The choirs concert "A Christmas Celebration" featuring violin and drum accompaniment was a fantastic event. The finale featured all choirs combined for a beautiful rendition of "Spirit of the Season." Thanks to all of our students and Mrs. Lewis for their hard work in making it happen. We appreciate the support from all of our parents too!
Our 7th Grade Reading classes were able to listen to an amazing guest speaker today, Dr. Chris Crowe, English Professor at BYU.He is the author of several books, most notably MISSISSIPPI TRIAL, 1955, which won several awards, including the 2003 International Reading Association's Young Adult Novel Award. His nonfiction book, GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER: THE TRUE STORY OF THE EMMETT TILL CASE, was an Jane Addams Honor book. His first children's book, JUST AS GOOD: HOW LARRY DOBY CHANGED AMERICA'S GAME, appeared in 2012. It was a little bit history and writing, it was fantastic!
