Band Marches in Christmas Parade

Christmas Parade                               Christmas Parade

Brrr...... It was a cold out there, but that did not stop our West Branch High School Marching Band from participating in the recent Christmas Parade held in Salem. This March, the West Branch Marching Band will travel to New York City to participate in the St. Patrick's Day Parade. The Marching Band is under the direction of Mr. John Zamarelli.   

Music incorporated into English Classes

Fiddling around is allowed.  

West Branch Teachers have many talents, but one of their own is the 2016 Ohio State Fiddling Champion.  English Teacher, Kerry Varble uses music talents in many of her English lessons and her students really enjoy it.  Besides being licensed to teach English, she is also licensed to teach Music.  Mrs. Varble states that " All songs are essentially poetry and she uses music to teach figurative language and literary devices."  Her creative writing class did a music project where they experimented with digital music software to create tracks for a rap song and one student composed a song for a guitar.  They also did a music project where they wrote poems to accompany a piece of instrumental music or were allowed to write their own song.  

Mrs. Varble and her husband, Todd, met in a blue grass band and have performed from West Virginia to Texas and everywhere in between.  They spent ten years  traveling and playing music before she decided to use her degree in English to teach.  

French Students Explore culture

Recently, Dr. Bertrand Landry, a professor of French at Mount Union, visited Mrs. Clendenin's French III class.
 
He spoke about the importance of being bi-lingual; the advantages and the wide opportunities for students who study a second language (particularly French). Also, our students learned about the Bourgogne region;known for it's glazed tiles and the city of Dijon;known for its Dijon mustard. It was a great opportunity to learn about the French culture and language!
