2020-2021 School Year

Hello everyone!

The blog has been updated to reflect specifics of the 2020-2021 School year.

One thing to note: We will be moving away from this blog in the coming year to transition to a Google Site that will be easier to manage and for you to access. Since our building uses the Google Suite to integrate, we thought it would make sense for the music department to get on board as well. For this year, we will remain on this blog for any pertinent information. Starting in the 2021-2022 school year, we will have moved to a Google Site.

Looking forward to another year! It will be a strange one, but we are all in this together and we will make it through! Stay well and see you on September 9th.

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 School year!

Welcome back Cougars! We have an exciting year ahead of us including a variety show, multiple performances and a full scale musical! The blog has been updated with all information pertinent to the upcoming school year. Check it out! Most importantly, enjoy the last days of summer! See you all very soon.

I want to wish every one of you who participates in musical activities, parents who support their children to participate, and everyone in the area who shows appreciation for the continuing advancement that this program makes every year.
