We hope that students and families are enjoying the extended weekend and some time together!
KSHSAA State Music Festival: Congratulations to the Blue Valley West Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band on their successful performances at the KSHSAA State Large Group Music Festival this past week! Both ensembles received top ratings of I (Outstanding) from the three judges for overall I ratings (the first time that both bands accomplished this feat since 2013.) Both bands also had the opportunity to work with Dr. Joe Parisi from UMKC in a clinic following their performance. While we continually work to grow the quality and variety of our musical performances, this is certainly a moment to celebrate our ensembles returning to making music together at a level worthy of recognition amongst our peers! Thank you all our students for your work over the past couple of months!
