New School Website

The new website for the Mohawk School District and the schools launched today. Still a work in progress, but a promising start.

27 Aug 2014: A New Website! (well, almost) 
Welcome to our new and improved website! We're not quite ready for prime time, but we're furiously working to retire the old site and have this new one complete and ready. Please have patience as we finish construction.
Take a look:

Back To School

Late August sunflower blossoms brighten the side of a barn.

It's hard to believe that classes start on Wednesday. Mr Halligan and Ms. Glover are excited to begin preparing their student for some great music performances this year!

The Mohawk Music Association is also ready to get the school year underway. We are planning two fundraising events this fall:
  • Pie Sale at the Booster Day Football Game (Friday, October 3 at 7:00 pm, vs. Pioneer Valley Regional School)
  • Baked Potato Sale at the Ashfield Fall Festival on Columbus Day weekend (Saturday, October 11 & Sunday, October 12, 10 am - 5 pm both days)

If you want to help at either event (or both!) please come to our next meeting on Tuesday, September 9, 2014 at 6:30 pm in the school library or stop by our information table at the Mohawk Open House on Thursday, September 18 in the evening (time to be announced.)

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
