Band and Orchestra Club

The Chesapeake Math & IT Academy Band and Orchestra Club are the best students that I have ever instructed. This past year they attended all rehearsals. Even rehearsals that were held on Fridays. In addition to attending rehearsals, they performed individual practice at home. We were invited to perform at the Chesapeake Lighthouse Foundation Cultural Festival on Saturday, April 1, 2017.

I was very pleased that they performed excellently at the cultural festival. On Thursday, June 1, 2017, at 7:00 p.m they performed their final concert for the school year, which was the Annual Spring Concert. In attendance were parents, family members, and friends. Each student performed a solo and several students showcased their talent in duets and trios. They did an excellent job on this evening.

Mr. Gunes, the Principal was present for the concert and spoke to parents, too. At the end of the concert, each student received a certificate for their participation that was lined with gold accent. Mr. Gunes and Mr. Adrian K. Young, Jr., Coordinator, presented the certificates to the students in front of their parents and families. It was truly a wonderful concert. We are so proud of our Band and Orchestra students.

MS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Morehouse Blog Page Project

Our school year is about to end. It was wonderful for us to have fun projects with students in our class. We completed HTML and CSS this year together. We believe all of our students had good progress in computer class. Morehouse students completed their blog page projects. They worked in groups, and each student wrote their individual HTML and CSS codes for their blog pages. We had four different groups.

1. Clash of Clans: Samuel, Anthony, Kiran, Jasmine, Abraham, Fisayo and Bilal.

They created their blog page about a computer game, "Clash of Clans." Each student talked about one of the aspect of the game.

2. Movies: Beryl, Dominique, Pamela, Kareena, Victoria, Chelsea, Kyra and Olanna.

They created their blog page about movies. Each student prepared their codes for a different type of movie.

3. Super Smash Bros: Kwame, Ekundayo, Levi, Gustav, Somret and Akintunji.

They created their blog page about "Super Smash Bros." Each student created a different tab for their blog page's home menu.

4. What To Do When You Are Bored: Roshni, Rochelle, Pamela, Emely and Melinda.

They created their blog page about different types of hobbies and what they prefer to do when they are bored - cooking, reading, baking, photography, etc.

Thank you to all for this beautiful school year and have a wonderful Summer break!
