What a fantastic whirlwind adventure we’ve had the past few days. The Holiday Concert was wonderful as always and even included a visit from North Kitsap Fire and Rescue with Santa Clause in tow. The music was lovely. Mr. Haag and the musicians never fail to impress.
We simply can’t extend our gratitude sufficiently to this amazing community. Thanks to the generous support of so many local businesses, and individuals, we were able to raise approximately $6,000 at our Wish Upon a Star Big Band Swing Gala to offset costs for our students’ and chaperones’ trip to Disneyland.
Thanks to the efforts of Heather Knapp, our grant writer, we also received a generous grant from The Port Gamble S’klallam Tribe in the amount of $1,200. We raise our hands in thanks to The Port Gamble S’klallam Tribe for their support.
Following their community’s lead our own students, representing all grades, showed up to play their instruments in the rain and raised $300 at Central Market in Poulsbo.
Please stop by and support these local businesses and extend our appreciation with your holiday shopping.
