In addition to entering a float in the Student Float category, Redwood Christian Schools was represented by the Redwood Christian Middle School and High School Marching Band in the 2017 Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade on May 13, 2017.   Our entry coordinator was Miss Kristine Humphreys, who teaches on our Middle School and High School campus.  The theme of the parade was “Local Heroes, Service Above Self” and Redwood Christian Schools’ parade entry was awarded second place and our marching band finished third behind Castro Valley High School’s Trojan Marching Band and The Pride of Hayward High School.  Mr. Mark Cagle directed our marching band playing “Semper Fidelis March”, and they did a tremendous job!
Our first Marching Band was comprised of two tenth graders, two ninth graders, three eighth graders, four seventh graders and nine sixth graders!  Band members were: Sophomores Gabriel Francis (Gabe) Salonga and Hanwoong (Max) Wang; Freshmen Andy Kernycky and Sophia Nicholas; Eighth Graders David Joseph (JD) Lansangan, Da Yeon (Amy) Leon and Jezriel Francis Salonga; Seventh Graders Tristan Flores, Ethan King, Benjamin Nunley and Malachi Warneke; and Sixth Graders Dafne Carmo, John Hannah, Josiah Kary, Theophilus Lau, Malachi Matangelo, Andrew Nilya, Brian Nilya, Omar Staples Jr. and Prince Tucker.
