This is a slide show created by Mrs. Sherr's high school Graphic Design class. It is a composition of images, designed in Photoshop, creating an Alphabet book. Students were given the direction to keep the language simple with the target audience as early readers. I thought perhaps this could be used in some way within an elementary class.

Performing Arts take home two Silver Medals -- Congratulations!!

New York - April 2015

    

Forty-eight students from the UHS Music Department and 6 chaperones participated in the World Strides Heritage Music Festival in New York City from April 10 - 12.  The Concert Band at the Riverside Church and  the Concert Choir performed at Saint Bartholomew’s Church.  Each ensemble was critiqued by leading practitioners of  music education and led in a clinic by one of the adjudicators.  The ensembles played well and really impressed the judges with their musicality and sensitivity in performance.  Each group received score sheets as well as recorded comments from each of the three judges.  These critiques will be used to guide instruction.   The Concert Band and Concert Choir were each awarded a Silver Medal of Excellence and ranked in 2nd place in their division.  

    In addition to the music festival, the students had a chance to experience many of the highlights and landmarks of New York City.  On Friday, they went to the top of the Empire State Building and saw absolutely nothing!  There was 0% visibility and the top of the building was completely fogged in!   It was still a fun experience!   The students visited Times Square and a few even had their pictures displayed on the big billboard!

After dinner and arcade games at Dave and Buster’s everyone enjoyed a fabulous performance by the Blue Man Group.  Junior Pat Klos was even a part of the show!


   Saturday was all about the music with performances in the morning and early afternoon.  The group then visited Rockefeller Center for lunch and toured Radio City Music Hall.  They were able to see the Rockettes perform in their Spring Spectacular and some students even had their pictures taken with a Rockette!   The group took a stroll along 5th Avenue and most of us stopped in at the F.A.O. Schwarz toy store.   After the award ceremony on Saturday evening, all 1600 participants in the festival took a dinner cruise around New York Harbor!  


    Sunday was a relaxing and educational day as they took the Harbor Ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.  It was a beautiful day to be outside and enjoy the view of the New York Skyline.  The group departed for home at 2:30 PM and rolled into Uxbridge at 7:40 PM in plenty of time for everyone to get a good night’s sleep for school on Monday!
