Student of the Month - Musical Excellence
Our February Musical Excellence Student of the Month for Jackson High School is Jonah Pawley. Jonah Pawley has immersed himself in the music department. Jonah has performed at prestigious venues such the state music competition, Jazz Alley, and Carnegie Hall. He volunteers in the band room daily during his lunch period to mentor and encourage students as they tackle difficult music hurdles. Jonah's plans for the future involve attending Western Washington University, studying for a degree in Chemistry. He hopes to continue in some sort of music outside of school, either in a drum corps or even a professional drumline - possibly even the Seattle Seahawks’ Blue Thunder drumline! Congratulations Jonah!

Music Booster Club Begins
The Everett Music4Life Booster Club had its organizational meeting on Nov. 17th. Attending (left to right) were Dr. Mark Valentine of Everett Rotary; Jane Webber, parent of an Everett student; Dr. Joyce Stewart, Deputy Superintendent; and Georgia Lindquist of Everett Public Schools. The goal of the club is to help fundraise to acquire instruments so that more students can participate in band or orchestra at all schools in the Everett School District. The program’s first three musical instruments were delivered, along with a commitment for at least 40 more within a month from Music4Life.
The Rotary Club of Mill Creek was one of many organizations and individuals who contributed to help start this effort. If you have an instrument at home that you no longer need or want to help out directly, go to Music4Life to find out more.
