AHS kicked off the long weekend today with an epic Pep Rally! There were songs, pies, faux-fights, and so much school spirit! Video is linked. Hoping everyone has a safe and restful break! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1v5yOdTixdDbQJ23mzYux9kdGdNcHGye1/view?usp=drivesdk

Last night the football team was honored at the Western Massachusetts Football Officials Association Banquet. Only the captains, Coaches, and Athletic Director Last night the football team was honored at the Western Massachusetts Football Officials Association Banquet. Only the captains, Coaches, and Athletic Director were allowed to attend. Today our principal got a nice surprise visit from the entire team and the coaches. Yes, it is true they all fit in Mr. Blain’s office. What a great surprise… It might smell like a locker room now, but he actually loves it. Congrats to the players and coaches. Winning teams with great sportsmanship are hard to find, and Agawam can be proud that we have the right combination.
One more for U.S.A. day at Agawam High!! Hey, ECC, we’re waiting… 😉

They successfully auditioned against musicians from across WMass, and will get to perform in a special concert with a guest conductor at UMass Amherst. Students selected include Samuel B, Sean C, Abigail D, William G, and Madison P, Nicholas N, and Amy V. They also looked great on Pajama Day! What awesome school spirit!
Gabe Rua and Nick Nguyen took time out of their busy schedules by volunteering as buglers to play "Taps" as part of Granger School's Veterans Day celebration yesterday. So many of the veterans went over to shake their hand and say thank you to the boys. Thanks to Gabe and Nick for being a big part of what makes AHS such a special school.
Fall Concert The fall concert performance was held last Thursday. Our Percussion Ensemble, Concert Choir, and Wind Ensemble were as usual… outstanding. All of the selections were amazing!
