Good morning all,


I hope you are having a wonderful week! We have a great deal of performance/ rehearsal info to go over so I wanted to make sure you are all set for upcoming date. Here are the items for you to be aware of:



A HUGE congratulations go out to all the members of the 2018-2019 All State Honors Band and Orchestra. I have attached a picture. Missing is Anna Parker so, I substituted a girl named Anna that I know in her place 😊  The concert was FABULOUS!!! The second piece by the orchestra was breathtaking. I am so proud of all of our students. They spent the weekend making music with some of the finest players in the State! You should be so proud of their accomplishments!
