Also, we feel that we have the greatest school in America and this provides a great opportunity to prove it!

Choir Concert a GREAT Success!
Ms. Richart and the choir students had an amazing performance on the night of February 25th. It was standing room only in the Performing Arts Center at Olympia High School and our RMS choir students really showcased their talents. This concert involved students from 5th to 12th grade. Ms. Richart and the other choir teachers did an incredible job coordinating efforts to make the performance a finely tuned machine with well over 300 performers! Below you will see a picture of our 7th and 8th grade choir students getting ready to perform. Thank you Ms. Richart and all the incredible choir students at Reeves!

Thank you to the amazing students who created these wonderful projects and thank you to our amazing 6th grade block teachers for educating and putting the work in to facilitate this amazing night! Here are some pictures if you were unable to attend:
Band Trip to UW
On Monday, February 9th, the 7th & 8th Grade Band represented Reeves Middle School at the Pacific Northwest Band Festival at the University of Washington. The band performed very well and received awesome comments from the college band directors of Arizona State University, University of Oregon, New England Conservatory & and the conductor of the United States Army Band in Washington D.C. In addition, they were able to witness numerous other top bands from across the state and 3 students were nominated to perform with the University of Washington Symphonic Band in concert. Students also were able to tour the university campus and study contemporary & cultural national music standards at the EMP Museum at the Seattle Center. The weather & traffic couldn't have been better timed. Many thanks to the many parent chaperones, bus drivers, & the UW staff to make so much learning happen! :)
