State Large Group Speech:

We are hosting State Large Group Speech on February 4th (click here for the contest website). This is a great opportunity for all Performing Arts families to get involved and, frankly, requires many hands to make reasonable work.

Mo Show 2017:

Just like State Speech, Mo Show helps fund so many things in all the Perfoming Arts. Yes, it is the weekend right after Speech…you’re in practice, you’re in the groove, we need you!
–> You can volunteer
–> You can donate items
(here’s the recipe for Mo Show Puppy Chow!)

Join the PPA!  The 2016-2017 performance year is upon us and now is the time to show your support for the Performing Arts at Washington by becoming a member of the Patron of the Performing Arts.  The experience each of our student-performers enjoys is directly impacted by donations of money and time.  Please consider making the difference – become a PPA member!  Details are on the PPA membership page. Thank you!

Featured album: Java & Jazz 2016


Each month, the Performing Arts directors select a student-performer from each of their groups to be recognized as the Performers of the Month.  This can be based on talent, hard work, character, commitment to the group…whatever is in need of being publicly recognized as making a difference.
The Performers of the Month for October 2016 are Marcus Coleman (Band), Courtney Peckosh (Vocal), Isabel Hogg (Orchestra) and Tyler McGuire (Drama/Speech). Well done to all of these student-performers!



Please support the Dance Team going to Nationals!

The Cedar Rapids Washington High School Dance Team is competing in the 2017 National Dance Team Championship February 3-5, 2017. They are raising money to fund the trip, contribute to the charities and encourage others to dance.
