Winter Concert Pictures

The yearbook staff has recently contacted us and would like to know if anyone has any pictures from the winter concert.  If you have any photos, please email Mrs. Siebenthal as soon as possible and we will figure out a way to get them shared/transferred.

Unit Orchestra Change

There has been an update to the calendar regarding the Unit Orchestra concert rehearsal schedule (this concert involves all orchestras EXCEPT Chamber orchestra).  The time scheduled for the rehearsal on Mar. 18th has changed.  Instead of rehearsing in the evening, the rehearsal will be from 4-6 pm.  Students will be released from class at 3:25 to get a jump on the parking lot traffic, but ALL STUDENTS WILL NEED TO SECURE A RIDE TO NORMAL WEST THAT AFTERNOON.  Please update your calendar and make sure that you start working on securing transportation that day.
