On March 14th, Students from Wind Ensemble and Orchestra boarded two buses at the high school and traveled to a retreat site in Estacada. The location of the retreat was absolutely beautiful and featured a creek, indoor basketball court, an outdoor soccer field, two outdoor sand volleyball courts, a playground and horseshoes. About nine hours, beginning Friday night and continuing all day Saturday, were spent rehearsing music and preparing for our upcoming concerts and festivals. Saturday night, the students put on impromptu skits that some of our parents judged. It was very funny!
