The band concerts were held last Thursday at G. Ray Bodley High School.
Students and the audience members alike got to hear some great music from the students, but also from some special guests.
Composer Sean O’Loughlin wrote a song for the wind ensemble and conducted for them as well. The solo trumpet part in the piece was played by David Bamonte, a member of the Oregon Symphony.
The playing was recorded and will be put on YouTube as a reference for other bands throughout the country to hear.
Rounding out Music In Our Schools Month is the GRB orchestra. It will be performing tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
Students, are you having trouble in a class, and are one of those people that don’t like asking the teacher for help?
Then look no further than the guidance office for a little help in those difficult classes.
Each day, every bell, there will be National Honor Society members in the conference room of the guidance office. This new program called “Make the Grade” was put into action to help students help each other.
So, if you’re a student that needs a little assistance in a class, don’t be shy! NHS members are here to help!
It is time again for the annual spring blood drive. If you haven’t already, see Mr. Thurlow as quickly as possible to sign up.
The date to donate is this Friday in the LGI. Students and faculty are reminded to bring a form of identification and drink lots of water before and after you donate. Be sure to eat a good meal the night before as well!
