La Placa Dedication Concert
On November 18, 2015, Eddie Wilkin, with all his musical talents and gifts, shared them with a wide range of community members and students to dedicate a new piano to FHUHS and Mrs. La PLaca. The concert featured performances on the piano, and one guitar solo, and voice performances from students and community members. Band Teacher Janeea Choiniere, Erik Brown, Andrea Tester Charlie Cacciatore, Briley Blackbird, Lauren Langlois and Eric Ray all gave memorable performances. What a great night of music and sharing the gift of music!

The Annual FHUHS Winter band/Chorus concert will take place this Wednesday night, 12/9/15 at 6:30 PM in the FHUHS Gym. Please come out and support our awesome music department, as they share their musical gifts and talents with us! I have had the pleasure of sharing the halls with the music department, and their sound soothes my soul, daily! We are very lucky to have such a wonderful music department!
Congrats to Coach Willie Phillips and Coach P for their opening home, regular season Victory over Brattleboro! Both teams played great, hustle oriented boys basketball! Great team play, boys!
Spread the love week!
MR. Bruce, along with, Shine is asking anyone who is or has ever been a part of Slater Nation (parent, grandparent, alumni, teachers, coaches, community members, students, etc.) to share anything positive they have to say about anyone or anything in the Greater Slater community (once again, past or present) this week. They can do this through social media posts or handwritten notes, which is where the index cards come in.
Thanks to Allison Irons for her great Pictures, weekly!
