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!
