Also, throughout October, Key Club will volunteer with Spring Creek Assisted Living Center and the unique needs students at Eagle High to help paint pumpkins and decorate for the fall season. 

Marching Band 

The Marching Band’s performance this year is called First Circle. It is based on a piece of music called “First Circle” by the Pat Metheny Group. It’s a syncopated rhythm that the Eagle High band has never attempted because it’s challenging music with frequently changing time signatures and has stylistic shifts throughout the piece. It features Emily Wrapp on alto saxophone, Jaxon Schmit on tenor saxophone, Gianna Sprott on clarinet, Tyler Dodd on Baritone, Jacob Cohen and Grace Lee on trombone and Nico Schiavi, Abigail Perdomo and Gaige Rupprath on sousaphone. The Marching Band is excited for upcoming performances and to continue practicing.  

Also, congratulations to the band director TJ Eriksen and the Marching Band students on being 1 of 18 schools nationwide to qualify for the WGI Percussion World Championships in Dayton, OH, in April. Eagle High is the first school in Idaho to qualify for this prestigious competition. 

National Honors Society 

NHS has already participated in six events and have six more planned for the future, such as volunteering at the Meridian Food Bank on Oct. 24, Nov. 28 and Dec. 19 and participating in the recent hygiene and household drive. They will continue to hold events like these and contribute to the community through volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
