Congratulations Sundevils!

Great job Band and Color Guard on a terrific Marching season! Both parade and field performances were the best of the year at Arcadia and you can be proud of the hard work and dedication you gave to our program!

Congratulations, and Thank You for a Great MC Tournament of Bands!

Thanks to all the parents, alumni and students for working so hard on the Mt. Carmel Tournament Saturday. It was a well run event and I received nothing but great feedback from all the visiting Band Directors. The Mt. Carmel Tournament of Bands continues to be one of the finest Band Reviews and Field Tournaments in Southern California!!!

Special thanks to, Matt Aneshansley and Dave Brooks for your leadership on the event!
