Dancers Bring Home Perfect Scores Kudos to Mr. Ferguson and Pershing Dance. Our Dance Division recently received two perfect scores of 50 in the District-Wide Dance Montage. All schools have the potential to fall into one of three categories- 1. Proficient- Lowest 2. Accomplished 3. Superior- Highest So, way to go Dancers for scoring as high as possible! Congratulations!
One Day, Four Trophies! Hats off to the Pershing Concert, Symphonic, and Wind Ensemble who represented our school at the Schlitterbahn Soundwaves competition recently.

With the Superior Ratings, each band qualified for the ‘Best In Class’ competition which they both subsequently won. Four trophies in one day – way to go!
