Garinger’s performing arts – dance, chorus, band and orchestra- will be performing a winter concert 6 p.m. Dec. 13 in the Garinger auditorium. There is no admission charge.
This is a formal assement and it will show the progress students made since the start of the school year.
Starting with the basics, learning the proper use of the muscles, the voice and learning to read music has prepared the students for this performance. They have practiced as if it were at a sports team. The students are learning how to work with one another. This is a team event they are all in it together. They understand that this is a performance, if they mess up, they cannot start over.
Mrs. Thompson, the chorus director, expects this concert to be very successful for students, staff and parents.”The Performing Arts teaches discipline,” she reminded. The students that will be performing in this winter concert are the ones who have been disciplined and know their music and where they stand. “They have put in the time and work.”
So, if you enjoy music, come out and join the performing arts in their winter showcase. Everyone is welcome to come and see the results of the performing arts classes. This is the second arts performance since Garinger’s chorus restarted last year. They are looking forward to another successful show.

Garinger’s Garden Club is having a fit and green community event called Winter Garden Land 10 am – 1 pm Saturday, Dec. 8th at Garinger High School’s Green house.
The event will include a clean up activity in which the participants and volunteers will go around the neighborhood to pick up recyclables and trash.
Afterwards, the event will have a cooking demonstration using the vegetables the garden club has grown in the garden.
The garden club is also hosting a coat drive the entire week before the event. The coats will be given away to the volunteers on Saturday.
The event is free and open to the public.
The purpose of the event is to give back to the community.
Ms. Hendee and Mr. Ingram launched the garden club last year. This year, the club is partnering with One Hundred Gardens to create a sustainable type garden to teach kids about sustainable agriculture in three different regions.
One Hundred Gardens is a community-based organization that helps create and teach faith based communities, civic clubs and PTAs about sustainable agriculture for a greater cause.
Sam Fleming is part of One Hundred Gardens and he came to a garden club meeting to teach about hydroponics.
It will be installed in the near future at Garinger’s greenhouse.

For more information about the garden club contact Ms. Hendee. The regular meetings are 2:30-3:3- p.m. Wednesdays in room 205.
