All-State musicians honored by school board

Joined by their teachers, the 46 All-State Musicians from Mercer Island High School and Islander Middle School were honored at the Jan. 25 Mercer Island School Board meeting. These band, orchestra and choir students have been selected to participate in the 2018 Washington Music Educators Association All-State honor groups in February.

These students were selected from hundreds of applicants that submitted recordings and were screened individually by professional musicians. They will participate and perform in one of a number of large ensembles led by nationally-renowned conductors at the state convention to be held in Yakima Feb. 15-18.

No school Feb. 15

Thursday, Feb. 15 was reserved as a school make-up day in case of a weather closure. There have been no weather-related school cancellations so far this year. Therefore, the Mercer Island School District will not be using the makeup day and there will be no school that day.

Vote by Feb. 13

Ballots have been mailed to all registered voters on the Island for the Replacement Educational Maintenance and Operations Levy. Please remember to vote by Feb. 13. There is a convenient ballot drop box at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center. An informational mailer on the levy has also been mailed and is available online at mercerislandschools.org/levy.
