Not only does the magic continue to improve, but something else drives some couples closer while forcing others apart. When a mysterious stranger reveals more truths, who will choose love and who will choose fame? Can even a magician find a balance between romance and heart- break?

PO Box 325, Norwalk, IA 50211 i 8th Grade Marching Band Performed at Varsity Game The Norwalk 8th Grade Marching Band performed a very successful show Frida) Oct. 18, during the last home varsity football game. They began their show entitled "Songs from Motown," which included "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing" and closed the show with "Respect," which was recorded by Aretha Franklin. This was the first experience of marching for this group. They learned the basics of marching including: how to march 8-5, mark-time, right face, left face and about face (while playing their instruments at the same time). They began working on this show the first day of school in August. The drill design was written by Nick Menke (Norwalk High School Band Director). This includes where a student stands, marches to specific spots on the field and how many steps it takes to get there while the music is being played. All the students come into 8th grade not understanding any of these basic skills and have to be taught from the beginning of how to read the design charts. By the time they Complete the final show, the students have the basics to get them ready for Norwalk High School's marching program. This year's 8th Grade Band worked very hard to learn everything that they needed to ha@ a very successful performance. Several people were involved to facilitate this success. The directors for the 8th Grade Band are Jeff HeRman and Ken Huen. Carrie Krupke is the lesson teacher and helps in many different areas for the Norwalk Middle School bands- taking pictures throughout the seaso/a, capturing many moments of the performance through her lens. Lastly, the directors would also like to thank Kim Stageman, who helps with our autistic student Mitch Arbogast. She marched with him the whole season and had special help on the night of the performance from Norwalk's Alexandria Bennett (senior) who volunteered to help Arbogast when Stageman was unavailable for the performance.
