Roosevelt Magnet School’s Marching Band kicked off its season at the 2013 Labor Day Parade this past Monday. Being the only middle school in District 150 with a marching program, Roosevelt’s band students take much pride in getting to participate in these events. This year the band will participate in the Labor Day Parade, Veteran’s Day Parade, and the annual Santa Claus Parade. Over the years the band has built up a nice following, and it's great to hear the crowd cheer for Roosevelt students as they march down the streets of Peoria. Students and staff work hard in rehearsals and try to maintain the integrity of the program year after year so the school's great fans are never disappointed!
