Middle School Concert
By: Quinn Hansch

            The Clarion-Goldfield-Dows Middle School band and chorus concert was on Tuesday, May 12, 2015. The band played four songs: “Mondo Glissando”, “Raiders March”, “Legend of The Eagles”, and “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The chorus sang three songs. “Splish Splash”, “Somewhere Out There”, and “We Go Together”. The chorus had some awesome dance moves in the songs of “Splish Splash” and “We Go Together”. For the band it was one last time with Mr. L for the 8th graders and Mr. L’s last time performing before he retires. At the end of the concert the middle school did a special song for Mr.L since it’s his last year. The concert had the 5th grade band, 6th grade band and chorus, 7th and 8th band and chorus and the middle school Jazz Band. It was a great performance.
            In my opinion, the concert went great. I had lots of fun, and I’m sure everyone else had lots of fun. My favorite part about the concert was the chorus. I had lots of fun singing and dancing to the songs we did. I also had a great time singing to Mr.L. The concert was also very emotional for one of the 7th and 8th grade chorus song Somewhere Out There and singing to Mr.L. Yesterday was Mr.L’s last concert and his 102 concert too. The audience held up signs and also sang along with the choir. Overall the concert was emotional, exciting, fun, and out of this world. We got a lot of great compliments and smiles in the audience. I enjoyed it a lot.



Baseball
By:  Maximus Pamperin

            I've played baseball for along time and it's one of my favorite sports to play. In the summer it’s fun to play and you get exercise while having fun. The game is fun to play when you don't know where the ball is going when it hits the bat. You don't know if you are going to hit a home run or a pop fly and you get out. If you hit the ball the farthest you have go back out and hit it further. The best part is you have fun and swing for the fence.Baseball is a fun sport.
            People should play it in the summer because it’s good exercise. Baseball could connect you with your friends and meet new friends. If you play baseball it gives you something to do in summer besides sitting there and playing video games all summer. The best part of baseball is all you need is a glove, ball, and bat to play.
