Youth Arts Festival

Many of our talented artists have artwork featured at the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey. Artwork will be displayed until Saturday, May 9.


Dear Band Parents,

Due to the many changes in the spring sports schedule and the large number of athletes in our band program, we have selected Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 7:00 P.M. for our final spring concert. I will ask the students to dress in their finest spring wear and we will have a Festival of music that will be a treat for all in attendance!

Musically yours,
