Lenape band captures yet another state title


Hours of hard work and dedication pay off as group wins U.S. Band Group 2 Open State Championship
By SEAN LAJOIE
The Sun
When Lenape High School
Principal Tony Cattani leaves the
building during the summer at
about 4 p.m., he notices the same
thing every day the marching
band.
The group arrives before 7 a.m.
each morning and outlasts every
staff member in the building as it
continues to practice into the
evening.
Every day you see a group of
kids performing on our fields, in
our parking lot area, anywhere
they can find about 15 square feet
that they can march around and
practice their instruments, Cattani said.
He described them as some of
the hardest working young men
and women Lenape High School
has to offer.
Im extremely proud of the
students and what they do and
how they represent Lenape High
School, he said.
He also made sure to acknowledge the staff that coaches these
young musicians and their parents who make it all possible.
Steve Waldron has been at the
helm directing this group for the
past 15 years, creating a tradition
of excellence by winning 12 state
or national championships.

Special to The Sun

The Lenape High School marching band recently won another state title, making it the 12th state or national championship the group has
won since band director Steve Waldron took the helm 15 years ago.
Hes designed the shows,
arranged the music and written
each movement for six of the past
seven U.S. Bands Group 2 Open
State Champions, including the
most recent 2015 winner.
However, according to Waldron, taking home the state title
is not the ultimate goal.
The ultimate goal is that we
are having a great time and enjoying what we do. Winning is just

icing on the cake, Waldron said.


Despite the success the program is used to having, Waldron
makes it a point each year on the
first day of the season to advise
the new group that a championship is not promised, by any
means.
I cant do that, I dont have
that capability. I can do a lot of
things but I cannot do that, Waldron said.

However, what Waldron can do


is emphasize to his kids is hard
work, dedication and time management skills.
A core pillar of Waldrons
teachings is to never miss an opportunity to improve yourself, regardless of how short that time
period may be.
His group is one of the only
teams at Lenape that takes advantage of pre-homeroom time, as

its called.
While 10 extra minutes of practice a day doesnt seem like much,
it adds up to extra hours over the
length of a season that most
bands are not getting.
That 10 minutes could be the
difference at the end, Waldron
said.
Due to their dedication, he deplease see BAND, page 14

ACLU: The big bully

108 Kings Highway East


Haddonfield, NJ 08033
856-427-0933

Under pressure from organization, school eliminates God bless America


ifteen years ago, following the
attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, there
was one song that became a rallying cry for our country. God Bless
America was sung by Americans
everywhere, regardless of their ethnic
background or religious beliefs.
The most public places where this
took place were at professional sporting events before the start of NFL
games and in the seventh inning
stretch of MLB games. Fifteen years
later, the practice still continues at
many sporting venues in the United
States.
Piggybacking on this practice, an elementary school in a local school district began saying God bless America following the Pledge of Allegiance,
which, lets not forget, also includes

Your thoughts
What are your thoughts on God bless
America in our public schools? Share
your thoughts on this, and other topics,
through a letter to the editor.

the word god.


But now, 15 years into this practice,
the American Civil Liberties Union
has said enough is enough, and Glenview Elementary School in Haddon
Heights will no longer be saying God
bless America.
The principal at the school, Sam Sassano, defended the practice, writing to
parents that, it has been our view that
the practice is fundamentally patriotic
in nature and does not invoke or advance any religious message, despite
the specific reference to Gods bless-

ing. Alas, the school wont be having


its students say the phrase God bless
America after they say one nation,
under God.
Congratulations, ACLU, you have
succeeded. While children will be
taught about the founding of our country and the rights we as Americans
have, they will be faced with the fact
that if a group as big or as strong as
the ACLU pressures you, you have no
choice but to succumb to its wishes.
While our children will be learning
about the dangers of bullying, they
will be confronted with the fact that if
you are big enough and if you bully
hard enough, you can get what you
want.
Thank you, ACLU. Keep fighting the
good fight.

Band used desert theme this year


BAND
Continued from page 1
fers much of the programs success to the kids who make the
Lenape band what it is.
Waldron referred to the group
as one that is not only very coachable but also takes ownership of
the program while committing
themselves to taking it to the next
level.

Though the band faces stiff


competition each year, it is constantly trying to find the stone it
has left unturned to attain excellence.
Waldron also acknowledged
that none of his success would be
possible without the constant
support of the parents and the administration.
Every year, the group comes up
with a new show or new design.
This year it used a desert theme,
playing music from Lawrence of

Arabia, Aladdin, Arabian Nights,


The Bangles and even a jazzed-up
version of Snake Charmer.
The snake that was created by
Waldron and some of the parents
out of PVC pipe, zip ties and fabric became a crowd favorite.
The audience always had the
same reaction, which was just
pure elation, Waldron said.
Along with several school-related competitions, the group also
performed at the Miss America
parade in Atlantic City last year.
Despite the winning nature
Waldron has established, he still
admits that what makes it all
worth it is the reaction from the
crowd.
Having someone come up to
you and tell you that we loved
your show, we loved your enthusiasm, you were so much fun to
watch, that beats any score or any
placement, he said.
