George Waters Grade 6 Show Band Visits Linwood!

Students in Grades 4 & 5 were treated to a special visit today from the George Waters Show Band under the direction of Mr. Johnson. The Grade 6 students (including three alumni from Linwood - Tye, Tyler, and Helena) impressed us with their abilities on their instruments that they have only been playing since September! Mr. Johnson reminded our Grade 5 students that it's not too late to change their minds if they would like to try out a band program next year! Please see Mrs. Wurch if you would like any further information about middle years band programs!
