Happy Anniversary Woodridge!

The DGN Trojan Marching Band performed this weekend in a Village of Woodridge Parade that celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the Village, and the 50th Anniversary of the Woodridge Park District. 

Thank you to the dedicated members of the Marching Band who did not let a little rain dampen our community spirit. A special shout-out to the Woodwinds, who became a 'dancing band' after rain forced those musicians to leave their instruments on the buses.

Trojan Marching Band Makes 2019 Season Debut

Congratulations to the members of the 2019-20 Trojan Marching Band for a terrific debut performance this weekend! On the field, and in the stands, student musicians provided an energetic and captivating display of musicianship and spirit.  

Special appreciation is extended to the members of the Class of 2020, and their families, as North High celebrated the contributions of our seniors prior to the Pre-Game Show and Kick-Off.

Thank you to Dr. Emmie Pawlak, and our team of Uniform Volunteers, who coordinated the sizing and executed the distribution of 210 marching band uniforms in preparation for the season. The band looked fantastic because of your hard work, dedication, and volunteer spirit!

Appreciation is also extended to the volunteers who provided the Marching Band with water during the game, assisted with moving Front Ensemble instruments, sold merchandise at the DGN-FOFA table, and provided video for our staff and students to review next week.
