  • 2. Page 2 Sync Up With Space Center 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 following topics. * 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 family. http://www.lrcf.org/node/33

  • 10. Page 10 Sync Up With Space Center 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! Mary Kate O’Grady Space Center Intermediate School Librarian 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 th 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 th to welcome you back. But the one thing all of the 7 graders are really looking forward to is…BEING AN 8TH GRADER!!!
  • 11. Page 11 Sync Up With Space Center Space Center Cardinal Bands Had a Spooktacular October! Minicamps 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. Flute: Mikala Rulander Oboe: Ben Monical Meghan Brinton Katherine Hempel Lucia Hue Daniel Saiz (Honors Band) Emily Lueng Tarushi Tanaya Clarinet: Jun Ha Ryu 1st Chair Region Symphonic Bass Clarinet: Evan Meyer 1st Chair Region Symphonic Dean Tzouanas Tharindu Wanigatunga Megan Scofield Cam Mackwell Angelo Zhang Allison Powell Contra Clarinet: Sarah Sotsuda Bassoon: Megan Fitch Baritone Sax: Megan Rasmussen Tenor Sax: Holly Fitch Alto Sax: Claire Alford 1st Chair Region Symphonic Trumpet: Yutaro Haru Josh Brog Emily Bigler (Honors Band) Jessica Musler Eric Berno Trace Bost Trombone: Chris Zhang French Horn: Monica Tice Scott Cilento Michael Rupp Akshat Patel Daniel Penley Tristan Parlin Percussion: David Bahnsen 1st Chair Region Symphonic Euphonium: Drew Galvin Cade Culver Pete Dunn Julianna Berry Chris Glisan Camille Mullery Tuba: Josh Miller Andrew Lewis Tuba: Josh Miller Andrew Lewis (Cardinals Band Continued on page 12)
  • 12. Page 12 Sync Up With Space Center 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! Fall Concert 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!

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.

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. These students competed against musicians from Lake Jackson and Pearland in addition to Friendswood and other CCISD schools. Space Center Orchestra is proud to congratulate SO many of its students as members of the Region Orchestra. The following students will be studying and performing with this esteemed group in January.

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! (Orchestra Notes Continued on page 15)
