Concert Choir Performs at Group Contest
The High School Concert Choir performed the two pieces they sang at Large Group Contest in Sherburn. "How Can I Keep From Singing", arranged by Jay Althouse and "And the Night Shall Be Filled With Music" by Greg Gilpin. They not only received three Excellences at Contest, but a lot of great advice and tips from the clinician. It was a neat event. The Jr High Choir sang "Lamb of God What Wondrous Love" By Gabriel Faure, arranged by Allan Robert Petker and "On Top of the World" a popular song performed by Imagine Dragons. Everyone worked very hard in the short amount of time we had since the last concert and they are hard at it again preparing for the spring concert, which is on May 19th.

Butterfield Elementary Performs Disney's Alice in Wonderland
The elementary students (k-6) performed Disney's Alice in Wonderland, the youth musical on Monday evening the 13th of April at 7:00pm. The plot of the play followed the court room scene of Alice in Wonderland. The 5th grade took over the main cast: Alice was played by Jaelyn Haler, the White Rabbit was McKenna Steinbrink, The Queen & King of Hearts were played by Mahryn Dougherty & Christian Phengduangdeth, Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum were played by Maritza Rodriguez & Valeria Morale, the Caterpillar was played by Mackenzie Christensen, the Mad Hatter & the March Hare were played by Raesha Fast & Justin Xaysongkham, the Chesire Cat was played by Dylan Keldenich, the Rose was played by Victoria Navarette, and the guard card was played by Dustin Wagner. The 6th grade took the place of the Jury and the 4th grade split up, half of them playing cards and half of them playing flowers. The rest of the elementary (k-3) played cards of the Queen of Hearts and backed up the 4-6 by singing their hearts, "diamonds, spades, or clubs" out! We sang songs including, "I'm Late!", "Painting the Roses Red" , "A Very Merry Unbirthday" and many more!
