Hallelujah - DJ Scaife & Ed Graves


Email from Varsity & Elan Singers Teacher, Eron Smith, to Auburn High School Staff:

I needed to share this production with you.  This is a link to a project done by DJ at Berklee College of Music in Boston.  He was recently chosen as the only student from the school to perform for the great Harry Belafonte.  As a freshman, this is a great accomplishment. DJ is representing us well!  I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Thanks for letting me share!

Eron Smith



After the amazing performance DJ gave at our high school graduation last year, no one should be surprised at this success.  


We are all so proud of DJ!

Project RED's nation wide survey analyzed what’s working in technology-transformed schools & shows how technology saves money when properly implemented.



Auburn City School is hosting a group with Project RED as they learn ways Auburn City Schools incorporates technology into the classroom, including the 1:1 laptop initiative at Auburn Junior High School.
