Bridging the Gap Concert

No one disputes that EskDale has a marvelous music program. In March, people all over the country got to hear the choir during a unique concert that was broadcast over the Internet. You can read more about it on Janille's blog.

The music program also had great success with Solo/Ensemble, with numerous entries making it on to state.

If you want to hear a little music, there will be a recital this Sunday, May 11 at 3 pm (UT).

Successful Winter Carnival

 The 2014 winter carnival was great. Held in Baker Hall, lots of school parents and community members came out to support the local schools. About $2,000 was raised.

Face painting and some prize glasses.

The theme was Year of the Horse.

Don't miss the next school event: Aladdin at EskDale March 13 and 14, starting at 7 pm (NV)/ 8 pm (UT).
