The 9-12 Orchestra is in the thick of practicing for the Winter Spectacular. The program that we have chosen to play is very challenging and I am very proud of the students for hanging in and learning what needs to be learned. This program is a big step for these kids and I am so proud of them for having a good attitude and working towards the performance! I hope that you will all be able to come and hear the 9-12 Orchestra and 9-12 Band on Friday, December 8th at the LCHS auditorium at 7pm.

9-12 Orchestra Picture Day is this Wednesday, November 8th, during 0 period. Bronson Photography will once again come and take a group shot of us. Order forms will be available so that you can buy the photo. Students should come to 0 period in their full concert dress — EVEN SHOES AND SOCKS! There will be time to change into school clothes after the photo shoot.
