Congratulations Bands and Thank You Volunteers & Community!
Congratulations to each of the bands who performed at South Lakes HS on Saturday, 11/1 for VBODA Marching Band Assessment! The spectators and judges were treated to some truly amazing performances!
We are please to announce that our own South Lakes HS Spirit of Reston Marching Band earned a Superior rating for their performance - the highest rating possible!
The South Lakes Band would like to thank the many, many volunteers who made the day a success. In addition to band students and parents from South Lakes, we had the support of other SLHS students and parents, alumni and other community members who just cared enough to come out and help. From all accounts, we achieved our goal of creating a smooth and enjoyable experience in what can be stressful circumstances for the visiting bands. Our volunteers and supportive community made that possible - so thank you!
We would also like to thank the following businesses/organizations for their support:
