St. Patrick's Day Parade Booster Wagon!
In a time honored tradition, the Tiger Pride Marching Band will march in the Holyoke St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 21. To show support for our wonderful students, SHMPA is coordinating a special horse-drawn booster wagon to follow the band in the parade.

Show your support as a sponsor of the
Music Booster Wagon:

Sponsors will have signage on the wagon for all to see! You'll not only show your support for these talented students, but you gain massive exposure to the
hundreds of thousands of parade-goers from around the Pioneer Valley who attend the parade and those watching television coverage from home! Call Elena Lamontagne at 896-6567 for sponsorship rates. Don't wait - space is limited!

March Music Madness is Coming
Plan to attend March Music Madness Concert on Tuesday, March 16 at SHHS to enjoy the musical talents of South Hadley's 4th grade, middle and high school students. Come early for a dinner treat and bake sale in the cafeteria. Ticket order forms will be sent home with students or download a copy today! Don't wait - only 600 tickets are available!

Congratulations Adrenaline!

Rachel Lee '10
performs with the SHHS Concert Choir and Vocal Roar.
"It's a lot of fun to be around other people who enjoy singing as much as I do," she says. "I really like working together as a group." Outside of the music department, Rachel's favorite class is Biology, which will serve her well as she goes on to study exercise science after high school. She is also an avid runner and member of the SHHS cross country team, as well as running long distance events in the indoor and outdoor track teams.


Many thanks to the volunteers who gave a helping hand this past month
