  • Astronaut Michael Collins died today at age 90. He was the man who piloted the Apollo 11 craft Colombia around the moon while Neil and Buzz explored the moon. Perhaps no human being has ever known what it is to be alone as much as this great man did.

  • “This teacher changed my life and most students who walk through the doors to her chorus room. She is an inspiration – battled breast cancer and has been in remission!!! She gave us everything she had day in and day out. My day 1 experience in her cross campus choir (both HS in our district) was an awakening that I can only imagine is similar to Eric’s moment in choir singing the requiem. She always had her desk stocked with emergency supplies for her kids as if she were all of our collective mother, ready to spring into action. She’s the first to go to out of anyone if you had a problem with anything, even family trouble or outside of school problems. She is extremely generous in that if she knew a student wasn’t eating or couldn’t afford something to eat one day, she would give them lunch money or her apple or literally anything to remedy the situation. Most importantly she made that choir room the safest environment that anyone and everyone felt welcomed in. She is the reason I sing!” Thank you Danielle for keeping the flame alive.
