From The Principal: Mr. Christian Mueller

As we look toward holiday break I just wanted to share with you quickly that  exam review guides are available online.  Students are expected to begin preparing for finals by familiarizing themselves with their review guides and studying the material along with their notes, assignments, previous exams and quizzes, etc.  Please encourage your students to begin this process over break, as even a few hours preparing now will dramatically improve your students opportunity for a better grade on their exams.  Exams will be on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday January 24, 25, and 26.  Each day will only have 2 classes during the half day with about 1.5 hours for each class.  you can find the review guides for the following courses by clicking on the link below:

  • Science

  • Social Studies

  • English

  • Health

  • DLMD

  • Math

As an extra band opportunity, some of our students prepared a solo, duet or trio for competition.  They were judged and rated on how well they played in the musical categories: “Tone,” “Intonation,” “Rhythm,” “Technique,” and “Interpretation.”


Students earned a letter grade for each category, which is averaged for a final performance grade.  A “Division I” rating is an “A” average performance.  A “Division II” rating is an “B” average performance.



The following students received a “Division I” rating:

  •         Peter Alshammas – Snare Drum Solo
  •         Thomas Lei – Piano Solo
  •         Emma Bowen & Sukanya Jain- Woodwind Duet
