Thank you to all students and staff who participated in PAPA’s Poetry Out Loud Competition. A special thank you to Ms. Rios and Ms. Padilla for being PAPA judges last month! Take a moment and please congratulate our very own Kenna Flores – class of 2023 – she won 1st runner up in this year’s New Mexico State Poetry Out Loud Competition! Congratulations, Kenna!!!

Congratulations to Public Academy for Performing Arts 6th grade choir students! The choir sang for the District 7 Music Performance Assessment Festival at Volcano Vista High school. They received 1 Division 1 superior rating, 2 division 2 excellent ratings, and a division 2 excellent rating for sight-reading. The students worked hard for these awesome ratings. They earned their scores from a top university and retired choir professionals. We as a community of Artistic Learners should recognize the awesome things our students are doing. Les Chanteuses also deserve congratulations as they are now eligible to compete for State competition! They received 3 division 1 superior ratings for their performance and a Division 1 superior rating for sight-reading! This means all Public Academy for Performing Arts core music classes have received superior and excellent ratings. Our students are exceeding the standards for music and we should be celebrating these great accomplishments! So now let’s keep growing our superior students in music. Good luck to Les Chanteuses State Competition on April 8 and 9! At Sue Cleveland HS in Rio Rancho.

The Dance Department is having AUDITION DAY Thursday, March 31th for any student interested in taking an upper-level dance class. More details will be posted to the Call Board across from the front office!

Please congratulate, Jillian Miller, Manny Barnett, Frank Fagen, Nico Olivas, Nick Baca, Xavier Pecastaing, for achieving a score of Superior at District VII Guitar Music Performance Assessment.
