Poth Page: Students excel in band, theatre
Superintendent, Poth ISDMarch 28, 2012 | 1,368 views | Post a comment
The Association of Small School Bands held All-Region tryouts and for the second consecutive year, eighth-grader Daniel Soto earned first chair in the Symphonic Band (First band) out of 49 regional flute players. Also earning a chair in the Symphonic Band was seventh-grader Austin Sekula, fifth chair on French horn.
Other seventh-graders earning chairs in the Concert Band were Kacee Janek, fourth chair, and Hayden Dallmeyer, seventh chair on French horn; and Rachel Raabe, fourth chair on clarinet.
These students will perform in the All-Regional Band Concert March 24 at La Vernia High School. Congratulations to these students.
The Poth High School One-Act Play program performed the play, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” The team traveled to Three Rivers on March 19 to compete in the Zone Competition. They competed against Three Rivers, Natalia, and George West to advance to district. The play did not advance; however, the cast tried their hardest and as superintendent, I’m proud of their performance.
There are three different award levels in a One-Act contest: honorable mention, all-star cast, and best actor/actress.
Kailyn DeHoyos, who portrayed “Mother” in the play, and Rhiannon Nelson (Cynthia) received honorable mention. Play narrator Cody Soto received All Star Cast, and Drew Dylla took the prestigious Best Actor award for his work as Peyton Farquar. The Best Actor award is usually given to a student in one of the advancing plays. Drew’s earning this award even though the play did not advance is a sign of what a wonderful job he did. The play will be presented to the public Thursday, April 12, in the cafeteria.
The journalism class, under the direction of English teacher Lisa Theuret, publishes a short newspaper. Usually published on Xerox paper about six times a year, the class decided they needed to expand and go green. The editorial staffs met with the superintendent and principal and presented a proposal to follow the lead of the Wilson County News to go online! The paper is now online and updated each week. It is called “The Spyglass” and can be downloaded from our home page, www.pothisd.us. I hope you enjoy.
Andy Peters is the superintendent of the Poth Independent School District.
