A huge thank you to the Criminal Justice Academy, Officer Kopp, and Mrs. O'Toole for providing this exceptional learning experience! :)

CONGRATULATIONS to the WHS Blue Blazes Marching Band and Color Guard - a Gold Medal in the State Finals and Second Place in New England! BRAVO!
From our Director of Bands: "We are proud to announce results of the championship performances of the year for the 60 students of the Marching Band and Color Guard! Saturday evening in the Maine Finals Westbrook earned a Gold Medal with a score of 4.93 (out of 5.0 possible). On Sunday they performed at the New England Championships in Reading,MA and scores a 94.8-earning 2nd place! Thanks for the support throughout the fall - we are all a bit tired but was a nice ending to a season where they worked really hard to achieve at a high level as a team. We are very proud of their efforts!" Kyle Smith, Director of Bands
On behalf of the Marching Band and Color Guard, I want to thank all of who came out to see the Championship Preview last night on Olmstead Field. Over this season, the show has evolved to a point of complete symbiosis. The synchrony, the musicianship and dance, the accuracy, and the "flow" and the elegance of movement make it difficult for the audience to see where the various elements of Marching Band and Color Guard begin or end. The drill delivers moments throughout that are truly breathtaking. What an exceptional and hardworking group of performers!!! If you want to witness this work at the Championship level, please come out to Waterhouse Field in Biddeford for the FINALS tomorrow, Saturday,at 5:45 pm (arrive early to find parking and to find a place in the stands). They will take the show one last time to Reading MA on Sunday for the New England finals!! If you see Kyle Smith, Joey Hendricks, or any of the Marching Band/Color Guard Students in school today, please give them a well-deserved high 5!! Sincerely, Sue Proulx
