A Message from Mr. Weimer and Ms. Steen:

Thank you to all who joined us for our first annual outdoor “drive-in” virtual concert! This was so much work for all involved, and so rewarding to see it all finally come together! Since we are not operating in a normal school year, Ms. Steen, Mr. Tramel and Mr. Weimer wanted to create a way to showcase the students’ hard work while still abiding by all guidelines and regulations. This was a monumental challenge for students and teachers. We all enjoyed learning new skills through recording and editing all the musicians! We have discovered many new exciting potentials for future performances through this process. It meant so much to us that parents, students and staff were so enthusiastic about celebrating each other through this memorable concert!

We hope you have a joyful holiday!

Mr. Weimer and Ms. Steen
