March is Music in Your Schools Month!   Consider donating to our vocal music department to help pay for our new piano.  We recently purchased a Yamaha from Foster’s music.  The school paid $2500.00 and we are trying to raise $3000.00 by June.  Any amount you would like to contribute would be greatly appreciated.  Please contribute in the main office and let them know it is for the piano fund.  We will place your name on the keyboard of donors.  If you have any questions see or call Dean Wiese.
