There are so many great things about our school at West Clermont. The Art programs at West Clermont are very important to the students and teachers. Not only do we have programs during school, we have so many after-school programs as well. During school hours those include band, choir, dance and piano. During the whole the day, music is flowing through out the school.
West Clermont’s Band is an outlet for a lot of students. I have been told that you make some of your best friends in band. The West Clermont band has been taught by Brain Fischer since the school opened in the summer of 2017. Among the Seniors that have been in band since the beginning, Sophie Jennings shared what being in West Clermont’s band means to her: “Band has shown me how to manage my time, be more organized and so many more things. I have learned to come out of my shell and become more extroverted. I used to be a very shy person, but band has taught me how to be myself around more people. All of my friend group has come from band, and I have made a family that I will forever appreciate. Our band director, Brian Fischer, has shown that he isn’t just here for the money. He is here to share his love of music with the students and teachers of West Clermont.”
The 1994 movie “Little Women” was just remade by the screenplay writer and director Greta Gerwig. Greta made this movie off the book that was released in 1868 by Lousia May Alcott. Greta really did make this movie come to life. From the way every scene fits together to one of the best casts I think that could be cast for these roles.
Sadly we all heard about the tragic wildfires in California, but now across the world Australia is also burning. “Australia has suffered a devastating early bush fire season with fires across several states burning through hundreds of thousands of hectares and destroying hundreds of properties with the loss of six lives.”-(theguardian.com)

“Last Christmas” came out on November 8 2019. The romantic Christmas comedy definitely took me by surprise. “Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Her last date with disaster? That of having accepted to work as Santa’s elf for a department store. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.”
Kate is played Emilia Clarck. The year before the movie takes place Kate got very sick she was in the hospital and all through the movie her Slovakia mother is still recovering from the scare of Kate almost dying. Her family seems as if it had fallen apart since Kate was in the hospital. Her father doesn’t like being home near their Mother because her mother is a bit on the non stop worrying side, and her sister is keeping a secret from her parents as well.
