Lisbon Band Concert Review by Meghan Cooley

The 5-12 grade concert was on Tuesday 28. It started at 7:00pm and went to around 8:00pm. The fifth graders played four tunes, sixth graders played two, 7-8 and 9-12 both played two. Our band director was Rian Swedean.

We have two interviews one from a 6th Grade percussion player, and one from a anonymous viewer.

Here is Quinn Felderman:

Q: What is five words to describe the band concert?

A: We could have done better.

Q: Why do think that?

A: We hit more than a few wrong notes, but overall it was not bad. And the songs were all a little challenging.

And this is our anonymous viewer:

Q: What was your opinion on the concert?

A: Well, I thought it was good. My favorite song was the Midnight Patrol, played by the sixth graders. It sounded like marching.

Lisbon Lunch Review: By Luke Czarnecki

Today's lunch was green eggs and ham, chili crispitos, and vegetables.

I'd give this lunch an 8/10 because the food was good, but not as good as it could be. The green eggs and ham was scrambled eggs with “ham” in it. It was flavorless. I ate a little bit of it until somebody flicked them at me. The eggs were OK, though. The chili crispitos, I heard, were not as good as the other times they served it. I heard that they were as hard as a rock. And as for the vegetables, they were good, but were doused in water. I got a tray of 75%water and 25% vegetables. They were good, too. Of all the bad things I said, lunch was good this week, and that is all I have.
