During our first PTA General Meeting on November 5th, 2009 at 1pm, the
Laura Recovery Center will speak to us about their “Choices - Impacting
the Lives of Teenagers” Program.
Every day, from the time we wake, we begin to make choices. While
most choices, like what we wear or what we have for breakfast, may
have little impact on our life, other choices, made in an instant, may
have life-long consequences.
The Laura Recovery Center (LRC) has developed a program for teens that
addresses issues they face most every day. These issues include the
* Running Away
* Dating Violence
* Internet Safety
* Substance Abuse
* Positive Choices
This will be a parent preview of the program which will be presented to
the student body at Space Center Intermediate later in the year.
Please plan to attend this event that can make a positive impact on your

relations. Upcoming service hour opportunities include Brookwood Carnival on
Saturday, November 14th from 9:30am to 4:30pm and Falcon Pass Carnival on
Saturday, February 6th. The next two meetings will be on November 13th and

Notes from the Librarian
In December we will host author Tim Tingle. He will speak about Native American
culture and tribal customs. As a Native American himself and being the author of
numerous books on the subject, he is an authority in the field, and we are proud to
have him as a speaker in our 7th grade Social Studies classes.
On November 20th, I will take 30 lucky students to see the premiere of the movie
New Moon. A competition was held in late October to choose the 30 students to go
to the film. Twilight series fans have anticipated the release of this movie for some
time, and the opportunity to see it on opening day is exciting for all.
In October we celebrated Teen Read Week with a different activity in the library
each day. We had a great time and I plan to schedule another unofficial Teen Read
Week in the spring.
Speaking of the spring semester, we will launch the Read It Forward program. You
will receive more info on this exciting event after the Winter Break.
Thank you, and remember to check out a book or two to read over the holidays!

The Life of a Seventh Grader
By Velocity Brown
I walked into school that first morning, and my two best friends screamed my name
and gave me a hug. You still have first day of school nerves, I do not think you will
ever get over those. Being a 7th grader is like the second hill on a rollercoaster. It is
different coming back to SCIS, yet also the same. You know most of the kids in
your class and you have the chance to do sports. Unlike in 6th grade when you only
knew the people you have known for most of your life. You make new friends and
keep the old ones. You can open your locker on the first try. And you still have
language arts twice a day. But when you come back to SCIS as a 7 grader, you
kind of know how things work. You know there are 7 periods in a day, you know
where most everything is, and you know that your friends and teachers will be there
to welcome you back. But the one thing all of the 7 graders are really looking
forward to is…BEING AN 8TH GRADER!!!
Page 11 Sync Up With Space Center
Space Center Cardinal Bands Had a Spooktacular October!
It all started with minicamps for the 7th/8th grade bands on October 2 and 3. Everyone worked hard, played hard, and
hit the pizza hard in preparation for District/Regional Tryouts and the first concert of the year.
Marching Band Exhibition Cancellation
Heavy rain and lightning forced the last-minute cancellation of the CCISD Marching Band Exhibition scheduled for
October 12. Everyone was disappointed, but the safety of our students has to come first.
Region Band Auditions
Victory Lakes Intermediate hosted Region Band tryouts all day on October 17. Space Center requires these auditions
for Symphonic Band members, and encourages other students to audition. Band members performed superbly!
Among the hundreds of CCISD middle school students who auditioned, the following students qualified for Regional
Symphonic, Concert, or District Band. Those designated as First Chair Regional Symphonic Band, the highest
possible honor, are noted.

Mark Your Calendars! All those selected for the Region Bands (Symphonic and Concert) will attend an all-day
clinic on November 7 at Westbrook Intermediate followed by a performance in the evening!
Region auditions completed, it was on to the Fall Concert! October 22 saw all three 7th/8th grade bands assembled in
the SCIS commons for a rousing performance in front of a full house. Concert Band performed “Olympia,”
“Defender of Time,” and the very timely “Ghosts in the Graveyard.” Mr. Matt Barnhart was showing off with this
band, whose tone and timing were impeccable in all three pieces. Next, cheers from students and the audience
welcomed back Mr. Stanley Zavala directing the Honors Band who performed “Gates of Orion,” “Castles and
Dragons,” and “Dark Fortress.” It is no surprise that several members of this band auditioned for Region, and that
two members were recognized! Finally, Symphonic Band under the direction of Mr. Donald McCandless delighted
the audience with four pieces designed to showcase the band’s ensembles. Gorgeous brass fanfares and lyrical
woodwind passages led up to the closing number, appropriately named, “Into the Clouds.” Our young musicians are
indeed flying high!

The orchestras are hard at work preparing for their upcoming concerts and events. We will be
hearing from our Beginning, Philharmonic, Symphony and Chamber orchestras in the coming months. Led
by our tireless directors Lisa Black and Jennifer Kidwell, these students are making amazing progress!
We rocked the night away at our annual Rock-a-Thon on September 25th. The kids had a blast and
raised a lot of money for the spring Mark Woods concert. Mark Wood is an original member of the Trans-
Siberian Orchestra and he will be conducting classes for students district-wide this spring. Check out his
website www.electrifyyourstrings.com. This will be an amazing experience for our students. Thanks so
much to our energetic parent volunteers: Steve Alexander - Movie Room, Ed Potter, Gina Wendes, Valerie
Carrillo, and Eric Buschorn - Pizza servers and general "crowd control", Win Weber, Joy and Omar Sheikh,
Nelda Ishikawa-Ward, Ileana Gonzalas and Mary Koontz - General crowd control. A special thanks goes to
Elizabeth Arceneaux for obtaining great prizes without breaking the budget! As always, thanks to the SCOS
board for their continued support.
Our advanced students competed for a seat in the Region Orchestra on Saturday, October 24th.

On Tuesday, October 20 th the orchestra teamed up with the Theatre department for a magical night.
This was an entertaining spoof on our beloved Harry Potter presented by the SCIS Orchestras and Theater
Arts Department. It was a “Peter And The Wolf” style production with costumes, lights, actors, and music.
This time Harry was much more than a student of magic – he was a student of music. Harry learned about
the power of music, how to develop his talent on his Stradivarius 2006 violin, and how to avoid the evil
Voldemort who tried to break his strings and foil Harry’s performance during the big contest. Our beginning
students showed off their quick and magical progression into the musical world! Children were treated to an
early Halloween with candy and treats for all!

December brings cooler temperatures (finally!) and our Winter concerts. Our beginning orchestra
will show off on December 15th at 7 p.m. in the SCIS Commons. Come see the amazing progress of these
new virtuosos. Our orchestra students will be selling beautiful poinsettias during the month so don’t miss out
on these beautiful plants. What a nice way to deck your own halls during the holiday season. Also not to be
missed is the Sweet Serenade concert on December 11th at 7 p.m. also being held in the SCIS Commons.
Come and hear our truly talented advanced orchestras serenade us with holiday tunes. There will be plenty
of sweets to go around as our volunteers dish up some yummy desserts provided by our orchestra parents.
