The high school band, performed several pieces they performed at both District Music Competition and RPAC music including “The Great Steamboat Race” where the percussionists used gallon milk jugs, halfway filled with water to mimic a boat sailing through water.
In a night filled with entertainment, the 5-12 choir/band concert could be categorized as a success. The night brought in many community members from both Palisade and Wauneta.

On Monday, April 24, the Wauneta-Palisade third and fourth grade classes ventured down to Krotter Park in Palisade to plant a Catalpa tree in honor of Arbor Day. The tree was purchased by the Village of Palisade, to replace a memorial for Geraldine Smith that was damaged at the park. The tree-planting ceremony began with a lesson on the history of Arbor Day by Amy Seiler with the Nebraska Forest Service. Seiler told the students of the importance of caring for and planting trees for their generation.
Four superior ratings and five excellent rating were awarded to Wauneta-Palisade band and music students Friday at the district music competition in Imperial.
