6th Graders Disscected Lampreys in Science Class

Sea Lampreys are parasitic fishes that leech onto other fishes and suck their blood. Lampreys do not have stomachs, so they live only on blood because it does not have to be digested. Lampreys are S-swimmers, and they move in the water like a snake until they find a host fish and use their many rows of teeth to latch on. . The students were disgusted at first, but then they were very interested and even took part in the dissection process. Enjoy the movie created by Maggie B. and Helen G.~ Destiny G.

Palm Springs Bands Come Home with Straight Superiors!

IMG_4331I can’t tell you how proud I am of both bands.  Wow, what performances.  The Symphonic Band and I listened to the Concert Band’s performance and I’m so happy to tell you they were great.  They were one of the larger bands and they had such a nice controlled sound with great dynamic control.  Mr. Bermudez has done a tremendous job getting the concert band to play at that high level and is to be commended for a job well done.

As for the Symphonic Band, they sounded like seasoned professionals.  They looked great on stage as also did the concert band.  From the looks of the grade of music that was performed at the central location, our Symphonic Band played the highest level by performing a march and two grade 3 pieces while other bands were playing a Grade 2 and a Grade 3.  Our band received straight superior ratings while playing challenging music that is actually being played by some of the high schools in Palm Beach County.  We are continuing the fine tradition of the Palm Springs Middle School Band Program. Thanks for your great support. ~ Mr. Friedman

Have You Said “Thanks” to Ms. Jesse Recently

JESSE

You might not know this, but Ms. Jesse is single-handedly responsible for the testing lab schedule! At a moment’s notice, she may be called upon to juggle classes around or troubleshoot a computer cart crisis. If you haven’t shown your appreciation, you might want to say thanks for a job well done.
