The Jr. High Band had an outstanding Solo and Ensemble event on Tuesday, March 23. Students were able to give live performances to an OMEA certified judge and receive feedback on their performances. The 7th and 8th grade band students had a total of 18 performance events. Students performed extremely well and ended the night with both written feedback and ratings from the judge. The students put a lot of hard work into preparing these performances, with much of it being student-led learning. Of the 18 events, students earned 14 superior ratings and 4 excellent ratings! A very impressive showing.
Thank you to Arcanum Mayor Bonnie Millard, for declaring April 5 to 9 We Are the Majority Week for the Village of Arcanum. The local WATM Drug-Free Awareness Day Walk will be virtual this year. Families in Darke County showed their support by making posters and taking a walk on behalf of being drug, alcohol, and tobacco free on their own since we could not do it collectively at this time. Photos and student speaker videos are currently on the Darke County WATM FB page for all viewers to see.

Looking back to this day in 1969 — It was a Sunday, the U.S. President was Richard Nixon, Pope St. Paul VI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of April, people were listening to Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In by The 5th Dimension on the radio and the movie Guns of the Magnificent Seven was being viewed. Famous people born on this day were Felix Buamgartner and Omar Harfouch. Does that seem like 52 years ago?
