Happy Friday! We have had a full week of preparation and performance, getting ready for our concert on Monday! We are also thankful to have had an opportunity to sing for and in honor of some of our nations Veterans and Medal of Honor winners this week. We are blessed to be a part of a district that heavily values experiences and opportunities outside of the classroom and it is always a pleasure to be a part of these unique events they provide and support. We are grateful for and encouraged by the constant desire for our program to participate and share in these events!
