|Featured album (Operation Backstage):
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 September 2016 are Maggie Wright (Band), Jack Rooney (Vocal), Eliot Barker (Orchestra), Holland McMahon (Dance), Allie Klinsky (Drama/Speech) and Becca Bridges (Tech Crew). Well done to all of these student-performers!
Please support the Dance Team going to Nationals!
