Weekly Update: August 30th through September 3rd ~ West Orange Game Week!

Great VICTORY @ Colonial! 

Enjoyed a wonderful first travel experience with the BDMP Pep Band as we went to Colonial High! Our band brought a tremendous amount of energy and truly gave the Blue Darters a “home field” advantage! The energy was palpable as it set up a wonderful Friday Night Lights experience. Many thanks to the Colonial Band, their Director Mr. Jenkins, and their parents for being great hosts. Proud of our BDMB! You bring a tremendous spark each and every week!
