A NOTE FROM DR. LUCI HIGGINS
‘A life not put to the test is not worth living.” -Epictecus
“The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.” -David Jordan
During this Thanksgiving holiday, we are deeply thankful for the courage of all of those who came before us, who demonstrated their determination to make a positive difference in the lives of those they would never see.
Thinks & Thoughts,
Dr. Luci Higgins
We are proud to announce that Jackson Englund, 8th grade, has made it through an arduous, two-tiered audition process to make the Florida All-state Middle School Mixed Chorus. Jackson was among hundreds of students across the state to audition. Students had to make a high score on a written musicianship exam as well as a sight-reading test and then learn seven pieces of music. The next step was a test to sing various portions of the music and display their vocal quality. Jackson scored well in all portions of the testing to secure a place in the mixed chorus. Mrs. Savage states that this is the first middle school student to make the All-state Chorus in at least a decade. Way to go, Jackson!!
NEW THIS WEEK
And you will say in that day:
“Give thanks to the Lord,
call upon His name,
make known His deeds among the peoples,
proclaim that His name is exalted.
