Fall Chorus concert
Bravo to the wonderful Middle and Upper School choruses for their incredible Fall Choral concert performance on Oct. 3. The sixth graders chorus wowed the audience with their performances of “The Turn Off Your Phone Song,” “Haida,” and “Some One.” The seventh and eighth grade chorus continued the incredible night with “Adiemus,” “Over the Sea to Skye,” and “Siyahamba.” After a brief intermission, the Upper School chamber ensemble performed showstopping numbers including “Dover Beach,” “Cantate Deo,” and “Las Gaviotas.” Encore!

Fifth grade create Tim Burton self-portraits
Lotspeich fifth graders recreated the iconic aesthetic of film director Tim Burton during Lotspeich art teacher Jody Knoop’s class. As they illustrated, students also strengthened their shading and highlighting skills. After their portraits were complete, they framed them with black construction paper.
