It's Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas

For band director Mr. Fenske, Christmas starts months early. In his MS Instrumental Music class, students have been preparing Christmas songs for weeks. Most mornings, "Carol of the Bells" can be heard by trumpets proudly playing their repeated phrase. It is the prominent tune in their fun, but most challenging piece, "African Bell Carol." Many of the students have been playing their instruments for a few years, but others have just started. There is a good variety of instruments in the class that makes for a nice band.

Critical Thinking in History

In Mr. Hulse's United States History 1 class, students are beginning to look into the Revolutionary War. As a class they will be discussing the impact this war had, not only on our country, but the effect it had on the world. They will then look into the beginning of our country's government and will study specific rights that our newly formed government found important to protect.  It is exciting to see students engaging in their history: in studying the Declaration of Independence, they thought it was cool that our country was founded by traitors to the British throne.

What is that Outside?

" Both SCL's athletic and academic programs rewarded the hard-working student/athlete, and that prolonged experience of "hard work leads to success" put me in the right frame of mind for Division 1 Track. "
