Cultivating a “culture of reading” at Harmony ALC


Shannon Bluhm, a student at Harmony, has immersed herself in books. She read a total of 100 novels this school year. (Linda Baumeister/Review)

How many books have you read in the last nine months?
Probably not as many as Harmony Alternative Learning Center student Shannon Bluhm.
Bluhm, a senior at Harmony ALC, recently completed her goal of reading 100 books over the course of this school year. And though Harmony reading specialist Dennis Fendt notes her accomplishment is a school record by far, he added that Bluhm isn’t the only student with reading fever.

North High’s Brandon Cayefano, left, and Jack Bonko wrote the script and are directing the acting in the Northern Lights Show Choir Extravaganza “Below Sea Level.”

Your assignment: to come up with a plot for a musical revue.
Sound easy? Well, consider you have to work in songs as diverse as “Matchmaker” from “Fiddler on the Roof;” “SOS,” the 1970s ABBA hit; the ‘80s rocker “Holdin’ Out for a Hero” and even a Beyoncé medley, just to name a few.
Fortunately for audiences, North High Show Choir performers Jack Bonko and Brandon Cayetano were up to the challenge.
