Hopefully, everyone had a restful break. This week we have State Solo & Ensemble and State Jazz MPA at American Heritage School. Auxiliary also has their dress rehearsals this week in preparation for their State MPA, which is next week.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Poppin’ Popcorn Fundraiser. The fundraiser was a success! Also, thank you to all of our volunteers who have been helping out with the Stroller Rental for the County Fair. Our drumline will be performing at the fair this Friday.
Over the break our Varsity Guard and Dance Team both competed in competition. Our Varsity Guard won 3rd place in Class AA at the FFCC Competition on Saturday, March 12th. Our Dance Team earned an Elite High Gold rating and the Judges’ Award with their Lyrical routine and a Platinum rating, 3rd place, and the Choreography Award with their Contemporary routine. Congratulations to both teams! We’re so proud of all of you and look forward to seeing your performances at State!
