The Colchester School District Vision and Strategic Plan 2012–2017 stresses our clear intent to foster opportunities for our students to interact with our community; Pathway E of the plan is Parent, Community, and School Partnerships Among Lifelong Learners, and Pathway C is Learning Outside Our Four Walls.
To that end, the Colchester High School Jazz Band will take part in the Flynn Jazz Festival on Tuesday, March 12 at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts—an event from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. that is open to the public and will include performances by several area high school jazz bands.
As part of its artist-in-residence program, Union Memorial School will welcome Stuart Paton of the Burlington Taiko Drummers March 13–19, culminating with a student performance in the Colchester High School gymnasium on Tuesday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m.
And what is a good way to showcase the quality of a music program and highlight students’ progression and development in their study of music? With a free concert!
Colchester School District will hold concert on Saturday, March 16 at 11:00 a.m. in the Colchester High School gymnasium that will feature bands from Malletts Bay School, Colchester Middle School, and Colchester High School. This free concert—including MBS’s fifth-grade band, CMS’s sixth-grade band and seventh- and eighth-grade band, and CHS’s ninth- through twelfth-grade band—will demonstrate our students’ skills and talents and offer a peek at the range of the district’s band programs. (There will also be a 50/50 raffle and items for sale to support instruments, materials, scholarships and music education programs to all of your schools.)
