New this year, we are adding MyPaymentPlus to our Food Services Program. Students will still receive free breakfast/lunch in our district, this will only be used for extra items if students wish to purchase things such as chips or pop that aren’t included with the free meals. Some of the benefits of the new tool include: - Make payments to your student's cafeteria account - View cafeteria balances anytime - See what your student is purchasing in the cafeteria - Enroll in school activities - Pay for student fees
Yesterday, March 21, our Bel Canto and Honors Choir participated in Festival! Festival is our performance and sight-reading evaluation event where students are judged on their prepared performance and tested on their ability to analyze and perform a piece of music they have never seen before. Both choirs performed EXTREMELY well with the Honors Choir earning a First Division rating and the Bel Canto earning a Second Division rating! The Honors Choir has qualified for the State--Level Choral Festival!
