For anyone who knows Grace, you know that she is one of the nicest and most hard working students at North! Grace is one of our amazing clarinet players and her work paid off when she earned a spot in the All-Region Band. She is very active in other activities at North and balances band, volleyball, and her studies incredibly well.
Tori is our incredible bass clarinet player. She loves to play, and it shows with her beautiful sound! She adds so much to the ensemble with her playing, but more than that, she can always be found in the Band Hall helping with whatever needs to be done. A little known fact about Tori is that she is among the record holders for funny quotes too...so thank you for always keeping us smiling!
Goodie Bag Helpers
If your child auditioned for All-Region Band, you may have seen them carrying around a bag of goodies on Saturday. Normally, I can manage to prepare all of these myself, but with the increased number of students entered into the process, I enlisted some helpers. Huge thanks to Tori, Arya, Brittney, and Mary Grace for helping me get everything ready for you yesterday! I hope you enjoyed your treats! :)
Goodie Bag Helpers
Ethan got to perform for Ms. Sadler in her classroom this week. He also got some great tips for how to deal with nerves, while filling up the Science lab with his beautiful performance!
Marissa is one of our outstanding 7th grade musicians and is shown here performing for one of our amazing counselors, Mrs. Wight.
Caroline took her snare drum on the road and played for our terrific counseling staff. Ms. Del Valle's son is an All-Region musician and Mrs. Gonzales' daughter Pamela also auditioned on Saturday, so they understand the hard work these students put in to prepare for their performance.
