Chicago Trip 

ChicagoIt was a joy to have the students see and experience absolute masterpieces of art - both visual art and musical art.  The students marveled at the CSO concert, Lutoslawski's 'Musique Funebre', Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3, and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique" .  I was beyond proud to hear the students' positive reactions to the concert, and they showed openness to a variety of musical styles.  Chloe Mendez, a Farnsworth student, remarked, "Chicago was an amazing adventure to spend with my orchestra family!  The Art Institute was filled with beautiful artwork.  I'd definitely go back again!".  Erika Escamilla, another Farnsworth  student, stated, "the symphony we went to really pushed me to try my hardest because there are such great things you are able to ready in orchestra.  The pieces we heard were from some of my favorite composers.

 

 

Door Decorations For Advisory

Respect

Advisory classes were asked to decorate their door for the month of April.  They had to choose from one of the following themes:  respect, appropriate use of technology, or tardiness.  The positive message on the doors serve as a great reminder to help our students follow the PBIS matrix.

 

UW Marching Band In Madison

Madison

  100 of Farnsworth's band students had the amazing opportunity on Friday, April 25th, to hear the UW Marching band live in concert at the Kohl Center in Madison. Amoung the many various pieces the UW band played were songs from the Beatles, Phantom of the Opera and of course the "Fifth Quarter" tunes. Students witnessed performances by guest artists Mark Pender and Yom Wopat. It was a very exciting experience for our students and they look forward to next year's trip to Madison.
