Celebrations

On Saturday, our selected All-District musicians performed in their respective East-Central KMEA Honor Ensembles. The rehearsals and performances were a real treat to hear. And, students selected who performed in the concert are now eligible to audition for seating as all-state musicians! Best wishes, Ravens! Go practice!!

Also on Saturday, the district recognized Mrs. Jena McElwain as our ECKMEA Outstanding Middle-Level Teacher of the Year! Mrs. McElwain is the director of bands at Prairie Trail Middle School in our ONW attendance area. Many Ravens in the band here at ONW know firsthand how deserving this award is as they are PRT alums. Way to go Mrs. McElwain! Proud to know you!!
