The fact that the district has been named a Best Community for Music Education was clearly on display during the past few weeks. The musical groups at the secondary and intermediate schools in the district welcomed spring and showcased their outstanding talents in Spring Festivals of the Arts for the Board of Education, administrators, families, staff and community members.

The four concerts — FHS Choral and Instrumental, Dodd and Atkinson— were all held on separate days in the Performing Arts Center located in the high school. The festivals featured each school’s music teachers leading their students through harmonious and riveting performances of song and dance, including jazz, mariachi and step. Artwork by students from each school was also on diplay in the lobby of the high school.

The Spring Festivals of the Arts highlighted the outstanding musical and artistic talents of the students and the level of visual- and performing arts instruction and enrichment across the district.
