Everyone at NASA thinks that Dr. Weaver’s Mars colony is a joke, because it’s full of average joes instead of astronauts. Their mission? Grow the first eggplant on Mars. As Dr. Weaver takes reports from the quirky colony members under the leadership of the arrogant Commander, the mission starts to seem impossible. But could there be more to the story?

Ankeny Centennial High School and Northview Middle School Students Participate in 36th Perry Band Olympics
On February 20, band students from Ankeny Centennial High School and Northview Middle School participated in the 36th Annual Perry Band Olympics. The Perry Band Olympics are a high school Solo and Ensemble Festival that takes place each year at Perry High School. This festival features over 1,000 students and events from eight different high schools across Central Iowa. This year’s festival used a “virtual” format, in which each student recorded a video of themselves performing their solo or ensemble and then submitted it to be judged. Students receive feedback on their performance, a division rating, and medals are awarded to the top 5 students in each center.
The Ankeny Centennial and Northview programs had 100 students perform in 106 different events this year. They came home with 33 Division I “Superior” Ratings, 31 Medal Winners, the most in Centennial history, and received 2nd Place in Overall Competition!
“I was so impressed with the hard work and preparation that all of the students put into their solos and ensembles this year. Despite all of the challenges and new parameters, they were able to work hard and create outstanding musical performances!” said Scott Hook, Director of Bands at Ankeny Centennial High School.

Within the website, you will have the opportunity to learn about a variety of programs, resources and opportunities available to our students.

Each of these sessions will provide you with tools to help your student select courses that align with their post-secondary plan.
