Forward March--This upcoming week is a holiday for students and staff alike, but there is always Spartan working somewhere. This week we have the basketball teams getting ready for the North Coast Section playoffs and they will be practicing for those post-season games. Badminton gets back into the gym as well as continued work for baseball, softball and other spring sports. But all eyes will be on the Band which on Saturday February 24th will be part of the annual Chinese New Year parade in San Francisco. The event is seen by over a million people live and on TV, which means a pretty high profile gig. We love these moments because they test us in a most "authentic" way. Putting students in real life scenarios means that they will be evaluated by the same standard as an adult might be. We want our students to rise to the occasion and the Band is gearing up for it. We have the advantage of course, of having the West Contra Costa Teacher of Excellence, Mr. Radkiewicz, who is the class sponsor and band leader. The kids have been on the track weekly getting ready (it's a long march and long day) and sound great. Don't believe us? Come to the City and hear us out. Happy President's Day and Happy Year of the Dog!
