November Student of the Month
Congratulations to our Senior Dance
Team on a job well done at their first competition in Chicago, Illinois! Members attending were Haylie Bowlby, Kenzie Beery,
Shelby Jolliff, and Micaela Wenning were not only won the three divisions they competed in, but was also awarded "Most Outstanding"
Team! Also, congratulations to Allison Smith who was crowned as well as Grace Etgen--both of whom competed in individual events!
UPDATE: We will be attending DMA Nationals again this
year for those teams that qualify. I will be choosing only a few team
members/teams to attend the competition in Hawaii in 2015 (I will not be taking
all students). Therefore, please plan ahead for around the 3rd week
of July to be
traveling with the team to Nationals
