We were so pleased to have The Mike Bono Group stop by and spend some time with our students. We set up a cozy corner in the Teagle library and Mike Bono (guitar), Jimmie MacBride (drums) and Josh Crumbly (bass) played a short set on their way to the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival in Burlington, Vermont. In this video, the group plays a composition titled "The First Dance". Special thanks to music teacher Jody Henderson.
We capped off our Best Thursday gatherings with a terrific display of fun and talent. We enjoyed great music, comedy, dance and more. Congratulations to all of our seniors and our departing faculty and staff. We will miss you all. Click on the image to view the entire gallery.
We had a wonderful evening earlier this month when our 7th and 8th grade students showcased their talents and hard work at our annual Middle School Celebration Night. Eighth graders conducted their 1st annual ""Career Fair", a year-long project related to a career of their interest. We met budding medical professionals, law enforcement officials, researchers, writers, entrepreneurs, auto mechanics, teachers, and artists! Click on the image to view the entire gallery.

Man, Oh Man was this a great visit by The Project Trio. A big thank you to Greg (flute), Eric (cello) and Peter (contrabass) for a fantastic concert, conversation and beat-box lesson. Thanks to Pentangle Arts Council, Mr. Henderson and Mrs. Robar for bringing them to WUHSMS! Here is how some have described Project Trio...."combining the virtuosity of world-class artists with the energy of rock stars, PROJECT Trio is breaking down traditional ideas of chamber music. The genre-defying Trio is acclaimed by the press as “packed with musicianship, joy and surprise” and “exciting a new generation of listeners about the joys of classical and jazz music.” Gramophone Magazine recently singled out the group as “an ensemble willing and able to touch onthe gamut of musical bases ranging from Baroque to nu-Metal and taking in pretty much every stylism in between,” while The Wall Street Journal hailed the Trio for their “wide appeal, subversive humor and first-rate playing.” The New York Times has called beatboxing flutist Greg Pattillo “the best in the world at what he does.” Click on the image to view the entire gallery.
Tom Reid's Honors English class took to the woods this week to immerse themselves in nature as they study Transcendentalism through the lenses of Thoreau, Whitman, and their own. When reflecting on what the outdoor classroom can offer for learning, this is what they said. "I could focus." "I felt less stressed." "I was invigorated and inspired." "I was at peace." "It was a nice break from the routine." "I had clearer thoughts." "I was more self-aware."
So-if you haven't yet been out to the outdoor classroom, let these reflections inspire you to take a walk and clear your mind!
