Attention NFL Pick Em: Because we have two weeks worth of papers to grade, we need two mornings to grade. If you are able, we will be grading Tuesday and Wednesday morning before school this week to help us get back on track. Thanks for your help.
At the end of October, 15 7th and 8th grade band students were invited to audition for the All-Illinois Junior Band, which is a very selective state-level band that requires a strict audition. Hundreds of middle school band students from Illinois auditioned for the AIJB band, which only accepts 82 students maximum. This year, two students from Geneseo were selected based on their audition scores. Jacob Berry was selected as one of eight accepted trombones, and Tivya Bernier was selected as one of only two accepted oboes! They will travel to the University of Illinois in late January to participate in the 2 day event. Please congratulate them when you see them!
