Dear Parents,

With Festival Disney being only one month away, we are in the final stages of our trip planning. Since we have to pay the balance for the entire music department by the end of next week, it is crucial that everyone’s balance is paid in full at this time. All payments are due by Tuesday, March 18 and can be made out to North Andover High School.

To prepare for the trip, we will be holding a MANDATORY TRIP MEETING on WEDNESDAY, March 19 at 7pm in the NAHS auditorium. All students and one parent/guardian MUST be present at this meeting. We will pass out all of the final paperwork that is required by the school, the trip company, and Festival Disney. We will also answer any questions that any of you have. Please make every effort to attend this important meeting.

We also have a number of upcoming events for the music department. On Saturday, April 5th, the Concert Choir and Scarlet and Black Singers will be performing at the MICCA Choral Festival in Norwood. Students will need to be at NAHS by noon, and our performances are at 2:15 and 3:00. We will return to NAHS around 7pm. The All-Town Band Festival will be held at NAHS on Tuesday, April 8th at 7pm in the gym. Finally, our Spring Concert will be on Thursday May 29th at 7pm in the auditorium. Please check the NAMA website ( for any updates.

As always, please feel free to contact either Mrs. Durkin or Mr. Smalley with any questions. We look forward to seeing everyone at the trip meeting on the 19th!

Best Regards,

Sara Durkin
Choral Director, North Andover High School
