Kimberly Carda

Thank you students and parents for your dedication and perseverence during these difficult and uncertain times.  Know that my thoughts and prayers are with my students and their families every day.  Be smart, be safe.  I pray you and your families stay healthy. 

This year has been one for the record books.....2 marching band competitions canceled, plus Small Group Contest, Large Group Contest & Aberdeen Music Contest wow.  Along with the disappointments have also come opportunities.  It was wonderful to host our own marching band competition, and playing at the SD Bandmasters Association Convention was a memory I will treasure forever.  

To the Class of 2020, my beloved Seniors:  I am so thankful to have had you in class for the last eight years.  I am truly blessed.  You are an extremely talented group of young people who make this world a better place.  When the day comes when we can finally be together, let's celebrate!  Congratulations, Class of 2020!!

We serve the King!  We are Cavaliers!  May God bless you abundantly!

Mrs. Carda
