Concert season began on November 21st with the BHS Music Department fall concert. The students, under the direction of Lyndsay Boysen and Susan Comstock, did a fabulous job as always! Our middle schoolers will be performing on Thursday, December 5th, at 7:00 pm in Veterans' Memorial Auditorium at BHS. Topping off the concerts of this season will be the Holiday Extravaganza concert, performed by the BHS music department on December 17th at 7:00 pm. There is a $5.00 admission charge to this one, so be sure to contact the school for tickets. This one usually sells out!
If you really want to get into the holiday spirit, the BHS Drama Department is performing King Wencelas on Friday, December 13th, at 7:30 pm and Saturday, December 14th, at 3:30 pm. This production will feature the Belchertown Youth Singers, a group of almost 50-strong elementary students who work with Ms. Comstock during the evening hours to sing and be a part of this play!
There are a host of other events going on in our schools this month. Check the district calendar for more information on the when and where!
Jean Brunelle, a seventh grade science teacher at JBMS, was contacted by construction workers at the new Easthampton Savings Bank this summer to retrieve an injured Great Horned Owl. After taking it to be rehabbed, she brought it to Lake Wallace on the old State School property to release it back to the wild today. More information and photos will appear on my next blog - stay tuned!
