  • Sounds of the Season

    Conrady’s band and choir students rang in the season with a wide-ranging performance Wednesday before a packed house of parents and well-wishers. Under the direction of Sue Clemons and Aubrey Malito, the annual holiday concert featured some fine renditions of seasonal classics and dynamic new offerings. In addition to Jazz Band favorites such as Feliz Navidad and Rock Around the Clock, the enthusiastic crowd was also treated to some stirring folk and classical performances by the Concert, Symphonic and Combined Band members. Not to be outdone, the Varsity Singers filled the gymnasium with choral numbers that ranged from stirring spirituals to rousing movie soundtracks. Congratulations to all!

    It was a delicious challenge and Conrady’s LEAP students warmed to the task. Using patterns, color schemes, and sequencing, they were asked to build a gingerbread house that not only satisfied building codes, but looked good enough to eat. Mission accomplished.

  • All the World's a Stage

    Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” is a holiday classic, staged and restaged for audiences who revel in the tale of a miserly old man who is transformed into a kinder and more understanding person. In preparation for their study of the Dickens novella, Conrady’s 7th Grade classes got a chance to see a live production recently. The field trip to see the Stagg High School production also provided the perfect opportunity to combine an academic standard -- that requires students to compare literary text to dramatic staging -- with a whole lot of fun.

  • Class Effort

    Three cheers for Conrady’s 6th Grade class, who got together Wednesday to celebrate surpassing their fundraising goal of $300 to help the needy in Haiti through Sustainable Action International. The sum was intended to pay for the cost of one year of school for a deserving student. Instead, the students raised almost $900. Way to go, Junior Jaguars.

    Our staff is a phenomenal team. Dedicated and determined for student success is evident in the following ways:
