October 28, 2011--Concert and Symphonic bands has been working hard getting things ready for the band concert at Anderson-Shiro CISD. Mr. Jesse Warmenen has been working hard with his band and doing everything that he can to make that night perfect.
Rehearsal was held yesterday, October 26, 2011, and the concert was held on October 27, 2011.
The fall concert is about sharing the Halloween feeling and bringing a hello welcome to fall. Symphonic and Concert bands has been working super hard from practicing in practice room's or working with Mr. W himself.
He may get angry because the students couldn't hit a high note, but if it wasn't for Mr. W taking the time to work with us and show us on how it sounds and suppose to be, we wouldn't be ready. However, Anderson-Shiro has a wonderful band teacher who is willing to give his own time to work with symphonic and concert bands, we are ready as can be to play at the fall concert.
Come out and watch the Symphonic and Concert bands at Anderson-Shiro and cheer the band members on and congratulate them for all the hard work that the band had to do to prepare for the concert!
Anderson Shiro FCA Cheers on Aggies at Annual Aggie Game Day By:Hannah Childress
September 23, 2011--The Anderson Shiro Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), traveled to College Station on Saturday, September 17th to be a part of Aggie Game Day. This event is held annually as a gathering of young athletes to fellowship with others who share the same beliefs.
The day began with lunch provided by Chick-fil-A, followed by a worship rally with speakers such as Skyler Collins, of the 2011 national championship women’s basketball team, Oscar Martinez, a Texas A & M track star, and Wade Hopkins, a former NFL player. As the worship rally concluded, the game began.
Texas A & M took on the Idaho Vandals, where they quickly cleared them out.
“Being able to connect with my fellow classmates was the best part of this trip. We really came together through Christ’s love in a fun way," says 10th grader Ashley Celis, who was one of the 14 students who had the pleasure of attending. Celis also stated, “I think trips like this show students in FCA that being a student who professes a faith can be very fun, which we saw on Saturday. I also think its great to know that even in the rush of high school, the rest of our FCA program is always there to have our back." This trip was a great success, and FCA looks forward to outings to come!
