Message from the Principal: The Happiness Advantage (Archor) talks about how we have a broken belief in that if we work hard to reach our goal then we will be happy. The truth is if you are happy and have a positive outlook on life, you tend to succeed more often than those who do not. The book goes on to discuss the advantage of the “Social Investment.” During times of stress, those that don’t retreat and/or hunker down alone to push through a difficult task but rather reach out for support and invest in friends and family, tend to have the greatest moments of success. So #thawknation, here we are in a world swarming with pressures and as we choose to build positive connections with peers, we promote our own successes. Join in this movement as we all become game changers who bring smiles to our peers and students’ lives. Click on title for more.
The ARHS Pep Band, lead by Ms. Amy Collins and Mr. Eric Vincent, performed in the recent Northborough Applefest Parade in some unseasonably warm temperatures. They shared an array of musical interludes and we were able to “Push It” all the way to the end. The Pep Band will perform again in Southborough for the Heritage Day Parade on October 8th as well as at the home football games. Go T-Hawks! Open House this past month was a huge success and we received multiple positive emails and parent comments that this is one of our best openings. Parents could feel and hear a wonderful balance between “Building Positive Connections” and maintaining “Academic Excellence.” We look forward to an equally successful Parent Teacher Conference event on October 16th. Our Math Team has already requested 7 Freshman and Varsity competitions along with the WPI invitation as they continue to push Math application skills beyond the classroom. The Fine & Performing Arts Department has begun the production of this year’s musical, “CHICAGO.” The production team held audition workshops for all interested students and posted the cast after auditions. 58 students are in the cast, 20 students in the Pit Orchestra, and even more will be involved backstage and behind the scenes. SAVE THE DATE – shows are December 6 – 8 @ at 7pm in ARHS auditorium. The Tiny Tomahawk Preschool opened its doors on Thursday, 9/13/18 for Parent/Student orientation. Our high school students have been preparing their lessons and eagerly awaiting their arrival. Reminder, our midpoint of first marking period is next week, October 2nd, so please plan ahead for Parent Teacher Conferences. Click on title for more.
