Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!
In honor of today being our “final concert” that we never got to have, I would like to recognize the following students who would’ve received awards at our Awards Ceremony. ALL 2019-2020 FDHS orchestra students would have received a pin, letter, etc. for participation. We will have a make-up award ceremony around the same time as the make-up graduation, so all 2019-2020 orchestra students can attend to receive their awards in person.
Most Outstanding – the student who demonstrated the most dedication to not only the FDHS orchestra program, but their own personal improvement as a musician.
Most Improved – the student who demonstrated the most improvement from the beginning to the “end” of the school year.
100% Award – the student(s) who always demonstrated 100% effort in orchestra both in and outside of the orchestra classroom.

Hello: Please be aware that after much debate and discussion, we came to the difficult decision to cancel the band and orchestra concert this evening. This was not mandated by the district, but was instead decided for the safety of the students and audience members. We have numerous students absent from school today due to illness, and have watched as other athletic and arts events have been cancelled across the state. We were expecting a large audience of over 300 this evening, and did not feel it would be a safe atmosphere. We are looking to either live-stream or re-schedule the concert after we know more about any possible school cancellations. Thank you.
