The Science Olympiad team led by Mr. Wadman and Mr. Largesse have hosted students each week as they prepare for the Framingham State Competition in March. Students have worked on different projects in Physics, Engineering, Chemistry, and Biology. Our history team continues to collaborate with the library and Big Group! The freshmen attended Big Group in the library to travel the Oregon Trail and wrote speeches to present to Congress. Each Big Group session always starts with a focus on mindfulness to foster a positive and supportive learning environment for the freshman class as they continue their four years together. Our Algonquin’s Tri-M Chapter 2137 sold Singing Valentine’s to benefit the VH1 Save the Music Foundation. The groups performed “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift, “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran, and “When I Fall In Love” by Nat King Cole. The group continued their singing after school sharing the power of music with our after-school programs. On Saturday, February 9th students from Algonquin's Jazz I ensemble joined Westborough High School's Jazz Band for the second annual Jazz Symposium. Each band prepared the same two pieces in advance and students had the opportunity to rehearse and play in mixed groups. The student musicians were given feedback and guidance from Dino Govoni, a saxophonist and professor at Berklee College of Music, and the other members of his quintet. After a brief break to support our students making positive connections and fostering our students’ networking skills, students were treated to an intimate performance by Dino Govoni's quintet. The event was funded in part by David French Music in Westborough. Algonquin has come together these past few weeks to celebrate some of our most recent graduates. Marie, also known as Algonquin’s Mayor, celebrated her recent graduation with her parents and educators. Ms. Tontodonato and Marie have had a wonderful connection over the years.

On January 15th, the Southborough Public Schools and Algonquin Regional High School will be bringing back an exciting concert to our instrumental music program: String-o-rama! The String-O-Rama concert is a vertical, audio snapshot of the instrumental music curriculum. This concert was created to give students and parents/guardians the opportunity to hear the progression of our instrumental music curriculum from grades 3-12. The audience listens to this concert in the same way that a person watches a cartoon sketch by flipping the pages of a notebook. A short performance with quick transitions between grade levels allows the curriculum to unfold in an “auditory” snapshot. The concert will be one hour in length and will feature short performances from each grade level String Orchestra and will conclude with a joint performance by all students, grade 3-12. The concert is at 7 pm in the Trottier Gymnasium. The Science National Honor Society students have been very busy with their peer tutoring hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays hosted in Mrs. Thompson's room D214. All students are welcome to get help for any science class. Thank you to our AWC for their continued tutoring and we are very excited to announce the start of peer to peer tutoring going on in our World Language Honors Society. Our T-Hawks are constantly stepping up to mentor and tutor peers, continuously creating a positive and supportive learning community! Click on title link for complete report.
