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 schoolâ•’s band elective program, taught by Carolyn Niehaus. Pictured is seventh grader Madeline Jaycox accompanying the band in a recent class.
