GMS Jazz Bands Compete in February
On February 6, Glenwood Middle School Jazz Bands - directed by Dennis Marcotte - competed at the 57th Annual EIU Jazz Festival in Charleston, Illinois.
Eighth Grade Jazz Band placed 3rd, with five Outstanding Performers -
Ajith Baiju, Taylor Briggs, Rene Croteau, Hayden Kimball and Christian Mendiola.
Seventh Grade Jazz Band also had three Outstanding Performers – Adepoju
Arongundade, Killian Barth, Aiden Peterson, and Brian Rettig.
Overall Outstanding Performer of the Day was awarded to GMS’ Eighth Grade Drummer Taylor Briggs.
Ball-Chatham principals and superintendent met in December to review current procedures for determining when our schools would hold outdoor recess. Principals had referred to the Child Care Weather Watch chart as a basis for recommending to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature was 18 degrees or higher. However, after discussion the team agreed to amend the practice to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature is 20 degrees or higher.
As always, when school is in session during these cold winter months please ensure that your children are dressed as warmly as possible (multiple layers), and that outerwear is rated for sub-zero temperatures.
