We are hosting a Veterans Day Celebration on Monday Nov. 12th at 8:30 a.m. starting outside at the flagpole. (Temperatures are predicted to be in the teens so have your student bundle-up!)  We will begin with the flag-raising, an Honor Guard 21-gun salute and taps. Then there will be a ceremony in the Large Gym with student and guest speakers, honored guest introductions, as well as band, choir and orchestra performances. Families are welcome to attend, and are requested to extend the invitation to all military family members and friends to join us as honored guests.

6th Graders to Orchestra Hall @ Minnesota Orchestra Hall
Nov 30 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The entire 6th grade is going to Orchestra Hall to see “Rhythm Moves Me”. Students will be treated to the award winning Minnesota Orchestra performing:  Johann Strauss “Radetzky March”, Ludwig van Beethoven “Symphony No. 7 Movement 2” and Arturo Marquez “Danzon No. 2”.

The performance is geared toward students this age and includes the conductor, Akiko Fujimoto, talking about rhythm in music, how it is used in these songs and to impact us as the listener to dance, march, swing, sway and inspire.
