Superintendent Report: May, 3 2021
Congratulations to our HS Choir:
We took 3 choirs to state contest on April 8th… treble, mixed, & tenor/bass.
All 3 choirs received the highest rating you can receive in both stage competition and sight-
reading. We will be bringing home a sweepstakes plaque and will get an extra medal called
the accent award since we had 3 choirs receive all superiors. Attached is a picture of the
Sweepstakes Choir from Pryor HS!
The HS Choir took 22 students to Enid as well, for state solo/ensemble contest. They had 7
solos and 4 large ensembles advance to this level from district.
All 4 large ensembles made 1s (superior). One of the judges commented that our ensembles
“made her day.” Another judge said one of our ensembles was the best she’d heard in 3
days. These students got some very high praise today.
6 solos made 1s (superior)…
1 solo made a 2 (excellent)…
Congratulations to the HS Choir Program and thank you all so much for your support of

Congratulations to Lincoln Elementary and Jefferson Elementary for being selected as State Schools of Character by the Character.org organization. This is their second year to be recognized for this honor, and they will now be evaluated for the chance to be recognized as National Schools of Character.
