Congratulations Blue Darter Football! 

This picture says it all. The splendor of victory. The euphoric feeling of winning. In truly epic fashion. Overtime. Wow. That is where we are folks… Blue Darter football is on the move and has given us highlight reel excitement all along the way.

Our Blue Darter Band has continued to be a driving force. Paving the path with relentless energy and drive for thirteen games. I cannot express how grateful I am to be part of such a dedicated, driven organization that makes it mark through serving our community in this manner. Our gratitude also extends to every single booster that has helped make this season possible. We continue to thrive because of you. Words will never adequately describe our heartfelt thanks for all that each of you do to make this a reality.

In this time of giving thanks, I offer this…

We are all blessed to be Blue Darters. If you do not share that sentiment, open your eyes, your ears, and your hearts and take in all that is Blue Darter Nation. What we are experiencing is NOT NORMAL. We are APK. And dadgummed proud of it. #iegyb

Congratulation BDMB! We are proud of you!!! #iegyb

Saturday was the BDMB’s annual Marching Music Performance Assessment (MPA) event at University High School. Our students have continued to show growth each time with perform and have done an amazing job at taking the challenges presented to them these past two weeks with weather concerns, cold weather, and whatever else has stood in their way to press on and rock it out! We are proud of each of our members that have completed this journey and grateful to each of them on working hard to achieve this goal!

Thank you to our student leadership team for bringing us together and preparing the environment to rock it out this season! Could not have done it without you!

To our ARMY OF PARENTS that have helped make this season a reality, you will never truly know the impact you have all had – other than to say – this is not possible without you. From concessions, to chaperoning, to uniforms, to you name it…. I am so grateful for your sacrifice, your dedication, and your commitment to our students’ successes. We are blessed beyond measure to have you as part of our band family and know that you are our heroes! THANK YOU TO EACH OF YOU!

To our band staff…. you make the difference each day we come together to practice. Thank you for being a positive influence in the lives of all of our students. I am honored to work alongside each of you and grateful for all that you pour into our band family. Thank you for all that you do for the Blue Darter Band! #iegyb

From a grateful heart,

Mr. L
