Clinic: Wednesday March 23 - 4PM in the George A. Quinlan Sr. Recital Hall  - Central High School Leadership Clinic by Dr. Menghini - A great opportunity for observation hours.

To give you a little background about Central High School, they are a magnet college prep public school in North Philadelphia. Central is the second oldest high school in the country, first chartered in 1836. They are one of the top academic schools in the state and they have an outstanding music program. 120 band, choir, and orchestra students will represent their school on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, March 23, Mr. Yakas has arranged a performance by the University of Nebraska - Lincoln Percussion Ensemble. They will be performing at 7:30 PM in the George A. Quinlan Sr. Recital Hall.

The building will be closed this weekend for Spring Break. Classes do not meet on Friday and staff does not report to work. The building will reopen on Monday morning at 7AM.

Please join me in thanking the following students for their hard work this past week.  They spent a large portion of their break cleaning our buildings. Thank you!
