Scobee Middle School band students competed against 23 other middle schools at the Region 11 All-Region Band Competition. Over 500 middle school students from South San, Southside, Medina Valley, Harlandale, East Central, Schertz/Cibolo, and Judson ISD all compete at this event to earn a spot in one of the two All-Region Bands, which are similar to All-Star bands made up of the best middle school musicians. The Tiger band represented SWISD well, with 24 Scobee students earning a spot in either the top Band or the 2nd Band. We also had 12 students earn a spot as All-District band members. For the 2nd year in a row, the Scobee band has had the most students earn a place in the bands compared to all of the other 23 middle schools that competed! Hector Telles, the Band Director at Scobee Middle School, said, "Everybody should experience being a part of some type of music class, whether it's mariachi, band, choir, or even theater, because it brings out a different side of people that makes you feel good, happy, and accomplished." Watch this week's Beyond The Arches to learn more about some of the leaders from the Scobee Tiger Band and what makes them unique!
