“Head mixMaster Grande” Sets Winterim In Motion

Editor’s Note: Mr. Scheibe is well-known on the LA campus for his signing “snow day” declarations. However, today “Head mixMaster Grande” delivered “a little Winterim jam – Five Ranks.”

Mr. Scheibe


Hello LA,

Here’s to a great, if slightly delayed start to Winterim. It’s an amazing time of year, and great thanks to all of those who have put such effort into organizing, inspiring, and trouble-shooting, particularly Tony Hawgood and Tanya Clark!

Speaking of slight delays, the 2-hour kind we experienced this season haven’t really delivered enough mojo for a proper snow-day song tribute, so it’s all been saved up from the Winter to be unleashed on Winterim.

Here’s 3 minutes worth:


  • We do not have any active engagement with either “tuba” or “Cuba” this year, but they make a sick rhyme
  • Unfortunately, the beats didn’t have sufficient endurance to make it to the all-important final line, which is, for the record: “use the correct level of SPF”
  • Recording is not meant to be mistaken for actual “music,” so all apologies to the estate of Ariana Grande

Enjoy the days,
Dan Scheibe

The lyrics are below:

Five Ranks

Yo, even the sketchiest weather conditions

Won’t interfere with our Winterim visions

No matter what Mother Nature will bring

These are a few of our Winterim things

Potter and Margraf will catch us some fishes

Quilting makes beautiful patterns with stitches

We go to Galapagos on airplane wings

These are a few of our Winterim Things

Play chess, learn scuba

Make your own tuba

Belize, DR

Or even Cuba

You like my chair,

Gee thanks just built it

I got some help

From Mister Matt Smith

First choice, I got it

Second choice, she got it

Third choice he got it

Fourth choice they got it

You like my boat,

Gee thanks, just built it

Fifth choice, OK

You got this, you got this

It’s a tradition in our Spartan Nation

Experiential LA education

We know before we start it will be all good

Cause it is led by Sir Anthony Hawgood

Seasonal affect can make you a sad guy

Yoga and martial arts make you a jedi

Faculty leaders create clever schemes

These are the pairs that I see in my dreams

There’s Fos

And Ryan

Raquel and


There’s Smith

and Dawson

That will

Be Awesome

There’s Liu

and Brescia



We’re get-

Tin human

With Bell

And Poulin

The Beard

and Igoe

But not





And K Po

You like

My vase

Gee thanks

Just fired it

In Clay and Kiln

McBride where’s Ms. Whit

Students acting like frequent fliers

Other schools are try-hard tryers

Passport my business card

Get back before it expires

I don’t mean to brag,

But Winterim’s got some swag

We lead the ISL

by doing Winterim well

What should I choose, Flip flops or boots

Wear proper footwear don’t try to be cute

Proper hydration and nutrients too

Guzzling Gatorade, water, or juice

Look at my neck, Look at my neck

Got a bad sun burn, but hey what the heck

That’s what you get, that’s what you get

Use the correct level of SPF

Best wishes for an amazing Winterim, everyone!
