Dragon Descant 29 January 2018

Good day Dragons! The winter wonderland on Jeju continues.  How have you been getting along with the cold weather. 

The HS administration offices and the admission offices have traded places.
We are cancelling the DRAGONStars! photos (not the Golden Dragon photos in assembly).  If you have taken an Instax picture sometime last academic year or this year and you want your photo back, come and collect it before Lunar New Year. Pics left over after that time will be donated to a needy rubbish bin.

Hi KISJ HS Musicians,
Sign-ups are "dribbling" in but we still have a few places for instrumentalists who wish to be a part of the Pit Band!  See the document here to sign-up and see Mr. Leonard for a look at the part(s)-H418 (much easier music than last year!).
Performance Dates:  Thursday-Friday evenings, April 19-20.
Rehearsals will begin this month on an "as-needed" basis and full Pit rehearsals will start in February through to the performance dates and get into full swing when we "really have to go!"
It's a lot of fun!
Mr. Leonard

No one was able to guess our Dragon's Q&A faculty member last time, Mr. Daly!
 We asked our HS faculty members a few questions and I’ll give you the answer. If you are the first to guess the correct faculty member, you’ll get yourself a donut!!  To submit your guess, reply to the email I send each week but remember to reply to me only.  Do not reply all. 
Can you guess which faculty member gave the answers to the following questions? 
What was one of your favorite songs in high school?
 Where did you dream about traveling to when you were in high school?
What did you like to do with your friends in high school?
Watch movies and run.
Do you have any interesting high school fun facts?
I was the captain of the cross country team.
How many years have you been a teacher?
