Christmas came early for Altimira Middle School when Principal Will Deeths happily took delivery of a donated Yamaha baby grand piano from the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa last month. SMI PR Director Michelle Heston arranged the donation and Altimira wasted no time in incorporating the majestic instrument into the school╒s band elective program, taught by Carolyn Niehaus. Pictured is seventh grader Madeline Jaycox accompanying the band in a recent class.
