Looking Back

This past week was a great start to our Spring semester. Each ensemble and performance group had great rehearsals in getting back into performance mode after a two week break. Thank you to each member who participated in our Blue Darter Pride Celebration at Kit Land Nelson Park. This was an awesome evening for our school and community to recognize the State Championship that was earned by our Blue Darter Football Team!
