Community Spotlight

Music education is an essential component of educating the whole child. Our music programs strive to introduce a variety of art forms for students to explore. Students are encouraged to express their creativity and engage their minds under the direction of Mr. and Mrs. Sensor. We are honored to be the recipients of this prestigious award. We truly appreciate the support we have received from our school community to make this goal a reality for our students.

Best Communities for Music Education-A National Music Education Recognition Program

Now in its 21st year, the Best Communities for Music Education (district level) and the SupportMusic Merit Award (school level) offers national recognition and visibility for school music programs, and honors the efforts of educators, administrators, students and community music education champions who share in the common goal to ensure access to music for all students as part of the curriculum.
