Week in Review: What’s been happening?

Hi, friends! We hope you had a relaxing Spring Break and have been adjusting to the new schedule. What’s been going on in the virtual library?

7th graders in Mr. Crabb’s History class completed their March Madness projects. For March Madness, students read historical fiction books and then write essays about what they read. The essays then go head to head in brackets, competing for the #1 spot. Congratulations to Mia G. for winning top spot with her essay on The Lost Boys!

At the beginning of the week, the first ever virtual Sophomore Symposium took place with the top 10 presenting on a multitude of topics. The winners were announced on Friday and congratulations are in order to:

  • 1st Place – Elliot C., Sacramento: A Study of Racial Housing Patterns
  • 2nd Place – Sanjana A., Immunotherapy: The Ultimate Answer to Cancer
  • 3rd Place – Miles M., The History of the Japanese in the United States

and to all the presenters:

  • Arjin C., The Future: GMOs
  • Evan G., Flooding in Sacramento: A Long History
  • Nihal G., Nuclear Power: Is It Viable?
  • Tina H., Opening the World of Contemporary Art
  • Arijit T., Genetically Modified Crops: The Future of Food
  • Arikta T., California Cuisine
  • Daisy Z., Sacramento Water Resource and Quality

One of our favorite events is Music in the Library and on Friday we “hosted” 5th grade and orchestra teacher Mrs. Hoyos (on cello), her husband (on flute), and her daughter (on piano). It was a lovely treat. They played:

1- The Swan by C. Saint-Saens
2-Waltz Op. 64 C#m by F. Chopin
3-Berceuse by G. Faure
4-Alleluja by W. A. Mozart
5-Arioso by J.S. Bach
6-Budapesto by Carey Cheney
7-At Twilight by W.H. Squire
8-Sicilienne by M. Paradis.
