To all the members, staff, boosters & parents of the Southside Band
As I sat down this morning to reflect on yesterday’s performance I became overwhelmed and immediately wished that the entire band could somehow cram into our living room for coffee. There are so many things that I would like to say, but I’ll start with this: I have NEVER been more proud of this band! This year and marching season has been a joy and a blessing for me personally. Every rehearsal, every class period, every game day and performance “The PRIDE” has earned its name.
Our band knows the value of hard work, dedication, sacrifice and commitment. We have watched you grow as musicians, as leaders and as people. When I think about the young adults that our members are becoming I am filled with encouragement and hope for our future! There is something very special about this band. We all say it’s a family, and that’s because it is. Most of you will not pursue a career in music, but the memories & life lessons that you have learned as a member of The PRIDE will always be with you.
To all of our staff, boosters and parents: thank you for your commitment to this very special program!
It’s a true joy to watch you perform every week! Your shows have an incredible amount of energy and heart to them and the crowd LOVES you. Keep having fun and keep being entertaining! Congratulations on a job well done!
Go PRIDE GO!!
Sincerely, one very proud band director
