Bulldog Band Wins Sweepstakes

Congratulations to the Bulldog Band on earning its second Sweepstakes Award ever! The Bulldog Band earned all ones in the concert contest and all ones in the sight reading contest. These two ratings, plus the one earned in the marching contest, qualified the band for the Sweepstakes trophy. Also the Bulldog Band was one of only three bands in our region to receive all ones in concert and sight reading. Below is a video of the Bulldog Band’s performance.

The new High School construction project is moving forward. While the much needed rain slowed down some of the concrete work, this past week the foundation was poured for the classroom area.
