Several bands earn superior ratings at state
Scoring superior ratings were the Bountiful High wind symphony, the Woods Cross High wind ensemble, and the Davis High concert band, symphonic band and wind ensemble.
The Viewmont High symphonic band and the Layton High symphonic band earned excellent ratings.
Donna Croft, district fine arts supervisor, said that qualifying for state is an honor but the fact that all three of the Davis High bands scored superior ratings from all three judges at the festival is praiseworthy.
“This does not happen often,” she said.
Texts to assist parents of preschoolers
To help get children ready for their first year of kindergarten, a free texting service is being offered districtwide to parents and guardians of preschoolers. The “Little Scholars” texts will go out to parents every Monday this summer, suggesting a fun way for parents to teach their child something they will need to know in kindergarten.
The service is provided by Davis Community Learning Center, 210 E. Center St., Clearfield, in partnership with Davis School District.
For more information or to sign up, contact the DCLC at 801-402-8395. The service also is being offered in Spanish.
