  1. Welcome & Introductions
  2. Fine Arts Department update: 
    1. Transcripts for scholarships need to be sent in to the Fine Arts Department for last year’s scholarship winners. Last year was more lenient because it was a difficult year; need to make a grade requirement and can extend a semester. If a student took the year off, they can extend until they attend.
    2. Omicron surge has adjusted winter plans. As of now, this is the schedule:
      1. Southeast District postponed but rescheduled to April 8-9 at Brockton High School
      2. Coakley Middle School concerts will be recorded and broadcast vs. in person event due to inability to safely distance. Concerts will be taped end of Jan/early Feb and be broadcast on NCM
      3. Email sent to schools for the jazz classic and how many would be able to attend. Five or six schools are able to attend. Some have declined, programs not ready for festival or not allowed to perform due to district policies. Looking to hold in COVID safe manner. Still reaching out to determine if would be possible – tentative date Thursday Feb 17
      4. All-state concert is still planned for Symphony Hall but not a lot of updated info at this time. They won’t have hotel – day rehearsal and concert
      5. MAJE Finals still on the books – reserved the space for March 26
      6. Fine Arts Festival April 30 – Norwood 150th committee will help promote
      7. Camp reached out to see if we will be interested in going this year. Reaching out to understand protocols
  3. Open roles for 2022-23 – President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. Need new board roles to be filled along with other areas such as fundraising, event coordinators and membership. Can recruit at the Fine Arts Festival. Will look to create a written slide to show before concerts on NCM. Anyone interested in volunteering for a role, please email


The next meeting will be Feb. 9
