Reedley High has been full of busy Pirates. These last few months of the school year have been anything but relaxing for students.

From prom to Powder Puff, Pirates show their dedication in making the last few months of the year the best ones.

I’m part of the Reedley River Rats and along with my six band mates, play Dixieland Jazz music for audiences throughout California.
