We are looking for parents to join our Parents of the Arts. There are many important activities that need parent support, from concerts and art shows to scholarships and awards. Whether you can offer help for a single event or would like to be part of the big picture, we need your help.
This Thursday, June 15th, at 7pm, we will be meeting in the HS Chorus Room to get organized. We’d like you to come and join us at that time.

We’ve posted our concert videos , beginning with events from February, on Sway.
