Thank you to all of our parents who volunteered to be chaperones for our trip to Pigeon Forge. You are the best!! Unfortunately, we are only allowed 8 chaperones. After much discussion, we have selected 8 and have e-mailed them for their confirmation. We wish we could have taken more, but that wasn't an option. Thanks again.

Congratulations to the Jazz Band on an excellent performance at the State Jazz Festival. I know it wasn't the Division I we all wanted, but I am more than pleased with our Division II performance considering we were missing four key players and had two sick members.
