SENIOR PHOTO OPPORTUNITY – SAVE THE DATE

Again this year, the First Nighters will honor our Performing Arts Seniors by hosting a photo session with Bob Castner. Please save the date of Saturday, May 22nd. Each session will be 15 minutes and take place outside YHS.

Pictures will be available for viewing and purchase on Bob Castner’s website, and each senior will be highlighted on Twitter. Band students, please wear concert black for your photo, hold your instrument, and wear your senior pin (which Ms. Kluga will give to you soon).  

Be on the lookout for an e-mail from the First Nighters on how to sign up for a time. We are so grateful to this parent group for all their support, and especially for our awesome senior class!

SPRING CONCERT – STAY TUNED!

We are in the process of planning the YHS Spring concerts. When we have details of what the concerts will look like, and when/where they will happen, Ms. Kluga will share them here.

Scores will be available in a few weeks…but please don’t allow that number to define your experience. I’ve heard so much improvement in each of you – you have learned how to practice efficiently, meticulously, and have grown as a musician. THAT is the real value of this experience. Be proud!

BAND MOVIE NIGHT A SUCCESS!

It was a beautiful evening for an outdoor movie! On Friday 34 of our band students gathered in the beautiful YHS courtyard to enjoy the film “Soul.”  Ms. Kluga is so thankful for this much-needed social time, and so proud of our students, who were complimented by our custodial staff for being helpful and respectful.

Huge thanks to our awesome Band Officers for their help with the evening’s logistics and for bringing snacks to share. Photos attached.
