most challenging shows of the entire day, and you gave the audience something to remember (wait for it…) in their DreamZzzz...

 

Congratulations to the Class of 2015 on their final competition.   Their final season featured a Sweepstakes award at the La Habra Corn Festival Parade, as well the highest division 4 score at our home show and a great final halftime show.  The high point of our season, however, was winning Tournament Sweepstakes at the Norco show.  That's a moment that we will remember forever!

 

Thank you to all of our students for working hard all season long; for suffering through rehearsals on perhaps the worst practice field ever; for completing athletic clearance packets for the first time; for checking off the parade march (most of you); for cutting, painting, rolling, and carrying those tarps; for putting up with band director mood swings; for respecting our staff and parents; for changing your schedule to come to extra rehearsals; and for just being really nice, pleasant people who accept each other for who you are.

 

Thank you to all of the parents who worked hard week in and week out to get us to the competitions, move equipment (especially the "prop studs"), fix uniforms, ride busses, and everything else that goes with being an awesome band parent.

 

Thank you to the Centennial Band Booster Board for helping us get organized, raise money, and provide logistic support whenever needed.

 

Thank you to Mr. Gunn, Athletic Director, for our new set of drum heads!

 

Thank you to Coach Logan for helping us out with field time, and for appreciating us. 

 

Thank you to Mrs. Myerly for being a team player.

 

Thank you to Mrs. Gaughan for being my sounding board, for helping me to look at all options, and shuttling kids back and forth when I am busy.

 

Finally, thanks to our own children, Riley and Nathan, for choosing to come to Centennial.  They could have gone to their home school, Chino Hills HS, and had some different opportunities, but came with me instead.  We've had a great time, and I hope you did, too.

 

OK, so much for the sappy stuff.  We have a football game coming up this week.  The game will be at home on Friday vs. Bishop Amat.  We will play in the stands for the game.  I will have information up on the calendar page tomorrow.  We will also need parents to help in the parking lot.  Please contact Tiffany Saller at This email address is being protected from spambots.

News Flash

Huskies,

 We will be taking 2 buses to the game on Saturday.  Although I did post the roster today, that list is subject to change.  We will be performing on the field at halftime, and that performance is TBD.  Tomorrow I will have more information regarding arrival time, band seating, and chaperone passes.  I anticipate only a couple of passes for parents, so I encourage the rest of you to purchase a ticket.  This is a big game for our football team, and an opportunity for the band to perform on the field at Anaheim Stadium in front of their largest crowd to date.  I will send out more information some time on Tuesday.
