Advanced Band earns a Superior rating!

Congratulations to the St. Peter School Advanced Band! They performed at the 55th Archdiocesan Band Festival this Sunday, and earned a rating of "Superior" and a trophy. Superior is the highest possible rating a band can earn at the festival, so the students should be very proud of that accomplishment.

The band is able to succeed only because of parents who ensure their students attend after school rehearsals, teachers who accommodate our band schedule, and of course Principal Ketchum, who is constantly reminding everyone to support the band!

Their next performance is at the Spring Concert on Thursday, May 11th.
