Potluck Supper & Summer Meeting

The summer gathering of the Mohawk Music Association will be on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 6:00 pm at Sherry and John's home. This potluck supper and meeting is for all current and prospective members of the Mohawk Music Association and their families.

We eat first (always delicious!) and then take a look at the upcoming year and start making plans for the soon-to-be-here Mohawk Open House, Booster Day Football Game pie sale, and the Ashfield Fall Festival baked potato sale.

Below is a copy of an email invitation from MMA Secretary (and Middle School Music Director) Gina Glover:
Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer. Believe it or not, the first day of school is just a few weeks away. That means it is time for our fist Music Association meeting of the 2014-2015 school year. This years kick-off meeting will be held next Tuesday, August 12th at our MMA president Sherry Taylor's house. The meeting will begin at 6:00p.m. and everyone is invited to bring a dish to share. The directions to Sherry's house are below. We would love to see as many of you as possible! We will be discussing our fundraising plans, as well as a schedule of events for the year, and plans for trips and performances from our music directors. If you have not attended a meeting - now is the perfect time to get involved and support music at Mohawk! If you have ANY questions please feel free to contact me!
Thank you,
Gina Glover

Music Field Trip

[Update 7/12/2014: The field trip was approved by the Mohawk School Committee at their 7/9/2014 meeting.]

Screenshot of an excerpt from the Field Trip Request Form to be voted for approval at the Mohawk School Committee meeting (agenda) on Wednesday, July 9. Complete form may be read in the MTRSD Complete Packet 7-9-2014.pdf (6.8 MB pdf file), pages 52-53.

Music Director Scott Halligan is requesting permission to participate in the Worldstrides Heritage Performance Music Festival in Williamsburg, Virginia, from April 23-26, 2015 (during April vacation.)

From a post on the Mohawk Music Association facebook page:
Just a reminder, the MMA does not have a regular meeting in July. However, on Wednesday, July 9th at 7pm, at the full School Committee meeting in the Superintendent's Conference Room (the old chorus room), Music Director Scott Halligan will be requesting approval of next year's overnight Music Field Trip. This meeting is open to the public and community input is welcomed. If you would like to share how educationally important you think these competitions are, or have financial issues you would be willing to share, or have any other comments regarding this trip or any school field trips in general, please come and share your thoughts. Thank you!
