This Saturday the Gahr High School Winter Guard competed in WGASC Championships and earned 4th place in the Regional AAA division! The guard also received special pins for being promoted from the 2A to 3A division. This is a tremendous achievement for Gahr's first successful Winter Guard season in 7 years! Special thanks to John Arroyo for his dedication, hard work, and great writing & design! Thank you to our amazing booster guard parents for their tireless effort and energy to make our guard season so great!
WINTER DRUMLINE QUALIFIES FOR ADLA FINALS!
The Winter Drumline performed Sunday at ADLA Semi-Finals and won 1st place in our round! Gahr will advance to ADLA Finals on Saturday, April 26th at Long Beach City College. This is an incredible accomplishment for Gahr's first indoor marching drumline in 13 years! We have a lot of work to do the next two weeks as we prepare for finals :)
Thank you to the parents who volunteered their time and food for the post-festival BBQ celebration! Special thanks to Mr. Chan and Mr. Stockwell who *assisted* Mr. Loney in grilling burgers. Congratulations on the band's hard work and Unanimous Superior rating from SCSBOA Festival!
