Hello Everyone,
I believe that everyone received a couple of messages about rescheduling the 5th, 6th, and 7th Grade Christmas Concert through the automated messaging system.  It is correct that the concert will now take place on Monday, December 18th.  But the time will be 7:30 p.m. and it is for the 5th, 6th, and 7th, not 4th.  In fact, everything is the same as it was on Thursday, but now on Monday.
Thanks for your patience,
Mr. Ernst

Hello Everyone,

The formal portraits for the High School Band we had scheduled for today, Wednesday, December 13th, have been rescheduled for this Friday, December 15, due to the cancelling of school.  We will be using the same schedule.  Be safe if you are traveling today.

Hello Everyone,

We have hired Gleason’s Portrait Studio to take formal portraits of each of the individual High School Band Member, December 13th, during school.  The portraits will be of each band member, with their instrument, in their concert uniform.  Your son/daughter will be bringing a hard copy home.  You are under no obligation to place an order, but all band members must have their photo taken.  If we reach $1500 in sales, Gleason’s will put together a composite of all band members to display in the hallway showcase.  If you have any questions, please contact me at your convenience.
