Sunset High School will once again be filled with the sound and spectacle of Pacific Northwest marching bands during the 32sd Annual Sunset Classic, hosted by SHS’s competitive marching band, Sunset Apollo Marching Band and Auxiliary (SAMBA), with volunteers from SAMBA and the Northwest Association for Performing Arts (NWAPA). Ten bands from Oregon and Washington, including SAMBA, will perform and compete for trophies in categories such as music, visuals and general effects.

The Sunset Classic is the premier fundraising event to support all group programs at SHS throughout the year. Under the direction of Greg Hall, Group Director, Sunset enjoys one of the best group programs in the Pacific Northwest. Students are offered a wide variety of musical alternatives, including a marching band and color guard, jazz band, funk band, and symphony band.

SAMBA strives to keep the programs accessible to all interested students, regardless of their ability to pay. It takes over $ 100,000 a year to support the Sunset High School group and color guard programs. The school district cannot fund these activities. Without the support of the community, these opportunities for participation and leadership would disappear.

SAMBA could not exist without the support of the community, volunteers and brilliant students. The group and the color guard thank all the volunteers, guests and groups who will participate in the Sunset Classic. SAMBA also thanks those who donate their cans and bottles, the poster sponsors and all the other supporters of the group and the color guard. If you cannot participate but would like to donate, visit the donation page on the SAMBA website. For any questions, send an email to [email protected].

Tumwater Middle School launches drama program

The Beaverton Education Foundation (BEF) hosted a flash fundraiser to provide seed money for Tumwater Takes the Stage, an effort to start a theater and drama program for our new school.

The initial project raised $ 3,500 in one month, with matching funds from BEF, to launch the program. BEF is able to provide these seed and matching funds with contributions from our community throughout the year. Our donation portal is a great way to continue to support Tumwater Middle School and the 54 schools in the district. This gives BEF the flexibility to allocate funds to schools and projects that need it most!

Due to Covid-19 concerns, TMS Theater’s first year will host two productions, but they are planning three each year in the future: a traditional play, a one-act festival and a musical. Ticket sales for these performances will fund the program the following year, so come see them!
