Announcements 12-4-14

December Walking Wednesday

A hearty group of 105 students and 18 adults braved the threat of a winter storm and walked to school.  The weather turned out to be no problem with 35 degree temperatures, no additional snow or rain and little wind.  The next walk in January could be way colder.  Let's see who has the drive to keep walking to school year around.  Congratulations to all those who walked!


Full Orchestra is rehearsing this afternoon.

Jazz Band is rehearsing this afternoon at 2, instead of Sr. Band because of the Learning Showcase on Friday.

Students in various 3-4-5-6 chorus's with Mrs Cameron-Musette, Ms. Gelfon and Mr. Mehaffey's guitar class, will be presenting a concert on Monday night at 7 pm, in the big gym. Everyone is invited.

Congratulations to Kayleigh Sweeney, Sam Handy, and Jacob Benware, who auditioned for the High School District Music Festival, last night at BFA. All 3 students were accepted to perform in the Concert Band or Wind Ensemble, which will be rehearsing in March 2015.


Practice today at 3:15.
