The Co-Curricular Activities Season is in Full Swing at Sibley East Middle School/High School
by Steve Harter, Secondary Principal

Throughout most of the school year there are usually co-curricular activities occurring several evenings a week.  But recently, the frequency of those activities has really hit a “crescendo” (musically speaking).  Both the Sibley East Choir and Band recently competed in the State Sub Section contests.   Both of the contests took place at Gustavus Adolphus College.   Thirty-nine of our choir students competed; of these, twenty-four earned the rating of Superior.  The individual standout was Sibley East’s Colin Chavez who received the “Best of Site” honor for his outstanding performance.  The Sibley East Band had twenty-eight individual participants; twelve of those students earned a Superior rating.  The highlight for the instrumental group was the superior rating that was received by the Sibley East Jazz Band. 

Another Fine Arts activity that recently performed was the SE Theater Department’s play “The Beauty and the Beast”.  This musical rendition of the Walt Disney production involved forty-three of our students in either cast or crew roles.  The performance was extremely well done and very well received by the audience members that were fortunate enough to attend.  The numbers are actually somewhat staggering; over a thousand people attended the three performances; nearly 500 at the Friday evening performance alone! 

In addition, the Sibley East Spring sports season has started with Baseball, Softball and Track seasons now underway.  If you want to watch a Sibley East team play, there will most likely be one of our teams competing four days (and Saturdays) of the week.

The AVID Marshmallow Challenge!!!
Teamwork Building

AVID 8 students recently competed in the Marshmallow Challenge. Each group got 20 (uncooked) spaghetti noodles, 1 yard of string, 1 yard of tape, and 1 marshmallow. The teams were to construct a tower using only the supplies given. Groups had to work together to build a tower tall enough and stable enough to support the marshmallow at the top. The winning group had a tower of 19.5 inches! Students had a great time working with and competing against their classmates.

Teamwork is a very important skill to master. It will be very helpful for the student's postsecondary education and careers.
