Steller Sends Three Students to the All-State Band and Orchestra, Again!!

The results from the All-State Band and Orchestra were released last Friday.  Three students, who are currently enrolled in the Steller band, were accepted.  They are Sebastien Libbrecht on trumpet; Xavier Libbrecht on bassoon; and Griffin Lindsay on French horn. “These students went through very competitive auditions”, said Mr. Toba, the band director. “Sebastien has already made the All-State in his freshman and sophomore years, so this is his third year in row, which is accomplished by only a few students.”  “Xavier and Griffin are only freshmen, so they beat a lot of upperclass men in the auditions. Xavier and Griffin have a promising future ahead in high school band”, said, Mr. Toba.  In addition, Sebasiten has earned the right to participate in the All-State Orchestra wind section as well.  “These All-Staters are role models not only for our younger students, but also high school students”, said Mr. Toba.  “I can not be more proud of these All-Staters.”  The All-State Band and Orchestra will rehearse at the Chugiak High School, from Thursday, November 15th through Saturday, the 17th. The All-State Gala Concert will be on Saturday, November 17th at the West High School, at 6 p.m. Admission is 10 dollars for adults, 5 dollars for students.  Public is invited.

KTHS Dog Wash & Grooming Fundraiser

It’s that time again. The KTHS Vet Assisting program is hosting their dog wash to raise funds for their class activities and their HOSA competitive team. We will have 4 this year, one per quarter.

This year, we will continue our tradition of the overnight field trip to the Sea Life Center and the Wildlife Conservation Center. Our program has grown, so we will be taking two advanced classes instead of one this year.  We also are raising funds to send our competitive team to compete in the Veterinary Science Competition again this year. Last year our program took state champions and we hope for a repeat this year. Our chapter is growing and we will have 13 competing this year versus only 2 last year.

Please see the attached flyer for prices, offered services, and times.  It is by walk in only! The wait may be long, but our students will try to make it worth your while. We will offer bath, brush, blow dry, teeth brushing, ear cleaning, toe nail trims and anal gland expression. Our students do not learn full grooming, so we cannot do haircuts.  Please make sure to bring your pets Rabies certificate with you.

Our students can’t wait to work with your pet. Cats are also welcome, but it does become a bit stressful for them with all of the dogs.  GroomingFundraiser-flyer
