School Daze Week of October 24, 2016

Hi Everyone,

 I would like to start off this week's blog by congratulating the 40 instrumental and vocalist from our music department for being risk takers by auditioning for the New Hampshire Music Educators Jazz All State Festival .  In less than 24 hours from this blog the results should be in and we will know who will represent the Alvirne High School Music Department at this prestigious festival come February 2017.

This week is the FINAL half time show for the Alvirne High School Bronco Marching Band and Colorguard. If you posted your child's performance schedule on the refrigerator with your favorite magnet you know that this Friday October 28, 2016 is senior night and with that is the following reminder.

The “special night” will be Friday October 28,   2016 when AHS v. Exeter

ALL parents of senior band/colorguard members need to  meet in the cafeteria by 5:45 p.m. for the memorable picture of a life time !  Afterwards you and your senior band or colorguard member will proceed to the football field where introductions will be made beginning at 6:20 p.m. If there should be a time and/or place change your senior band or colorguard member will be notified and the information will be on the web site, FACEBOOK, CHARMS and Portal email.

Please check the web site www.ahsmusic.org and/or Alvirne High School Friends of Music Facebook page, CHARMS or the AHS Music Dept. Portal for updates or pertinent information. Your senior band or colorguard member will be given an senior night information form for you to fill out and return to my attention by Wednesday October 26, 2016.  In fact, I'll do one better and include the senior night form  below :-)

This Friday night will be  EXTREMELY busy as the 8th grade step up night that was postponed last week due to the inclement weather is rescheduled for our final game  and it's also our annual Halloween Band and Colorguard celebration. Hopefully, your child is thinking of  a unique costume for the evening. 

Speaking of Halloween Band and Colorguard celebrations. This is another reminder that the annual Woburn Halloween parade is taking place on October 30, 2016. 

Here is the final information

The 62st Woburn Host Lions Halloween Parade

SUNDAY OCTOBER 30, 2016

ARRIVE AT ALVIRNE: 10:00   A.M.

ROLL CALL TO BUSSES: 10:45 A.M.

NB. The staging area for the parade is the parking lot at the Showcase Cinema/Holiday Inn Select Complex Canal Park Road off Main St. (Rt. 38 at Rt. 95) in Woburn.  The parade ends at Arlington Road.

This parade is on Rain or Shine.  
 This is a GREAT parade and a lot of fun, it is my hope that many of our band and colorguard parents can come out and support us.  

Also, I know you have been getting inundated with  FUNdraising materials. Please remember to "pick and choose".  We are not expecting you to do every single FUNdraiser that is presented.

OK - as I promised here is the information that I will be giving to your senior band/colorguard member tomorrow. If you would like to fill it out before hand and send it in with them or scan it back to me please feel free.

Have a wonderful week!
Mr. B
