Updates: Disney Reminder and Festival Itineraries

Just a reminder that the money for the Disney trip was due on the Wednesday before the Winter Break. If you still have a balance please pay in full tonight at the booster meeting. The booster club must pay the remaining balance, so we are at the point where you will not be able to attend the trip if the balance is not paid in full. Thank you for your understanding and attention to this matter.


Festival is a concert that is open to the public. We will be performing for state adjudicators and it always helps the students perform their best when they know that their family is in the audience.

They have a lot to be proud of and continue to rise to new levels! Let's celebrate together.
