Hillsborough Grand Staff Ensemble Spring Concert
The Hillsborough Grand Staff Ensemble was started as a way for school district staff to come together and share their love of music. It was also a way to give back to the community by helping a high school student pursue music as a career. A scholarship is given every year to one of these students.
The Grand Staff ensemble is made up of staff and friends of the Hillsborough School District under the direction of Nancy Ciacciarelli & Marc Angelone.
Their spring concert will be held on April 4, 2012 at Auten Road Intermediate School at 7 p.m. Suggested donations at the door are: $5 adults, $2 students/seniors (55+), $10 family.
Proceeds from the concert are awarded to a high school senior planning to pursue adegree in music.
Donations are always accepted for the scholarship. For more information email PattiRobbins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More About Auten Road Intermediate School
Initially built as an elementary school, Auten Road Intermediate School houses Hillsborough Township's fifth and sixth grade students.
Population growth in the 2000s forced the district to convert the school from elementary to intermediate students. Prior to the conversion, district elementary schools housed students in grades kindergarten through five, while grades six, seven and eight attended Hillsborough Middle School.
Students are divided into 11 fifth-grade teams and six sixth-grade teams, and receive the majority of their lessons from the team teachers. Two teachers lead the fifth grade teams, while three or four teachers lead the sixth grade teams.
In addition to reading, math, social studies, writing and science, the students take physical education every day. Sixth grade students have art, music, German and Spanish for one marking period each year, while fifth grades rotate between music, art, Italian, French and computers.
Principal Christopher Carey leads the school, which has the Mini-Raider has its mascot.
