A message from the principal…

Middle school winter activity season is well underway!  Pleasant Hill Middle School choir classes are busy preparing for our upcoming winter concerts! Our big focuses in class have been sight reading with solfege to become better music readers, developing part tolerance so that students sing their parts accurately while other sections sing different parts at the same time, and adding expressive elements to the music such as dynamics, phrasing, articulations, and facial expression so our performance is interesting for an audience to observe. Students will first perform on Saturday, December 6th for the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting in downtown Pleasant Hill at 5:30pm. Our second performance will be on Wednesday, December 10th at Crown Center at 6:30pm, and our final performance this holiday season will be on December 19th for our school assembly. Students will be performing a variety of music including: a Medieval Spanish chant titled “Cuncti Simus”, a duet from Handel’s oratorio “Judeas Maccabeus” called “Sing For Joy!,” a 16th Century Spanish Lullaby called “A La Puerta Del Cielo,” a song titled “Bells” with text by the famous poet Edgar Allan Poe, as well as some traditional Christmas Carols and holiday favorites. Music is a great way to celebrate the holiday season. We would be so pleased if you would join us for one of our performances!

The 2014 wrestling season kicked off on Thursday, November 20 at Odessa with a quad against Odessa, Lexington, and Excelsior Springs.  The Middle School Wrestlers have been working very hard since the start of the season on October 27th and are ready to show off their hard work on the mats.  They have been practicing every day out in the sports complex with Coach Leslie and Coach Gasper.  The team is 23 wrestlers strong this year, and we anticipate having a positive season!  This year we will also wrestle in the first MRVC Middle School Wrestling Tournament (both East & West sides participating).

Basketball also fills up almost every evening these next few weeks.  Our middle school boys basketball players hosted our first home game last Monday evening in our middle school gym against Harrisonville.  The 8th grade team won their contest 33-27, and the 7th grade boys won 31-6.    The boys basketball team is looking forward to another exciting season!  We have a strong group of boys this year including twelve 8th graders and twelve 7th graders.  The 8th grade team is being coached by Coach Hutzell and the 7th grade team by Coach Kober.  We appreciate all the hard work that the boys have put in thus far!

This year the Girls Basketball Team has started the season with 23 girls. This year’s group includes eight 8th graders and fifteen 7th graders. Returners from last year’s A Team that went 11-4 include Averee Brattin, Taylor Shewmaker and Cassie Waddle. Multiple individuals from last year’s B Team will have the opportunity to continue playing are Sydney Bunch, Danielle Lichte, Zoe Crockett, Kennedy Burton and Miranda Kelley. The first game of the season was Monday, November 24th at Harrisonville. Our first home game is Monday, December 8th against Odessa. 

Educationally,
Jenny Daniel, Principal
