The Sanibel School, at 3840 Sanibel-Captiva Road, Sanibel, presents the following:

Doster makes all-state choir

Eighth-grader Lilly Doster has earned a place in the All-State Middle School Treble Choir. The choir consists of a couple hundred middle-school singers from across the state. Over 1,000 students auditioned to be a part of the ensemble. In order to be accepted, Lilly had to go through an audition process that involved passing a written test on music theory concepts, performing a sight singing test and preparing the choir’s repertoire to be recorded for her vocal audition. She will travel to Tampa in January to be a part of the Florida Music Educators Association Conference. Lilly will take part in daily rehearsals and workshops, which culminate with the All-State Middle School Mixed Choir concert.

Students picked for honor choir

The School District of Lee County’s All County Middle School Honor Choir Festival took place on Nov. 15 at Cape Coral High School. Students Ava Camputaro, Lilly Doster, Preston Hanni, Gabby McKinney, Gracie McKinney, Camryn Peach and Kristian Schafer were selected to represent The Sanibel School by Music Director Joey Giangreco.

Recycled art supplies needed

The Sanibel School is in the beginning of brainstorming for the Children’s Holiday Tree Trail at the Edison Home. The theme is “Moonlight and Sunlight.” The criteria calls for using recycled materials that can withstand the outside elements, as well as be creative. The school is in need of round Altoid metal containers and small toys sitting or standing figurines. It also hopes to collect moonshells from any shell collectors. Items can be dropped off in the school office for Ty Stewart.
