Hello from the Baron Nation! This March kicked off with the jazz band traveling to Calgary for their yearly trip.
The band left early on March 1, stayed overnight and returned in the late evening of the following Wednesday.
During the band’s stay in Calgary, students enjoyed their free time in the Cross Iron Mall and the organized activity of laser tag, which has become almost a tradition.
The performance was the Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. and the band played three selections: It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing) featuring True Lazariuk on alto saxophone and Spencer Pike on trumpet; The Girl from Ipanema with myself doing vocals; and Grooved Pavement Ahead with solos from Jade Shivak on tenor saxophone, Spencer Pike on trumpet and myself on alto saxophone.
After the performance, adjudicator Jim Sisko worked with the band to improve on the songs they had performed and to help advance skills in general.
Now that March is over, we have moved into our April activities.
First, LCHS would like to inform students and staff of the fundraiser Buy a Butler coming up this April.
Several students have volunteered themselves to be sold/employed to the students and staff for one day. These students will be auctioned off by the school’s “professional” auctioneer Tanner Hnidey.
The auction itself is on April 14 and the butlers will follow their “employers” around on April 15.
Butlers can carry books between classes, wait in the lunch line in replacement of their employer and can even be dressed up as long as the chosen outfits are school appropriate.
Each butler or group being sold will try to convince students why they should be bought instead of the others so that students can decide before hand who they wish to purchase.
All money raised will be used to buy items for the school’s breakfast and lunch programs. If sales exceed expectations, any extra food will be donated to the Olive Tree to help our community in this difficult time.
Food donations will also be accepted in student services. It is important that these donations are single serve and do not require stove top cooking, such as single serve Kraft Dinner cups or Soup to Go. Granola bars, water bottles and juice boxes are also popular items that can be easily picked up. It is important to note that the school does not have a freezer so all foods must be non-perishable.
Another event for both students and the community to mark on the calendar is the annual Car and Truck Show and Carnival. It will be hosted at LCHS on May 18 with the car and truck show happening until 1 p.m. and the carnival open to the public after school hours.
The Car and Truck Show will feature cars from Baron students and there will be judging in different categories.
The carnival will have games, food and activities so come out to enjoy an evening of family friendly fun! These events are a great way for students and the community to interact with one another, while also allowing everyone to get involved in a school activity.
