Film screening and discussion attracted approximately 200 parents, students and educators.
On Thursday, April 28th at 7 p.m., Burlington and Wilmington Schools co-hosted a screening of the documentary film “The Race to Nowhere.” The screening, which was followed by a discussion lead by high school students, was well attended. The audience included nearly 200 parents, students, teachers and administrators and the film seemed to strike a chord with all in attendance. Superintendent Eric Conti addressed the crowd telling them that this screening was just a first step. “It starts the conversation,” he said. The Race to Nowhere was produced and directed by Vicki Abele, a former Wall Street lawyer and mother of three. Abele was increasingly concerned about the level of stress that her own children were experiencing. The suicide of a …

Leah Olsen scores twice in final 10:23 to propel Lady Devils to win.
Though it came down to a single goal, the Burlington High School girls varsity hockey team held strong in a victory over Wilmington Wednesday night. The Lady Red Devils beat Wilmington 4-2 at Ristuccia Arena. “When we came back and scored a goal, it kind of took the win out of their sails,” said Burlington head coach Kristen Thomas of the game. “We generated some offense a little more naturally. I’d like to see us not keep chucking it to the front of the net though. We have to work on finishing.” If the game against Burlington is a sign of things to come, Wilmington girls hockey head coach Joe McMahon is happily looking forward to next season. Wilmington nearly tied the score in the final minutes in the third period against a team they …

Burlington High School's band and chorus are preparing for Thursday's performance
The Burlington High School Band has had a busy year. So busy, in fact, that they only recently started practicing for Thursday's Winter Concert. With football games performances, a Halloween parade and their annual trip to the Salem invitational, the band couldn't begin learning the new music until just after Thanksgiving. Still, they're eager to pull it off and confident about the results. The winter concert has long been an annual performance and highlights the talents of the high school select chorus, chorus, band and jazz band. After a fall of football games and choreographed marches, it's a "shift from what we've been doing", said Band Director Matt Lovell. "It's tough music, especially under the gun like this," he added. On the …
