Heritage Festival Congratulations

Please welcome home and congratulate our 36 students who traveled to Hollywood this past weekend.  We had a wonderful time seeing the sights and spending time together.  The students were punctual and well behaved.  Special thanks to Patsy Adlam, Melissa Dietz, and Brian and Dawna Coote for all of their work as chaperones.  It was truly a pleasant experience.


Our four ensembles (Colorguard, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Percussion) were all honored with Silver Ratings for their performances.  Additionally, we received the Instrumental Sweepstakes Award for overall high scores at the festival for instrumental ensembles.  Our Concert Band finished with an overall 2nd place at the festival. The best surprise of all was receiving the Spirit of Hollywood award, given by the Heritage Festival staff to just one school whom they feel embodies courtesy, grace, professionalism, and enthusiasm.  This recognition capped off the experience for us.  Despite losing a number of musicians after grade check and being stranded on the highway for 2.5 hours we persevered to have a great time and adapt musically on stage!  Thanks everyone,


Mr. Hartgrove
