Our Disney Band Trip was a huge success! The Marching Pride had a great performance down Main Street U.S.A. at Disney’s Magic Kingdom! The students were absolutely wonderful throughout the entire trip. Admin and parent chaperones all raved of how well behaved our students are. Thank you, students, for doing such a great job representing PRHS. Thank you, band staff and school admin for all your help with the students. Lastly, thank you so much to all the parent volunteers who came to help with truck crew and chaperoning. Band trips are never easy. There’s always a lot to do with very little sleep or rest. We cannot say thank you enough to the parents who volunteered their time to assist our students. We couldn’t have done the trip without you!

Simply fill out the weekly survey/quiz, hit submit, and then be sure to click on “View Score” to see what information you got right.
