One thing in particular – the ability to go see live music! Mr. Kmidowski and Mr. Davis want to help rebalance that scale by inviting you all to join us during lunch TUESDAYS to watch a live music concert on the big screen. We will be choosing our content thanks to the school’s new subscription to QWEST TV, which features Jazz, Blues, World, R&B, and Soul music concerts and documentaries. 

The featured concert for Tuesday 11/17 – THE GROOVE COLLECTIVE

So get your eats, bring ‘em to the Library Annex, and come groove with us!


***Advisors, please check your mailboxes for some cookies for you and your advisees from Student Council to celebrate the end of trimester 1. Also since Thanksgiving is around the corner, we have put thank you cards in there as well. We encourage everyone to take 5 minutes to write a little thank you card to someone who has been there for you. Thanks, Student Council!

One Heidi Coppa was spotted cleaning up others’ trash on the English hallway. Was this an act of PASSION for keeping our shared space tidy? Was it an expression of KINDNESS toward others? Or was it RESPECT for our school facility? Whatever her motivation, Heidi Coppa is one awesome cat.

Addie Krug demonstrated KINDNESS and RESPECT when she thanked a teacher. Thank YOU, Addie, for your thoughtfulness.



***Join us for the premier of LIVE MUSIC TUESDAYS
