I had the opportunity this morning to observe Mrs. Klauzer and the High School Chorus in preparation for the Winter Concert. The music emanating from the Chorus Room was as beautiful and it was moving. If you are planning on joining us on December 8th for the HS/JH Winter Concert you are in for a real treat. Truly incredible talent from our music students!

The Freshman Health class is currently engaged in a study of Social Marketing Norms.
