Congrats 8th Grade!

Congratulations to the 8th grade band for their Excellent performance at the Los Osos band festival on Saturday March 9, 2019. They performed well on the stage and that continued into the sight reading room.

In the sight reading room, we were given music that we have never seen before. After getting to chat about it for 4 minutes, the students performed the piece for another music judge. He proceeded to compliment us on the task. They scored an Excellent from this judge as well.

Thank you parents!

Thank you parents for being a part of the day. Thank you to the parent chaperones for helping us move around the many locations. Thank you parents that attended and were a great audience. Thank you to the parents that supported us with water donations.

Congrats 7th grade!

Congratulations to the 7th grade band who scored an “Excellent” on their Festival on March 6. Out of three judges, one of them scored us a “Superior” and the other two “Excellent”. They students were complemented on their performance in the clinic room following their performance.

The judges praised the students on how professionally they were dressed and how well they were behaved during the performance.

Thank you parents!

Thank you parents that made sure your child had all their clothes, materials, and lunch. Thank you parents that donated water. Thank you parents that drove out to be a part of our audience.
