Music

The first two to three weeks in Artistic Performance is all about vocal techniques. Just like an athlete must exercise, follow strategic games plans, and understand the value of their techniques to be successful.  In choral, a vocalist must understand proper breathing, how to open wide inside and outside of their mouth, and where to position their tongue. Beautiful music just doesn’t happen, it takes practice. Our voice is an instrument that must always be fine-tuning. It is not uncommon for the students to leave my class saying they felt like they just had a work out!

FOOTBALL

Our first Intermediate School Football game is this Thursday, September 8 at 7:30PM at the Sports Complex. Come out and cheer on our team!

 

FCA

FCA meets weekly in Coach Trent’s room on Wednesday at 7:15AM. We invite every IS student to attend.

 

Box Tops

This is a reminder that CA collects Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
