Congratulations to all members of the jazz band as they completed their MPA performance. They received a superior rating from all three judges. This rating is a testament to the hard work and diligence in these amazing students that I get to enjoy everyday in the classroom. It is truly an honor and a privilege to work with these awesome young men and women. Thank you for everything you do for the school and music program, and, most importantly, for adding so much pride and joy to my life. Congratulations!!!
