Each year the Massachusetts Music Educators Association hosts the Senior District Music Festivals in five regions across the state. Seventy musicians from Concord-Carlisle High School auditioned for the Eastern Senior District Band, Chorus, Orchestra and Jazz Band on Saturday, November 22. The Festival will take place January 9 and 10 at Boston University. The following Carlisle students will be participating:
Sonia Boor - Violin*

* These students have been recommended for All-State
The Boston Globe’s All-Scholastics Fall 2008 feature in last Sunday’s newspaper listed outstanding high school performers on fields, courses and courts throughout Eastern Massachusetts. The following Carlisle athletes were included:
Ben Verrill – Boys Soccer All-Star
• Robyn Beavers, formerly of Woodbine Road, is a first-year graduate student in the Graduate School of Business MBA program at Stanford University, California. Former fellow Carlisle School classmates in the same program at Stanford include David Simpson of Judy Farm Road, first year, and Erin Hult of Audubon Lane, second year. The three graduate students attended The Red Balloon Nursery School together as well.
• Belmont Hill School is pleased to announce that the following students from Carlisle achieved academic distinction for the first marking period of the year:
Andrew Lind of Mill Pond Lane, a twelfth grader, achieved High Honors.
Matthew Gardner of Lowell Street, a seventh grader, achieved High Honors.
• Jennifer A. Morin graduated from the Army ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) Leader Development and Assessment Course, also known as “Operation Warrior Forge,” at Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Washington.
The 31 days of training provide the best possible professional training and evaluation for all cadets in the aspects of military life, administration and logistical support. Although continued military training and leadership development is included in the curriculum, the primary focus of the course is to develop and evaluate each cadet’s officer potential as a leader by exercising the cadet’s intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and physical stamina. The cadet command assesses each cadet’s performance and progress in officer traits, qualities and professionalism while attending the course.
Cadets in their junior and senior year of college must complete the leadership development course. Upon successful completion of the course, the ROTC program, and graduation from college, cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army, National Guard or Reserve.
Morin is a student at Norwich University, Northfield, Vermont.
She is the daughter of James Morin of Maple Street and Jean Morin of Timothy Lane. Morin is a 2004 graduate of Concord-Carlisle High School.
• As part of their preparation to join Boy Scouts next summer, boys from the fifth-grade Webelos Den of Cub Scout Pack 135 visited the Carpenito land in Townsend on Saturday where Boy Scout Troop 135 was having an overnight camping trip.
