FHUSD Performing Arts On Display
Since the beginning of November the FHUSD community has benefited from numerous school performances presented by over two hundred students displaying their musical and dance talents and attended by well over a thousand family members and friends. During the first week of November, Mrs. Perkins McDowell Mountain 2nd grade classes performed a musical tribute to Veterans with a moving video tribute to family members who have served in the military. Mrs. Wilson's Dance groups also presented performances that week before two packed houses in the High School gym. During the last week of November, Ms. Laughlin directed the 4th and 5th grade music program featuring both instrumental soloists and class vocal numbers. Last week her middle school bands, made up of over 80 students, entertained another packed house in the Middle School gym. Mrs. Perkins then presented the third grade holiday program for an enthusiastic crowd on Tuesday December 11th. Last night, the High School choral and instrumental groups, including our state championship winning band, concluded the season's festivities with an excellent show at the Fountain Hills Community Center. There were even alumni from both groups joining in on the final sing-a-long. I want to acknowledge the fantastic student participation and talent in our performing arts groups and the commitment of our teachers combined with the overwhelming family and community support. In FHUSD we achieve and celebrate educational excellence as evidenced by recent academic accomplishments but we also strive to foster artistic and expressive opportunities for our students.
