Woodinville High School named a Grammy Signature School

   The Grammy Foundation has recognized Woodinville High School as a Grammy Signature School.

   Determined on the basis of a scoring system applied by a panel of top music educators and professionals, Woodinville High School is one of 100 high schools from across the country to receive a certificate of recognition based on their high level of commitment to music education.

   "We are proud to be recognized for our program, which uses the arts for their rich potential to captivate and engage students in the process of learning," said Vicki Puckett, Woodinville High School principal.

   "The arts help students be problem-solvers, creative thinkers, and mentally disciplined individuals. This recognition would not be possible without the contribution of our music faculty, Steve Stevens and Mark Adamo," she added.

   Woodinville High School was recognized for their work with their jazz band, band, orchestra, choir, and women's chorus.
