High School Students and Families

Because of a scheduling conflict with the High School Mid Ohio Athletic Conference track preliminaries we need to make a switch in concert dates. There are many high school students involved in both music and track and we would like for them to be involved in both events that week. This means that the:

High School Band/Choir Concert
will now be
MAY 13 @ 7:00 pm
in conjunction with the 7th & 8th Grade Concert

We are sorry if this causes confusion, and understand that this may, in turn, cause some other conflicts. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Dettmar or Mrs. Culbertson.

Thanks for all that you do to support our program and we look forward to seeing you there!
