March Mania Comes to Wolf Creek!

March Mania Comes to Wolf Creek!

No, it doesn’t have anything to do with basketball, but there are brackets involved!  March is not only a month of the year, but it is also a style of music and the “President’s Own” United States Marine Band is putting on a fun activity for students around the nation.  Starting on February 26th, there will be two marches pitted against each other each day and votes will be taken from around the country to pick the favorite.  The winning march each day will move to Round 2 of voting and will compete against another winning march.  This process will continue until a champion is chosen.

                The students in 3rd and 5th grade at Wolf Creek have already been listening to marches and filling out their brackets with their predictions as to which marches are going to win each day.  When the brackets are completed and the voting starts, the students will get a chance to vote each day for their favorite march and we will check our brackets the next day to see who chose the correct winner.  Any students who have chosen the correct champion by the time we get to the end will be honorary “March King for a Day” and will receive a special reward.

                Here is the website with all the details and recordings of the competing marches: http://www.marineband.marines.mil/Unit-Home/Sousas-March-Mania/.  If you would like to fill out a bracket with your family (brackets can be downloaded from the site above) or participate in the voting each day starting Feb. 26th, visit this site and you’re all set!  Good luck!
