The Hay Springs music department would like to thank everyone who supported their music trip to Omaha this past weekend. Whether through fund raising or the school for transportation, or just words of encouragement. We had a great time! We went and saw the musical “Wicked”, spent an afternoon at the zoo, went to the Durham Museum, attended a baseball game at Werner park (where the chasers won!!), performed at 2 clinics and wrapped up our time out with a little shopping. Thank you especially to Jamie Bell, Nicole Toof, Jim Varvel, and Tony and Amy Hindman for being our sponsors-couldn’t have done it without you!
Attached you will find the results of District Music Contest held in Alliance on Wednesday, April 20th. It was a very successful day for the Hay Springs music students! We also had 2 outstanding performers, Sam Hindman on his tenor sax solo and Kaden Langford on his vocal solo. If you see any of these students, make sure to congratulate them for all their hard work!
Today Mr. Hagge was a substitute teacher for Mrs. Varvel. Even though he is posing here with a guitar it is our understanding that he ended up reading to the PreK class instead! Perhaps Mr. Hagge needs to take more music lessons to learn to play that guitar!
