Field Day!

It's that time again! We are currently gathering parent volunteers to help with our 3rd Annual FULL day Field Day on Friday, May 13th. Click on the link below to get in on the fun!

Cardinals Game

The Independence Singing Eagles Choir invites you to Independence Day at the St. Louis Cardinals! Our game this year is Sun., May 1, game time 1:15 pm, against the Washington Nationals. Our Choir will be singing, “Take Me Out To the Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch at this game!

Tickets are now available for the Independence community. Tickets are only $20 for Left Field Pavilion seats, a savings of more than $20 less than the gate price. AND, each ticket comes with a coupon for a free small hot dog & small drink. PLUS, there are two giveaways that day for the kids: a Randal Grichuk kids baseball bat, & a voucher for a free ticket to another game! Proceeds from our ticket sales go to support our Music program at Independence – thanks to all of our Independence parents for your support of our Music program!
