Strong Foundations Honor Band

Earlier this month, we were very privileged to help support the Strong Foundations 6th Grade Honor Band at Sioux City East High School.  In it’s 7th year, this honor band is unique because it is for 6th graders.  Most honor bands are for 7th and 8th grade and High School.  What a great opportunity for young 6th graders to play with other talented musicians from 36 schools represented all over Siouxland!  We were especially proud here at Midbell as we had 3 team members children, a grandchild, and a nephew playing in the bands.  Stacie Pepin and the Sioux City elementary band team did a great job organizing and hosting this fantastic event.  With over 200 participants, the East High auditorium was a packed house…way to go Sioux City Schools!!
