Honor Club travels to SMC
This week our Honor Club traveled to visit Southwestern Michigan College in Dowagiac. Our students were able to tour the campus and see everything that SMC has to offer.
7th and 8th grade students can qualify to be part of Honor Club by maintaining a 3.0 or higher GPA. Honor Club has the opportunity to tour college campuses and participate in fun activities.
Thank you to SMC for hosting our students.
Congratulations to our Solo and Ensemble Participants!
On Saturday, April 23rd, we had several students participate in MSBOA's Middle School Solo and Ensemble Festival. For this event, students prepared either a solo or a small ensemble (duet, trio, etc.) and they did this almost completely on their own. They then traveled to Southwest Michigan College and performed for a judge specific to their instrument. They received feedback as well as a final rating/grade (very similar to concert band festival). A Division I is considered superior, a Division II is excellent, Division III is good, a IV is fair and a V is poor (we rarely see IV's or V's).
Be sure to congratulate the following students on their phenomenal performances! They not only performed well, but they represented Coloma with incredible professionalism and pride :)
Sophia Ragsdale, Zoey Rickman, Nora Biondo (trio)
Sophia Ragsdale, Zoey Rickman (duet)
