MESSAGE FROM MR. LASWELL - The Waterford Wildcat Pride Marching Band has qualified for OMEA State Marching Band Finals! This is my second time as director and the 16th time in school history. The band has been tentatively scheduled to perform on Sat., Nov. 3rd at Brunswick, OH. The band would not be able to achieve the level of success if it were not for our supportive administraters, teachers, board members and community. The students are super excited so if you see them, make sure to congratulate them! I could not be more excited for these fine young men and women.
