Kuhu Amin, Anna Field, and Reagan Ivey of the SGS Chamber Choir have recorded two Christmas songs from Amy Grant's Christmas album -- "Emmanuel" and "Little Town".

US/MS Music Director David Demand explains how they were created:  "I first sent out a piano part for everyone to follow.  The students either came in and sang their parts in my studio or did them at home and emailed me their parts. Once I put together a rough recording using everybody's individual track, I used Dropbox and sent all of the parts to Ben Clark (SGS Class of 2020) who did a master mix down and finalized everything.  This was tricky, but at least it puts the students on track for singing.  Hope you enjoy!"

Congratulations to the following SGS 7th/8th grade choir members, who were selected for the 2021 Junior All-State Mixed Choir this year: 

Isabela Acosta (Alto)
Savanna Briceno (Alto)
Kaylee Clark (Alto) 
Carsyn Gildehaus (Alto)
Audrey Ince (Alto)
Maggie Morris (Alto)

Although they will not perform live this year, they are invited to a special virtual workshop and will be recognized for their achievement.  Go Dragons!

Through the magic of digital mixing, you can enjoy two Christmas songs from the SGS Choir -- "Cool Yule" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".  US/MS Music Director David Demand explains how they were created:  "I first sent out a piano part for everyone to follow.  Some of the students were able to come in and sing their parts in my studio.  Several of the students were remote and had to email me their parts. Once I put together a rough recording using everybody's individual track, I used Dropbox and sent all of the parts to Ben Clark (SGS Class of 2020) who did a master mix down and finalized everything.  This was tricky, but at least it puts the students on track for singing.  Hope you enjoy!"

Lower School students created a variety of drawings, paintings and prints to celebrate winter and the holidays.  Here is a YouTube Slideshow of some of them compiled by Art teacher Jennifer Davenport.

The 9th grade's Intro Art class created busy drawings in the style of the classic Where's Waldo kids' books.  See a Photo Gallery of their colorful, detailed drawings that each focus on a different theme.

The 7th and 8th graders used drawing programs to create elaborate mandala-like drawings, which they then colored by hand.  See a Photo Gallery of them showing off their colorful creations.

The 9th grade art class drew animals from photographs using cross-hatching and other pen techniques on paper.  See a Photo Gallery of the remarkable creature closeups that they've captured!

The Kindergarten artists painted snowglobes and drew a big snowman family to decorate the Arts Building gallery.  See a Photo Gallery of their snowy creations.

The 1st graders created a winter town across the bottom windows of the Arts Building.  See a Photo Gallery of their colorful creation.

The 2nd graders drew owls to perch in these paper birch trees in the Arts Building.  This was part of their focus on learning about owls this fall.  See a Photo Gallery of the variety of owls that have landed on those trees!
