· We were able to hire a music teacher for this year.  Jonathan Madrid is the new teacher, so if you see him throughout the community make sure you welcome him.  He is a young and energetic guy with great plans for the future.  If you currently have band on your schedule from last year, you will keep that same schedule.  If you are interested in taking band, you now have the opportunity to add that to your schedule at registration if you would like!   
· We plan to have cheerleading this year.  We had some students show interest last year and Emily Cash, one of our new teachers will be the cheer advisor!  If you are interested in participating in cheer this year, please email Emily at or myself at
