Tri M Music Honor Society
It is time for your Tri-M Tuesday Music Fun Fact, brought to you by the Tri M Music Honor Society.  The longest piano piece of any kind is 'Vexations' by Erik Satie. It consists of a 180-note composition which must be repeated 840 times so that the whole performance is 18 hours and 40 minutes. Its first reported public performance in September 1963, in the Pocket Theater, New York City, required a relay team of 10 pianists. The New York Times critic fell asleep at 4 a.m. and the audience dwindled to 6 people. At the conclusion, one of the remaining six shouted 'Encore!'

ATENCIÓN, ATENCIÓN
All Spanish Club and Honor Society members, tomorrow Wednesday, December 11 we will have our Christmas meeting. Come celebrate with us enjoying some food, activities and music in room 101 right after school. We hope you join us! Gracias, Sra. Kinney

Hour of Code
Have you completed your Hour of Code yet?  There’s still plenty of time this week!  Another computing pioneer featured on Montini’s wall of Innovators is Alan Turing.  He was an English mathematician, computer scientist, and cryptanalyst. Turing was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, developing the modern idea of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general-purpose computer. Turing also led the British team that devised a computer that broke Nazi secret codes during World War II.  Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science as well as artificial intelligence.  What will you build with code?

Science Club Scientists:
