Students, teachers and parents in Bethel are celebrating a 1st place win today. The Bethel High School Marching Wildcats competed at the US Bands National Championships last Saturday and won. Principal Chris Troetti says the group beat out 23 other bands to bring home an impressive 11 foot tall 1st place trophy.
To celebrate this achievement, a parade will be held throughout the school campus in honor of the Wildcat Marching Band and Color-guard. The parade will begin at Bethel High School at 1:30pm and proceed down Whittlesey Drive to Rockwell, Johnson, and Bethel Middle School and back up Whittlesey culminating at Berry Elementary.
Students will line the parade route at their respective schools.
Parents and friends who would like to view the parade and help us celebrate are asked to park in the junior lot across from the BHS Stadium. Once the junior lot is filled parents may park in the upper senior lot. The parade can be viewed in any location along Whittlesey Drive that covers the parade route.
