Josh Avery (viola), Lilia Chang (violin), Sara Kawai (Harp) and Hannah Levine (String Bass) have been selected to participate in the 2014 NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles, which represent the top performing high school musicians in the United States.  
Open Campus Policy Change
Starting in September, juniors and seniors will have open campus 
Read Mr. Parker's letter for the full policy
privileges. After arriving at school, they may leave campus during any free block. As long as they are in class on time, there will be no penalty. Of course, if a student is late there is a penalty. I will review this policy with seniors and juniors at the first class meetings in September.  Open campus is a privilege and not a right and can be taken away at any time if deemed necessary.
