All-City Band Concert

by Colby Birkbeck ’16

I had the opportunity this past Winter to see first and second-year students in the Sherwood Heights Elementary band perform their first concert of the year. Since then, they had another concert, the All-City Band Concert at Edward Little High School on March 22, 2016. The bleachers were packed and the students were anxious, though once they started playing, I couldn’t help but focus on the incredible sound improvement the students have made. In just four months of practicing every Wednesday afternoon, the performance was much more cohesive resulting in a well-rehearsed show.  The participation from the students and the band directors was phenomenal; it was definitely a treat and an absolute pleasure to attend both shows.

By Shayna Barnhard, ’15

In my last article, I mentioned how, in 7th grade, I was introduced to one of my now favorite book characters, Tintin, through the movie that came out in 2011.The director and producer Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson will now be making a second Tintin movie.

Before I begin, I just wanted to say that I didn’t talk much about the first movie in my article, but the first movie was awesome!  The CGI in the film was amazing.  Once I started reading the books, I realized there were so many references to the books in just the beginning credits.  For example, on the train dashboard, surrounding the name of the person is the names of the all the places Tintin travels to in the books; China, San Theodoro, Syldavia, the Moon, etc.  There’s so many other references but I won’t spoil anymore from the movie.  Let’s see if you can spot them.

   Dashidondokova went to Aginskoye Okrug Gymnazium, her school back home. In Russia, students finish high school in 11th grade. Classes there are 45 minutes long and students usually have six classes a day.  At her old school, they didn’t have any art classes, only “serious stuff,” as Dashidondokova likes to call it. First to eighth grade students wear maroon uniforms, and ninth to eleventh grade students wear black uniforms.

On Oct. 26, the Edward Little High School seniors hosted a costume party at the American Legion on Washington Street to raise money for their class. Money raised by the class goes to things like the senior trip and banquet.

I was there at the party, and it was a success in terms of attendance. There were various costumes, some including a “cereal” killer, an undead escort, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and many more.
