Marching Band Performs at Minneapolis Aquatennial Torchlight Parade

The East Central/Willow River Marching Band participated in the Minneapolis Aquatennial Torchlight Parade on Wednesday, July 23rd.  The parade started at 8:30 PM and was on Hennepin Ave. from Dunwoody College of Technology to 5th Street.

The band performed Grenade by Bruno Mars and Colonel Boogie.  Our marching band has marched in this parade every year since 1992.  There was an estimated attendance of over 75,000 people at this event. 

Great job to all the band members!  Thanks to former East Central teacher, Zach Johnson, for the picture you see above.
Just Over A Month Away

School is just around the corner.  Are you getting ready?

The East Central PTO is once again supplying the students of grades PreK through 6th with Educational School Supplies.  Students will need to provide their own gym shoes, back packs, and other clothing needs.

This is a huge undertaking for them.  Please take the time to thank them.

Open house will be on August 28th and the first day of schools is September 2nd.
