The Armour (S.D.) School District is known for its strong music program. Roughly 80 percent of the District’s 50 high school students are involved in band, choir or both. Above, K-12 Music Teacher Whitney Wilson directs the girls’ choir. “I try to pick music that I know they will like, but yet that we’ll learn something from,” said Wilson, who insists the music program has a lot to do with student success. “It’s a good break in their day. It gets their creative juices flowing” and helps with math and science concepts. “A lot of times, the kids are like, ‘Why are we learning math?’” The school’s band director, Heather Harnisch, agreed, saying, “I teach fractions like nobody’s business, trying to teach them time signatures.”
