4: Music education was a big part of our year. Students were educated in various instruments, including the piano, violin, viola, cello, guitar, electric bass, and voice. We had two concerts this year, in the fall and spring. These provide students with performance experience and build confidence. This year we focused on classic foundational music and ended the year with a rock and roll music festival, where our students showed their classmates their wide range of musical talent.
5: Students traveled this year to the San Francisco Symphony Hall to hear the musical stylings of Cleveland Orchestra and Franz Welser-Mst. Sarah Bartolome presented a session about multicultural music. She was obviously very well-educated on the subject. | We worked with the actors club to present four musical productions this year. It was truly spectacular night. We had a great time practicing for the plays and make a lot of lasting friendships. We sold out tickets every night! | We had a special guitar instructor teach us how to play modern rock songs.
6: This year we loved setting trends, from the latest clothing styles, hairstyles, and makeup to backpack and even gym shoes. This year we were all about colorful, bright tops, skinny jeans, Chuck Taylor All Stars, TOMS shoes, cool Ray-ban sunglasses, UGGS, North face jackets, and any jewelry from Claire’s.
7: So many middle school memories. It's amazing looking back how everyone has changed. I will miss everyone! I will always remember the best times I had at this school. My friends, my concerts, my teachers, and all those who made this year the best yet. | This year, we were all about reading the Twilight series. We love hanging out with our friends, and this is a list of the things we loved doing this year: going out to the movies, concerts, theme parks, hanging out at the mall, bowling, and playing video games.
