Over MEA break the Woodbury High School marching band went on an incredible trip to Orlando Florida and represented our school as they marched through Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in the “Festival of Fantasy” parade. Not only did the Marching Royals walk along the same route as the beloved Disney characters such as Queen Elsa from Frozen and Woody from Toy story, but they also received the “Golden Mickey” award for an outstanding performance. But the Marching Royals didn’t stop there; they also met and march for the Melbourne High School marching band. Mel High is an extremely accomplished marching band that competes once a year, usually taking home multiple awards (this year receiving nine) The drum major of the Mel High marching band stated that he was “Very impressed with the talent that the Woodbury Marching band brought to the field.” The crowd roared with excitement as the royals marched their field show for the very last time with every ounce of pride they had left. This year was a year of many accomplishments for the marching royals and they were thrilled to take it all the way to Florida to spread the royal spirit. Congratulations on an amazing season royals, you should be proud.

You’re going to hear them roar! – Woodbury High School’s 2014 Homecoming traditions have set new standards for showing school spirit in the most creative of ways. From their imaginative dress-up day themes to this year’s Homecoming T-Shirt, Woodbury students have not been shy about showing how they are royal to the core. Despite a daunting football season with only one win under their belt, the Woodbury student body hasn’t let the season’s turn out hinder their enthusiasm in their school. Up and down the halls, encouraging decorations and decked-out students in spirit gear have formed a bonded community of proud students and faculty. No matter what the outcome of the Royals vs the Ponies game, Woodbury students have certainly won the game when it comes to school spirit.

Slightly delayed, I know, but the awesome costumes for twin day couldn't go unnoticed. This spirit day came out victorious in a battle between twin, jungle/safari, and tie-dye day. Look for the rest of the photos on the photo page (You'll have to scroll down).
To continue our recap of Homecoming Week... Wednesday's Powderpoof and Powderpuff games were a smashing success. To kick things off, the United States of Abs claimed the title among the guy volleyball players. Later, the senior and junior girls headed out to the stadium for a close game of football - congratulations to the seniors on their victory!
Here's a little preview of the Powderpuff game; look for others (and some Powderpoof pictures) in the photos page soon!
