On March 31st, all middle school
students were surprised with a
“You Matter” Anti-Bullying concert
performed by Season 13 American
Idol alumni, Casey McQuillen.
The “You Matter” Tour was an
hour-long interactive concert of
Casey’s songs and stories.
Throughout the performance, she
showed students how she grew
from an insecure middle schooler
to a 23 year-old aspiring pop star
who isn’t afraid to dream.
Additionally, Casey used her
journey on American Idol to
demonstrate the benefit of taking
risks, experiencing failure, and
determining your own definition
of success. She left the students
with the most important message
of all: You Matter!

SMHS SWAG NIGHT
Student Arts Festival at Southbridge Middle/High School an Overwhelming Success
The Students with Artistic Gifts Festival (“SWAG”) was well received for the second year in a row. Hosted by Southbridge Middle/High School’s Fine and Performing Arts Department, the festival featured fine and digital artwork, poetry, as well as chorus, band and theatrical performances from schools across the district. The annual festival, which took place Tuesday, March 8 from 4pm to 9pm, has replaced Music in the Round, which used to occur every other year, and only included music performances.
“Our students have many talents,” says Miriam Kranz, SMHS Theater Program Advisor. Dr. David Garcia, Fine and Performing Arts Department Head for Southbridge/Middle High School, agrees: “SWAG allows for more students to showcase their various talents because it’s inclusive of so many artistic genres. We hope to see the festival continue to expand from year to year.”
Feedback from parents and community members was overwhelmingly positive, and the attendance surpassed last year’s inaugural SWAG event.
Quotes from students:
Nitzmarie Cintron-Santos, senior, says “She really liked how they had different events like art and poetry at the same time.”
William Rodriguez-Otero, Jr., a freshman who had solos with both the concert band and jazz-rock ensemble said, “I thought all the musical groups sounded really good.”
"The Middle School and High School chorus was amazing. I loved the song choices." - Denver Grade 6
"It was so cool to see my art on Swag night!" - Adelina Grade 6
