  1. Academic Decathlon: Congratulations to the nine members of the Academic Decathlon team who wrapped up the National competition last week and placed 8th overall in Division IV.  Individual medals were won by Sam Hoefs and Ian Hoppe. Ian won the silver medal in Literature. Sam won the gold medal in Interview and the bronze medal in Speech. She was also chosen as the team MVP and was the top scorer for the team. School records were also set by Ian, Sam, and Adam Brunner.

  1. Band Concert: Tonight at 7:00pm in the Auditorium, the Preble Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Wind Ensemble take the stage for their first in person concert since January 2020. The concert features music from West Side Story and compositions by contemporary composer Frank Ticheli. Also performing will be two state-bound groups - percussion ensemble, and the senior saxophone quartet of Carley Thiry, Kyler Simonet, Cody Sachs, and Annika Mullinax. The concert is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there! 

  1. Blood Drive: Can you spare a pint? The average adult body contains 10 pints of blood and each donation can help save up to 3 lives.

Student Council will be hosting its last blood drive on Thursday, May 5. This is next week, so if you are 16 or older and would like to donate please fill out this Google form. Important information is listed on the Google form, so be sure to take some time to read it. Also, you must fill out a parent consent form if you are 16 years old. These forms can be found in the Main Office. Each donor will also receive a $10 gift card to the place of your choice (10 options of restaurants and other places will be provided). Just be sure to give your email address to receive the gift card. If you have any questions, send Mrs. Enderby ([email protected]) an email.

  1. Boys Track: Congratulations to the boys track and field team in its huge victory at the 42nd Annual Preble Relays track meet last Friday. The boys won by 6 points over a very strong Kimberly team.

Individual winners include Riley Otto, Flavio Guzman, Coleman LaBlanc, Logan Sigmund, Ian Krings, Ivan Sedenquist, Jesse Cortes, Derek Metz, Brody Jacques, Noah Sigmund, Jaddon Potter, Josh Hurley, Cody Johnson, and Gus Coundard.

Good luck to the athletes tonight as Preble hosts an FRCC Quad track meet. Track athletes are excused from class at 2:45 and should report down to the track.

Both field and running events start at 4:00 tonight.  

  1. Music Department Activities: Have you ever wanted to get involved in the music department? Were you not able to fit music into your schedule? Guess what? You can still get involved. The music department will be beginning audition workshops for our 2022-2023 extra curricular groups throughout the month of May. Starting this week, we offer workshops for Color Guard and Drumline. These workshops will start with the basics of technique and the goal is to get you ready for an audition for membership. Some musical background/knowledge (some band, choir, or orchestra or private piano or guitar study) is necessary. 

Color Guard Workshop #1 - Tuesday April 29 3:15 - 4 pm, Room 189 (The Choir room)

Drumline Workshops - Wednesday April 27 and May 4  3:15 - 4:30, Room 197 (The Band room)

Workshop and audition information for the award-winning Preble Show Choirs and Musical will be announced soon! Stay tuned, and hope to see some new faces in the music department! 

  1. Senior Ball: Seniors, Senior Ball tickets will go on sale starting tomorrow for $35 per student. Tickets will be sold Tuesday-Thursday in the ticket booth during lunch hours and in the Main Office after school. Your ticket price includes dinner, ice cream, water bottle souvenir, DJ, and photo booth. If you plan to bring a guest, you do not have to fill out a guest pass form because the dance is offsite. 

Senior Ball will be held on Friday, May 20 at Riverside Ballroom from 6:00 to 10:30 pm. The doors will open at 5:45 and dinner will be served promptly at 6:30, so make sure to arrive on time. If you have any questions, send Mrs. Enderby an email ([email protected]).

Set in the 1970’s, witness as violence erupts on the streets and music flows through the discos at night. 

Attention all student staff…a reminder to promptly meet in 123 at 3:15. Carolyn Silverberg from Play By Play Theater will be talking with the cast. Reminder to all ensemble actors to meet after school in the auditorium.

  1. Yearbook: Attention all band, choir, and orchestra students! You are being issued a challenge: We need pictures for the yearbook. On Monday and Tuesday of this week, please take three pictures during rehearsal that can be used in the book. If you already have some pictures on a computer or on your phone, that is great.
