Bill Roth, chairman of West Catholic's Board of Directors, and his wife Colleen have been actively involved in the West Catholic community for many years, and now they could use our help! Bill had a brain aneurysm rupture while on spring break with his family and remains in the ICU in Sarasota, Florida. They need your prayers! It will be a long road to recovery but we are confident God is listening! If you feel moved to show your support financially, visit the Roth Family Emergency Support GoFundMe page.

This year's MSBOA Solo & Ensemble competition may have looked a little different—performances were recorded and submitted virtually—but our students were still able to put together some amazing performances. Congratulations to our flute trio (Andrea Bolt, Bridget Donovan & Hailey Siwek) and trombone duet (Brady Patterson & Jacob North) for earning MSBOA medals at the state level!

Special congratulations to Juliana Bolinger for her top rating of 1 (alto sax solo) and for being selected as an Outstanding Soloist with her nearly perfect score in the Proficiency 1 scoring rubric. This is an honor that typically only 100 members in the entire state get to enjoy. In fact, only 18 students in West Michigan were selected. Juliana joins a prestigious list of recent WC students to receive this rare and coveted honor: Maggie Camp (alto sax), Matt DiCosola (alto sax), Bridget Eshlemen (flute/piano), Madeline Mitchell (trombone) and Alec Ockaskis (percussion).

This is a change from what was previously communicated. Please be aware that we will not have school on Good Friday - Friday, April 2.

The following week is Spring Break. We look forward to seeing students again on Monday, April 12.
