This gives the junior high student who hasn't played in band before the opportunity to explore the band medium and then to move onto other groups if the student desires. Currently, there are two groups for eighth and ninth grade stu- dents. Select band is made up of students who auditioned in the spring for placement in this year's group. This is the most performance-oriented group at the junior high and they work on a great deal of music during the course of the year. The other group of eighth and ninth graders is the concert band. In this group, students work on polishing the skills needed for them to move up to the select group at some point in the year. Two new groups have been formed this year, also. They are the Jazz Ensemble and the Lab Band. These groups are working on exploring the jazz idiom. Included in this is a study of chords and scales, as well as improvisation techniques.

Last November 18, 1982 School Report Page 13 Cheney school bus drivers demonstrate a lot of responsibility in getting children to and from school safely. One day in the life of a Cheney school bus driver A day in the life of this particu- lar bus driver starts around 5 a.m. with a cup of coffee. It's at that time that you remember what it was you forgot at the store the day before -- the coffee. Then, after you shower, get dressed, get breakfast, make sack lunches and get the rest of the family ready for the day, it's 6:45 and time to go out and inspect that great yellow bus. You do your walk-around; check the oil, water, hoses and wires, etc. Everything looks fine there. Then, it's time to get in and start her up. It's 7:00 a.m. now, and you should be on the road, so you put it in gear, the wheels are turning; but the bus isn't moving. At that time, you discover you parked on a sheet of ice last night! Now, it's 7:05 and almost panic time. You do the first thing that comes into your mind. You take off your coat, throw it under the tire, put it in gear and you are on your way. You come to the first stop and start getting the kids on board, greeting them with a smile and a warm good morning. You get them all on, pull in your stop sign and head for the next stop. On the road, you must always check your mirrors for those little cars that seem to appear right before your eyes. Finally, you get the little kids to school and you can relax, "for a little while". It's 2:45 p.m. and time to start off again. You get to the schools, get the kids on board and head out of town. Not quite! A call on the radio tells you that someone has missed your bus. So, you turn around and head back to pick her up and head out again. The rest of the trip home is pretty routine -- stopping and letting the kids off, wishing them a pleasant evening. Well, finally you arrive home, park the bus, set the brake and turn off the ignition. There, another day over with, but wait! What's that? Suddenly a little person comes out from behind the seat and you realize that you've never seen this child before. You ask him his name and where he lives. He's a little guy and knows his name is Johnny and that he lives by Grandma. And when asked where Grandma lives -- well, of course by him[ So, you call in on the radio and ask if anyone is missing a little boy, and yes, they are. The office had a frantic mother on the phone wondering where her Johnny was. Well, finally Johnny gets home, you park the bus, and head for the house. The first thing of course, is again that much needed cup of coffee. It's then you realize you still haven't been to the store!
