    High School Band News

    A Look at the Bands

    High School Concert Band

    The band performed very well for their winter concert. Our next goal is preparing for the spring concert in late February. I have two contest pieces picked out which I hope to perform on the first concert. I am also in the works of putting together a tour of the lower schools sometime in March. For this I plan a Disney Concert. In band we started working on an Aladdin medley, Beauty and the Beast, and Lion King.

    Jazz Band

    Jazz band performed very well and the reception was a success.  We will be playing some new music. My goal is to have two sets of four pieces for the Valentine’s Day fundraiser. Jazz band will be performing at two contests in the spring. The first is the UNI Tall Corn Jazz Festival on Saturday February 18th. The second is the Hoover Jazz Festival on Saturday March 4th.

    Body Percussion

    The body percussion performed at one of the basketball games. We are currently working on our boom whackers unit. Students have learned songs like amazing grace, my country tis of thee, jingle bells, and others. There wasn’t a body percussion course on the schedule for next semester so I added one to get more students involved.

    Columbus Student Council

    Columbus Student Council   -  “Share what you can Project”

    Columbus Student Council sponsored a service project for the Lucas County Food Pantry.  This service project allowed Columbus Students to collect food items and support people in our own community.  We are so proud of our students for wanting to support families in our community, especially during the Holiday season, which can be a difficult time for some families.  The Student Council delivered 12 boxes of food items along with homemade holiday cards to the Lucas County Pantry last week.
