Senior Season--While the entire year wraps up with the class of 2018, there are moments which really bring the class together. This week we have two such moments--the first is the Senior Conductor's night. The band students will be performing for their toughest audience: themselves. They have been playing together for years in some instances, but on Thursday the students will be leading the band and putting on a show. We will see you at DeAnza at 7:00 p.m. And to really be seen, check out the Senior Breakfast on Friday morning. The students will enjoy video and awards selected by one another and dine and delight in one another. We really like these moments because they are a preview for the transition ahead; namely that these young men and women will be moving away from looking at the adults around them for direction and instruction and start looking at each other and the world around to make their next moves. A little scary? Perhaps. But we've spent enough time with this class to say that I think we (and they) are in good hands. We know you will put on a good show, seniors

Ms. Weeks is challenging students on the Zoot Suit Riots by exposing them to two very different takes on the same event. Comparing the news coverage of the events of June 9, 1943 gives them the chance to play history detective and draw conclusions when the news isn't (as it rarely is) black or white.
