Making the Grade 10-31-19
On today’s show of Making the Grade, host Tim Haist is joined by English and Drama Teacher Lori Hathaway, Band Director Albie Todd, and BRHS student Mary Hobart. They start off by watching a school marching band’s performance and then Albie and Mary discussed what they do for preparation. The next topic discussed is for Big Rapids High School’s upcoming fall musical, “Junie B. Jones”. Lori and Mary talk about the book series the musical is based on and all the behind the scenes work that’s done for the musical. Finally, Albie, Lori, and Mary discuss the school’s reputation for one of the best providers for music education and why it’s important to show younger students how to interact and connect with others for these activities.
