Announcement Update...

Announcements (Last one 'till New Years!)

Attention Parents of 7th & 8th Graders...
Just a "heads-up" regarding our Spring performance evaluation trip.  The trip is a one day event on Saturday, May 18th, 2018.  We will be spending the day at Kings Island Amusement Park, but will  be performing at an area high school or college beforehand.  We usually leave around 7 AM and return around 10 PM, and the cost per student hovers right around $50-$60 pp. and includes the year's music t-shirt that we will be wearing to perform as well as in the park so our kids are easy to "spot".  More information will be sent home after the new year!
