High Schoolers Participate in Chain Reaction Program
On Thursday, October 19, all of Nazareth High School participated in the Chain Reaction Program presented by representatives of the Friends of Rachel organization. The teens and adult sponsors played games, listened to speakers, and had opportunities to get to know each other better.
“I enjoyed it,” senior Laci Backus said. “I think it was really beneficial to us all. My favorite activity was the avalanche one. We had to switch chairs with someone when they said something that described us. It was a fun way to learn more about everyone.”
Nazareth Band Competes at Contest
The Swift Band competed at the UIL marching contest at Dick Bivins Stadium on Saturday, October 21. The group performed “Trail of Tears” by Barry Hurt. The songs were entitled “Tribal Celebration”, “Ghost Dance” and “Calvary Attack”. The band was judged on a 1-5 scale, with one being the best, and earned a two.
“I think the band did a terrific job and marched very well,” band director Angela Fulkerson said. “We will continue to work on fine tuning to do even better on future contests. I was satisfied with the score we got and know the judges’ critiques will help us improve future performances. I am proud of my students.”
