A new Arlington High School alumni group has been formed to raise money for Spy Ponder teams.
The group is separate from the long-established AHS Alumni Association.
"It is with great pleasure and pride that the Spy Ponder Alumni Association has been established to support all student athletes at Arlington High School," a news release received June 7 said.
"Our goal is to expand our athletic program while developing an increased sense of school spirit and pride. We plan to support our student athletes through fund raising, scholarships and internship opportunities.
"We hope this will provide all our athletes with opportunities to build on their future successes.
The group is reaching out for new members. For an annual fee of $25, the group says you will be able to stay connected and keep track of all AHS teams, connect with old friends and remain a part of your community.
For more information, see www.spyponderalumni.org
The new group is taking applications for membership on its Board of Directors. If you would like to apply, applications are available at the high

"What doesn't come across in the superintendent's budget," she said, "is that Arlington is dealing with a new evaluation system, new curriculum standards, higher enrollment. Why don't we see massive innovation?" The changing landscape brought about by state mandates is why. She said she continues to run into residents who think the schools have 4,200 students. "We have 5,200," she emphasized. Student enrollment has increased in Arlington by 1,000 since 2000. Paul Schlichtman added some cru ...
These residents realize that when our selectmen remove one of the 4 existing corridor travel lanes and narrow 2 of the remaining 3 lanes, traffic congestion will increase. They further realize traffic congestion will become even worse, because our population is growing and the town is also undertaking an aggressive long-range effort to attract many tourists to Arlington. Selectmen, however, have maintained that traffic congestion will decrease, which would make this corridor the only major ro ...
This trip is an amazing opportunity and will be attended by more than 3,000 students from around the world. For several months, we have been preparing by researching our assigned nation, Azerbaijan and writing our position papers. However, this incredible experience doesn't come cheaply. We're hoping to raise money in order to offset the large cost of the trip (which includes conference fees, transportation, hotel, food, etc.). We would greatly appreciate it if you could make a small donati ...
Finding roots of Irish stage Lourenco researched "The Mai" and another one of Carr's plays and found similarities between them. Lourenco believes that Carr wrote the plays as a means to confront her own mother's early passing. With an academic focus on Irish drama, Lourenco has been involved with numerous Irish plays over the years. She asserts that characters and situations have a greater familiarity to her personally in a way that American or British plays do not. Only Irish plays show the ...
But today, Vision 2020 is facing some big questions, the biggest of which is, "What's our purpose now?" Clearly, the organization is still functioning, but is having trouble drawing enough citizen commitment to keep working as it was intended. Just go to the website, arlington2020.org, and one of the first things you see is this statement, "Most of the material here, except for the Reservoir and Fiscal subsites, is a couple of years out of date." Hmmm. Not very visionary, I guess. I'm not bla ...
Highrock consistently raises money that is donated back to the local community and also many of the members of the church regularly donate their time and resources to benefit our town. A few things you may not already know: - Highrock Church gave the largest donation to the Arlington Food Pantry that it has ever received; - Highrock supports a social worker for the Town of Arlington after state aid to cities and towns cut this position; &nb ...
Last August, I took on the responsibility of being the principal of record for a small early childhood school that operates out of the central administration building in Lowell. Since then, we have added three classrooms and our enrollment has doubled. Our little school has grown to serve 207 students, and more than half of the children who are in attendance today were not enrolled last Oct. 1. Because of the transient nature of the population, the school has a significant number of homeless ...
