     Past events:
    The full band rehearses every Tuesday at 6:45-7:45 AM.  Since the band members rehearse during their various scheduled class times, we don't get the opportunity to work as a complete ensemble.  Although morning rehearsals aren't mandatory, it is highly recommended that every student makes an effort to attend these rehearsals, to not only get extra help, but to also build a cohesive ensemble sound.  
    The choir 
    rehearses every Thursday at 7:15 -7:55 AM.  Students are highly encouraged to attend morning rehearsals to learn the songs and work on valuable vocal-building exercises.  Everyone can sing, and this group provides an outlet for each of its individuals to share that gift with the school and community. We are proud to announce that Mr. Kenneth Beere will be directing the Middle School Choir during the 2016-17 school year.  Mr. Beere is an accomplished vocalist and educator.  Mr. B., as he is affectionately known, holds a degree from the prestigious Westminster Choir College; one of the nation's best conservatories for vocal music. 

    The Band rehearses every Friday from 7:40-8:40 AM and lessons for the various instruments are during the other days of the week. It is never too late to join the band. Please visit the Elementary Band Page under the Band column on the left of this page for complete details.
