It's getting colder, and while you're busy with schoolwork due before the break, I'm huddled up with Suite Francaise, a novel that was written during the German occupation of Paris in WWII by an author who was murdered at Auschwitz. Her daughters left France with the manuscript in a suitcase, but couldn't bring themselves to read it for 40 years -- it turns out it is a masterpiece! And one of The New York Times Notable Books of 2006.
Try to get to see your friends perform at one of the HHSD winter music concerts -- the high school orchestra concert last Thursday was beautiful and only took an hour of my time (hint, hint)! Weds eve at 7:30 is the high school treble chorus (I'm told they sound wonderful so I'll be there), and next Weds eve at 7:30 is the high school band concert -- always terrific! The middle school band and orchestra concert is this Thurs eve. Go hear some great music!
