F.A.M.E. Invites you!
The Fine Arts and Music Enhancers (Fine Arts and Music Enhancers.) group invites all interested parents in the district to join us. F.A.M.E. helps the K-12 students in the district through a fruit, meat and cheese fundraiser, serving at intermissions during musicals and plays, handing out roses to seniors at fine arts events, and assisting at solo contests, among other activities.
With the fundraiser money, we purchase special items requested by teachers in K-12 art and music, industrial arts and drama. The group recently reorganized into subcommittees of Art/Industrial Arts, Drama, Band and Choir/General Music. This way, parents can join F.A.M.E., but focus on the areas in which their children are involved.
On Saturday, January 25 Ellie Wichhart, clarinet and Hannah Raim, trumpet were selected to play in the SEIBA High School Honor Band. Cooper Horning, a junior, on trumpet and Colton Kurtz, a sophomore, on guitar were selected to participate in the High School Honor Jazz Band.
