Thank you!

Thank you to everyone that donated food for the Wayzata luncheon and for our Band Moms that organized and served our students.

The Wayzata Concert exchange was a huge success. The afternoon spent working with the Wayzata Band and Dr. Krubsack was truly inspiring!

Being able to perform, hear Dr. Krubsack speak, listen their All-State Marimba player, receive a clinic from Dr. Krubsack and Mr. Krubsack and play music together and separately was a successful music jammed afternoon!

Congratulations to all on a job well done!

Mrs. Lato & Mr. Krubsack
