Support the Class of 2014 and up your travel mug cool quotient.
It's cool to support your school. It's even better when it comes with caffeine. Jonathan Dayton High School's junior class is running a unique fundraiser: the sale of personalized 'Bulldogs' coffee travel mugs. Each mug is in the school colors along with a Bulldog pawprint, and they cost $10 each.

FMG and JDHS Grade 6-12 Bands perform music ranging from Sousa to Sabbath.
On Wednesday, Jan. 20, the audience at Jonathan Dayton High was in awe of the musical talent that lives within Springfield. The sixth grade band from Florence M. Gaudineer Middle School under the direction of Jay Laura took the stage and performed two challenging songs; you would never suspect this was their first big concert. Shortly thereafter, the seventh and eigth graders played a crowd pleaser, "The Final Countdown" by Europe. The middle school ended their set with the Jazz Band perfoming numbers like War's "Low Rider" (arranged by Laura) and Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va." Springfield's middle school has always had talented musicians, but this is the strongest band in over two decades. Mr. Laura is a phenomenal teacher and it's obvious…

"We have the same amount of wins that we had last year and the year before already" said Dayton goaltender Dan Dubeau, who saved 20 shots on the night. "The way we came out in the third period, down 1-0, we came out and just played Dayton hockey, like we always talk about, and that's exactly what we did". "We're not disappointed at …
