On Thursday and Friday last week, four LISD bands participated in the “Pirateland Music Festival” we hosted. The JH Non-Varsity band received a 2nd division, and the 5th Grade, 6th Grade and HS Non-Varsity bands all received 1st Divisions.
While I was driving the bus, returning the 5th Grade band students to the elementary after they performed, I had one of those moments I will remember forever. In celebration of their 1st Division, the entire bus of 5th Grade students sang the Alma Mater with great enthusiasm. Thank you Mr. Piles, Mrs. Conover, and all the Elementary teachers for the work you have done with these students over the years – what great kids!
