Attention parents of 6th grade girls:

Girls on the Run is a nationally successful character development program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. The programs meet twice per week and combine age-appropriate character development lessons with running games. The program uses exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to provide young girls with the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years. The program is non-competitive, but every girl is encouraged to try her best.

This year, we will have a Girls on the Run club after school for 12-15 sixth grade girls. We will be sending home information with your sixth grader that explains more about the program. Our program will start the week of September 12 and meets for 10 to 12 weeks on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 – 4:45 pm., culminating in a 5K downtown on November 19. Applications will be accepted from Aug 22 9 am until August 29 at 6 pm, then we will hold a random lottery to chose the 15 girls participating. Please talk with your daughter to see if she is interested. The only specification is that they can only miss up to three practices, so please look at your schedule to see if they have time to participate.

More information can also be found at or you can contact Stephanie O’Hara at


Attention all string parents,

Welcome to a new and exciting year of strings.  We are asking that all violin and viola players bring their instruments beginning Wednesday, August 17.  Fifth and seventh grade students will store their instruments in Mrs. Denney’s room and sixth and eighth grade students will store their instruments in Mrs. Coomer’s room.  All cello and bass players are welcome to use school-owned instruments.  There is no reason to transport the instruments back and forth for every music class.  If, however, your instrument at home requires tuning or tapes, please know that you can bring it in any day and we will take care of it that same day.

Grades 6-8 music schedule:

Violins: T/H/F

Viola, Cello, Bass: M/W/H

All 5th grade students have music on Tuesday and Friday.  The third day is determined by their individual teacher (look on schedule)

Attached is a link to an information sheet.  At your earliest convenience, please take a moment to fill this out.

It’s time to sell Chip Wheelies for WSMA! WSMA (Wyoming School Music Association) supports the music programs in our schools from Kindergarten through High School.  If you have an hour or two to volunteer, we can use your help.  WSMA sells Graeter’s Chip Wheelies at home football games and all the school concerts.  These ice cream sandwiches are a huge favorite with the kids (and adults).  It’s easy!!  We handle the ordering and delivery of Chip Wheelies to a special freezer at the High School.  We’ll supply you with signage, a cash box, and instructions.  It’s a short time commitment. If you have younger kids who want to attend the football game, you’ll have a good excuse for being there.  Concert sales only take about an hour of time.  If you are interested in volunteering, the link is:
