On May 23rd the 7th and 8th grade Chorus Majors presented their final concert for the year! Our theme was “Time” and we had a wonderful evening sharing our music with the community. If you missed the concert, here is an edited video for you to watch at home. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this concert, and we hope you enjoy the show!
On Tuesday, June 18th during both lunch periods, the 8th grade Chorus Majors will be selling tasty treats to help raise funds for the Wolf Conservation Center (http://www.nywolf.org/). The chorus majors want to HELP KEEP THE WOLVES SINGING and we hope you can join us in our efforts.
Students in 7th grade graphic arts went to Hachette Book Group the publishing group for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. They publish books like “The Twilight Saga” and “This is What Happy Looks Like”. We met with the Creative Director, David Caplan, and Art Directors, Patti Ann Harris and Liz Casal, and Phil Caminiti who gave us a behind the scenes look at what is involved with designing book covers. We also created our own version of a book cover for “Mr. Tiger Goes Wild”. Overall it was a wonderful experience. Thank you Little, Brown Books for Young Readers!
