Sunday April 30th
34400 Utica Rd.
On December 3, 2016, Anthony Mastronardi, a junior at Dakota High School and a defenseman on the Dakota Varsity Hockey team, collided headfirst into the boards and suffered a serious spinal cord injury. Anthony has been working hard every day at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM). His faith, determination, and positive attitude is extremely inspiring and he has touched all those involved in his care, as well as everyone in the hockey community. All proceeds from this event will go to Anthony and his family to ensure he has all the equipment necessary to come home and continue his therapy!
A message from Mr. Abend
Attached are two general maintenance sheets for woodwind and brass instruments. This is something that often gets neglected by our students. Please encourage them to take care of their instrument properly whether it is a school instrument or personally owned. If you read the attached sheets you will probably find that your student does not have the proper oil, grease, etc to be able to care for their instrument. A trip to the local music store and a few bucks can take care of this issue.
