CONGRATULATIONS TO ROSEBURG MARCHING ENSEMBLE!
Last weekend, the 96-member band participated in their first marching band competition in two years in Grants Pass and did a fantastic job! A few highlights: The RME took second place of all bands in attendance. They earned the highest score they have received at this competition since 2013! Most importantly, the students were absolutely well-behaved throughout the course of the trip. They represented our school and community admirably throughout the course of the day. If you would like to catch a performance by these talented young people, come out to a home football game!

This is an ongoing, live program; however, understand that assignments/assessments that have just been submitted may take some time to be graded.
