High School Music Trip

PAO gives $56,000 to school board.

At the Kohler School District Board of Director’s meeting on May 3, 2021, our PAO President Jess Childs gave the school board a HUGE check totaling $56,000 for the upcoming high school music trip. We are very grateful for all the generous donations and support we have received over the last three years, especially during the pandemic. Our biannual music trips truly make important, life-long impressions on Kohler’s music students. Thank you!
