A Salute to Teachers

Mr. Larsen, our Music teacher, will be getting honored and recognized at the SBCEO Salute to Teachers Awards ceremony as the “Performing Arts Teacher of the Year” on Saturday, November 5th at the Lobero Theatre. Our 5-6th grade Band students will also be performing in his honor.
