The Fogelberg Performing Arts Center will be host to a new opportunity for the community to experience high quality performances at their doorstep with the Burlington Community Concert Series. Founded to provide a continuing program of performances intended to enrich the lives of the community through the performing arts, the series is an opportunity for the broader community to have access to and take enjoyment from the public spaces they support. The creation of the series was sparked by Dr. Eric Conti, Burlington’s superintendent of schools. With idea in hand, he approached John Middleton-Cox, Director of Performing Arts for the district and artistic director of Burlington High School productions. Middleton-Cox leads programming of this new series

Great news from DECA District Competition as our students had a very successful day against 450 student competitors in 26 different categories. All students did an excellent job conducing a business role play with an industry judge and had the opportunity to enjoy some down time with students from across the region.
Thanks to BHS Teachers Krista Anderson, Deborah Deacon, Sheila Kennedy, Stephanie Diozzi, Rachel Gould, Abigail Abbott, Leisel Smith, Daniela DeSousa, Jenn Scheffer, and Susan Disanto for helping students prepare with practice role plays .
Also thank you to Peggy Allegretto and Barbara Dembrowski in addition to Sheila Kennedy and Deb Deacon who were instrumental in helping run the entire conference and chaperoning our awesome students yesterday.
