Tasty Tacos and Lively Music Are Crowd Pleasers on Dec. 7, 2011

Many students’ families and district personnel supported Family Taco Night at the middle school in support of the 8th grade Washington, D.C./New York trip scheduled for spring of 2012. Mr. Art Escobedo, Los Nietos Middle School Board Member, generously donated the funds to bring in a taco vendor. Students sold tickets to the Family Taco Night and for the opportunity drawings. Thank you to all of our guests who shared a delicious meal that included a plate of 3 tacos with pico de gallo and salsa, beans, rice, and a salad. Our PTC president, Ofie Torres, provided punch and sold cupcakes for an added festive flare. When it comes to bringing community together, LNMS builds lasting memories.

There was plenty of toe-tapping at the Winter Concert. The event began with Mr. Carey Furnish, Band Director, leading the intermediate band through familiar tunes. Students played tunes that inspired school spirit and are common at football games. They concluded by playing a selection of holiday music.

The LNMS Choir, under the direction of Mr. Evan Mooney (Choir Director) followed the band’s presentation. Students were dressed in formal performance attire. They looked radiant, were poised, and presented themselves well. Their harmonious voices put smiles on the faces of guests. During the last song of the evening, choir members pleasantly surprised the audience by surrounding them by forming a large circle around the seating area, singing directly to them and sending them off with an enthusiastic holiday song.
