See’s Candies & City Champs 2018

I hope everyone had a relaxing and restful Thanksgiving break! I certainly enjoyed the extra sleep, home cooked meals and spending quality time with family. Now that the break is over it’s time to get back to work. Student’s need to come back with a renewed sense of spirit, energy, and enthusiasm so we can finish off the year strong and rejoice in what we have accomplished. Our final band & dance team competition is this Saturday, December 1stand the Winter Concert is on Friday, December 7th! Let’s bring back that Huskie spirit and make them both a huge success!


See’s Candies Winter Fundraiser!

The holidays are here, and so is our Winter Fundraiser! The sale ends this Wednesday, November 28th. Show your appreciation of our award-winning music program by participating. Our goal is to raise over $3000 to pay for instrument supplies, concert music, & bus transportation to spring festivals for Band, Orchestra, Indoor Drumline, & Jazz Band. We are hoping families will take part in selling chocolate and or making a direct donation to the music department. If each student sold 10 boxes of chocolate and OR made a $50 donationwe would easily meet our goal.  Please join us in supporting our award-winning program.
