Research says that everyday 1 in 10 families are actively searching for a mattress. Go out and help us find those who are searching and invite them to the Southern Alamance on September 19
The Southern Alamance Marching Band had a very fun and successful band camp along with the start of afternoon rehearsals. I would like to thank all of the parents/boosters with their help ranging from serving food, collecting paperwork, building props, and even instructing guard. I feel that this is going to be a very successful and rewarding season.

Congratulations are deserved to the SAHS Wind Ensemble. The performed for the Central District-West Music Performance Adjudication (MPA) at Asheboro High School on Monday 23, 2015, They were judged by 3 judges who listened to the band's prepared pieces and gave a rating based on the criteria in their scoring rubric. A portion of the MPA performance is a Sight-Reading selection. The director and students are given a piece of music no one has rehearsed before, given 5 minutes to look over the piece without playing, and then perform for a judge. The rating system consists of 5 categories.
The Southern Alamance has received a rating of Superior for the last four years. We are all very proud of them and their accomplishments.
A special thanks to Dr. Adam Kehl (Elon University), Dr. Verena Mosenbichler-Bryant (Duke University),
Mr. Phillip Riggs (NC School of Science and Math), Dave Albert (retired, Leesville Road High School), Phil Homiller (Asheboro High School), Ed Kimbrough (Northern Guilford High School), and Music & Arts for their support preparing the band to be able to perform at the best of their ability. Thank you.
