Dear Parents/Guardians of 10th Grade Students,
We will conduct state-mandated vision and hearing screenings for all 10th grade students on Thursday, December 5, 2019.
School-based vision and hearing screenings are intended to help identify common vision and hearing problems and do not serve as a replacement for regular comprehensive examinations by a doctor. If your child requires additional evaluation based on the results of the screening you will be notified in writing by the nurse.
If you would like your child excluded from the screening please submit a written request to the school nurse by December 2, 2019.
Please contact the school nurse, Cheryl Shea @ 978-448-6362 ext. 1018 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Senior, Taryn Emerle... All-National Choir
After making the district and all-state choirs, Taryn Emerle from Groton Dunstable Regional High School was selected for the 2019 All-National Honor Ensemble organized by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). The mixed choir ensemble, which is considered the “best of the best” from high schools across the nation, performed on November 9, 2019, in Orlando, Florida.
Taryn Emerle is currently a senior but her endeavor to become the first girl from Groton Dunstable Regional High School to make it into the All-National Honor Ensemble started early in her junior year auditioning for the Massachusetts Central District Choir. Upon being accepted into that choir with a perfect audition score, she was recommended for an audition for the Massachusetts All-State Choir, where she was again accepted, allowing her to audition for the prestigious All-National Honor Ensemble. Taryn Emerle has been a very active participant of the Chamber Choir led by Mr. Savoy. She has been a member for four years and now leads her section, as well as holding an officer position in the school’s Tri-M Music Honors Society. This choir is set to perform in Spain in 2020. Outside of the music program, Taryn is also an athlete. She is on the school’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams. She said of her experience in the All-National Honor Ensemble, “it was so eye opening [to be] around kids from all over the country and [from such] diverse backgrounds. We all couldn't have been more different, but we had music in common. It was a pretty powerful experience to hear everyone come together for the show.”
Background on the All-National Honor Ensembles
The 2019 All-National Honor Ensembles, selected through an audition process, consist of a mixed choir with 240 vocalists, a concert band and symphony orchestra with 119 and 121 instrumentalists respectively, the jazz ensemble with 20 instrumentalists, the guitar ensemble with 41 instrumentalists, and the modern band 16 with performers.
In Orlando, students rehearsed a challenging repertoire in preparation for performing under the direction of six of the most prominent conductors in the United States: Tesfa Wondemagegnehu (Mixed Choir); Soo Han (Symphony Orchestra); Emily Threinen (Concert Band); Todd Stoll with Camille Thurman (Jazz Ensemble); Bill Swick (Guitar Ensemble); and Scott Burstein (Modern Band). All conductors have received top honors in their field and spent several days rehearsing with students before the concert.
