Schoenbar's music night -
a STAR performance.

Tonight was not "just another" Friday night in Ketchikan.
Tonight was a special night that showcased the talent of our
students at Schoenbar, and SO much talent was presented. Our
youth in Ketchikan, those in their early teen years, SHOWN tonight.
Enthusiasm, sparkle, manners, discipline, happy voices, smiles,
peer support - all of this was evident tonight as I looked around
the area. It was evident that "dressing up", which
was also a part of the evening, helped each one to feel special
about themselves and their part in the evening.
What a HUGE undertaking of the music teacher, Mary Kurth, who
has the energy and enthusiasm and 'nerve' to think that students
in their early teen years would enter into this experience ...
and enjoy it.
Not only was the talent presented in groups, but there solos
and ensembles, with a supportive 'crew' standing in the sidelines
cheering for them.
An outstanding dinner was prepared by school personnel, and served
by the young "knights and ladies" of Schoenbar. They
were being oh so careful and cheerful while tending to each and
every detail. The entire 'commons' area was a very special treat.
What a GRAND way to spend a rainy night - inside the beautiful
updated Schoenbar Middle School, enjoying good food, wonderful
music and happy 'kids'.
There was a large crew and effort put forth for tonight's program.
THANK YOU to each of you who participated.
THANK YOU to each of you who volunteered your help.
THANK YOU to each who showed support for the youth and music
program at Schoenbar.
