The Annual Band vs Choir Dodgeball Deathmatch is quickly approaching, and if you hadn’t heard the Mr. Cone and the NMS Band threw down the gauntlet earlier this week (Video for Reference), so we couldn’t just not respond.:) Hope to see all of you choir beasts there after school Tuesday (3:45 to 5:00) to help defend our current reign as dodgeball champions!!!


Must Watch!

*Try #2! ūüôā

8th graders: Carlie Weaver, Meghan Mansfield, Nicholas Gorden, Mandy Dyson, and Hailey Thompson sang our National Anthem acapella and in 3 part harmony this morning at the 5K. They were outstanding. Great job Choir Beasts! (Sad to say, but it sounds like your definitely ready for High School!) Heres the video!!
