Preparation for the Spring Concert

Trumpets, trombones, clarinets, flutes, tubas, euphoniums, french horns, and percussion. The Spanish Fork Junior High School Concert Band is practicing for their Spring Concert. They are playing songs like “DarkHeart” which is actually a piece of music based off a book. The book is called “Dark Adventure” which is a fictional book which includes much magic. “DarkHeart” is supposed to be part of a scene where the main character is running away from the castle. According to Max Fraser, 9th grade Concert Band percussionist, “It’s really challenging, but is a fun piece. I like the style of the music; it’s kind of creepy, but it’s also really fast-paced.”

       The band is also performing a piece called “Resplendent Light (On Walden Pond)” which is a slow touching piece. According to Enoch Sanchez, 8th grade trombonist, “The piece portrays how we as a group can help better ourselves so we may better others. When we have accomplished this, we may finally see the beauty in nature and in everyday life and reach what I like to call, ‘Resplendent Light’.” I couldn’t have described it any better myself.

“The Great Locomotive Chase” is, in my opinion, our best piece. It contains many percussion instruments. You will find chimes, bells, drums, timpani,  and even the rim of an actual train. I can’t really describe to you how they all sound. The percussion music is supposed to have sounds that sound as though they would be on or near a train.  While the percussion is doing that, the entire rest of the band is making the piece flow together, have meaning, and really does everything else.

The band has been working very hard on these songs and pieces. They play every single day trying to work out every single mistake. If you would like to see the Spring Concert they will be performing at Spanish Fork High School, on Thursday, May 17.

SAGE Testing

The end of the school year often comes with stress to get your grades up, procrastinated assignments suddenly seeming more important, and frantically searching through an oversized binder to find that one missing paper. Probably the greatest of many students’ worries is SAGE Testing. Like any other overwhelmingly important test, the teachers stress to their students to get a good night’s sleep, eat a good breakfast, and bring a water bottle if they want. SAGE Testing takes information from the start of the year to the end, and puts them all into one great big test. Though they don’t speak very highly of this unnerving test, students do seem excited to see their score at the end. Perhaps it’s because they get to see how well they did. Or maybe it’s simply because they know they’re finally done.

Today was the annual 6th grade vs Faculty kickball game.  There has been a lot of talk around the school on who was going to be victorius between the two teams.   We are pretty sure the faculty won but 6th grade is protesting the actual score.  The PTA saved everyone at the end of the game by bringing Otter Pops to cool off afterwards.  It was so fun and a great way to bring spirit to our school.  Great job everyone!

Jordanelle Dam...It was so cool! We learned a lot about the dam and the water in the lake. It was super loud inside the power plant. I leaned that the Power Plant is a really cool and fun place. I also learned that I can light up a light bulb by peddling a bike.
