Kudos and a BIG THANK YOU to Mandy West for playing flute so beautifully when she accompanied the choir at UIL!

Kudos to Mariah Faust, April Kinney, and Victoria Reyes for your hard work, creativity, and the sacrifices you have made for our students in the Willy Wonka, Jr. production. It has been such a pleasure to watch and learn from all of you! I'm SO EXCITED to see the musical on April 13th!
