6th Grade Trip to UNR
Friday, February 12, 2016 During the school day!
Solo & Ensemble Festival
Saturday, February 20th *optional event*
Location: Depoali Middle School
-Explanation: This is a festival where students play solos or small group pieces for a judge and then they receive a rating and comments to improve their playing. Students receive extra credit and have a great time at the event. The whole district comes to Depoali for this event, so even if students don't want to play they can still volunteer to help run the event.
