From Gwinnett Gladiators President, Steve Chapman in an email on 10/23/13:
... I wanted to let you
know that your rendition of O Canada this past weekend was absolutely
one of the best performances that I have heard. It was truly
outstanding. All of our players were impressed as well.
As you can imagine, our Canadian players truly appreciate the
performance and our French-Canadian players were especially
I'm going to guess by your last name that you have
some French heritage and the combination of the French and English in
the song was outstanding.
Please pass my comments along to your choir and tell them that we were all impressed with their performance.
We hope that you enjoyed the game and that the money raised will go to good use at your school.

Welp. The video is blurry, but the sound is good!
Anybody have a better video to share?
Send a link to me via email and I can put it here!
And in the meantime, here's something happy to watch!
Obviously, I had some camera focusing issues, but here are some photos:
The kids made it onto the big screen.
...and got to hang out with Maximus
And got props on the Gladitators' game day thread (thanks Mark Jordan, whoever you are!)
Sadly, the game did not have the outcome we'd hoped for--a 3-1 loss. But we still love our Gladiators!
This should be a fun one! The students have 15 choices for how they want to show their knowledge and learning in Music. Each student may choose ONE activity to complete by the due date. I will accept work live, video, podcast, written, sculpted, acted...whichever way the students choose!
You may send me a link to their
work, it can be hard copy, or live. Please make sure your child also submits
the project rubric & reflection (pg. 2 of the link above). Students who complete a
“Say” project should turn in their script or talking notes instead of a reflection.
Items to note:
Some projects require approval from Ms. Turgeon
(the Play and Design Your Own). Please read the indicators carefully!
If your child wishes to work with a partner they
must bring a note from EACH partner's parent by November 15th.
If your child(ren) decide to do a project that
involves Spanish language or culture they can earn points in Spanish class!
Please encourage your child to spend a little
time each week on the project (10-15 min. 2-3 times week works for most) rather
than waiting until the last minute!
I have a TON of music textbooks that have songs
your child may be interested in learning/performing. They may come by any
morning between 7:45-8:00am to browse! I can also stay after school to help
your child on Thursdays with advance notice.
You may be able to find some songs you'd like here:
