Several musicians from Newfound Regional High School were recently awarded Superior ratings at the New Hampshire State Solo and Ensemble Festival. The annual festival, sponsored by the New Hampshire Music Educators Association, and held this year at Keene State College, provides for adjudication settings for soloists and small groups. The NRHS students who received “A” ratings were; Makayla Pixley, who sang the title song from “Sound of Music”; Sean Holden, who sang “With You” from “Pippin”; Rebecca Turmel, who sang “Far From Home” from “Fiddler on the Roof”; Shannon Perkins, Bassoon, who performed “Polonaise” by Bach; a clarinet trio consisting of Sonja Bouchard, Shanley Camara, and Molly Croxon, who performed “Rigaudon” by Rameau; and a saxophone duet consisting of Ethan Pruett and Michael Doan, who performed “Duets #50 & #55” by Voxman.
Receiving “B” rating was Kristina Cogswell, who sang “With You” from “Pippin”.
All of the students performed before a Master Teacher, who evaluated and rated the performances.

As we get closer to Challenge Day, which is March 11, (next week!) let us remember one valuable condition of being human -- that of granting and asking for forgiveness. Today, make it your goal to forgive someone who has hurt you. Ask for forgiveness as well, if you have hurt someone else. Tell them you are sorry. Forgiveness is as much about helping yourself move on as it is for those you are forgiving! Oh....and GIVE AT LEAST 9 HUGS TODAY!!!!
On Thursday, March 5 the Student Council will be hosting the annual Blood Drive in the Gymnasium from Noon to 5pm. Appointments will be taken during lunches this week. Permission slips for 16 year olds who wish to make a donation can be picked up at that time. Students who have signed up to donate blood are reminded to drink plenty of water that day, eat a healthy breakfast, and have their classroom teacher sign their pass before reporting to the gym.
Any students wishing to participate in Challenge Day, who may not have been invited in the 1st round, may now pick up a permission slip in Guidance and return it to Mrs. Philbrick by Wednesday. Get on Board and don't miss this incredibly fun and worthwhile event!
