Congratulations to Jessica Holcomb for making the Indiana Junior All-State Band as 1st alternate. Jessica is a 7th grade student at Edgewood Middle School. She is 1 of 6 oboists in the state that was selected to this very prestigious 100-member band. All 7-9 grade students in Indiana were given the opportunity to make a recording of selected musical excerpts demonstrating their technical and lyrical playing. These recordings were then sent to the state level for evaluation. " I am very proud of Jessica. Her hard work and determination has been an inspiration for others. She will represent Edgewood and our community with pride,' states Joseph Peloza, Director of Bands at the middle schools.
Students in Spanish class played some rousing games of Go Fish. Rules were the same as from childhood, only you had to speak in Spanish, not English! It was so much fun, even Mr. Culver joined in. As he doesn't speak Spanish, the students had great fun teaching him what they know!
