The band brought home a supe- rior judges' rating as a group, and high marks for their small group performances. Middle School band shines at district contest The Cuba Middle School band, led by director Travis Moore, performed at the district music contest in Jefferson City on Saturday, April 17. The band, consisting of seventh and eighth graders, received an overall 'T' superior rating from all three judges. Several solos and small ensembles per- formed at the contest, as well. The stu- dents who received "I" ratings on their solos were Taylor Turnbough, trumpet; Ryan St, arks, tuba; Joe Bennett, baritone; Tara Yates, clarinet; Amber Morse, clar- inet; and Nathen Ransom, trumpet. Various students also participated in small ensembles and received the superior rating. One such group was the brass sex- tet of Turnbough, Ransom, Starks, Bennett, A.J. Hughes, and Hannah Lea. A saxophone quartet of Hannah Shepherd, Eric Cooley, John Blunt, and Sara Conduitt also earned the superior rating. Liesel Benecke, Ashley Brown, Amanda Rohan, and Christy Hutson formed a 1- rated clarinet quartet. Expressing excitement, Moore com- mented, "rhese students are a big part of the future of the band program here at Cuba, and it's obvious that their talent and dedication will be great assets in the years to come. With this experience at such a young age, I believe they can look forward to many more musical success stories." Holy Cross School News i Reading programs and tutoring benefit students Story and photos by Patricia DeMarco Thanks in large part to our many wonderful volunteers at Holy Cross, students have access to invaluabt services; reading programs and tutoring. One popular reading program is the "Scholastic Reading Counts" program. Students in grades one through four read with our volunteer "Book Bud'dies" once a week--third and fourth read every Monday and first and second read on Thursdays. - The way the program works is that one of our Book Buddies selects a book with the student and the student then reads the selected book to their Buddy. Once the book is read, the stu- dent heads to the computer to take a test that coordinates with the book. This process helps develop and improve the child's comprehension of what they read. An added incentive to stu- dents, is when they pass the coordinated test, they earn points toward either a Beanie Baby or Beanie Buddy. MasterLibrarian Rita May got the Reading Counts program off the ground back in Nov. 2000 and Book Buddy volunteer Jeanne Schatz has been a coordinator of this program along with Rita. Book Buddies are: Rita May, Jeanne Schatz, Betty Sanazaro, Shirley Williams, Alice Lucash, Jackie Mulvoy, Jane Lewis, Alice Kohne and Loretta Sellers. The students have a real rapport Jeanne Schatz watches Jerry Davalos begin his test. and works with kids in grades first through sixth who need extra help in reading and math. Cuca comes in on Tuesdays and has been working with children in first through third with phon- ics, reading and spelling. After Book Buddies is finished on Mon. and Fri., Jeanne acts as tutor to any child in first grade through fourth in whatever area they need a little extra attention. Holy Cross has certainly been blessed with a lot of "angels" to help with and watch over our students and we couldn't be more grateful! Tutor "Cuca" Crlemon CONGF Nancy Roeder with their Buddies and it's hard to determine who enjoys it morel Rita has also instituted the =Book in a Bag  program. She went through the school library and picked out age appropriate books for students in Kindergarten through second grade to take home and read with their parents or on their own. Kindergarten students have a book with a cassette that they keep for a week where first and second grade receive a book each night to take home. The older students have six levels of 20 books each to read through-- that's a lot of book! "Lit Sets  are made available for students in grades three through eight, where the whole class reads the same book. Each student has their own copy of the book and reading is done in class as a group. Grades kindergarten through sixth are also eligible for the Six Flags "Six Hours of Reading . This fun program enti- ties a student to a free ticket to Six Flags upon completion of six hours of recreational reading. Nancy Roeder, Maria "Cuca" Crismon and Jeanne Schatz pro- vide an invaluable service to our school by offering themselves as tutors at Holy Cross. Nancy comes in on Mon., Wed. and Fri.
