Just earlier this week, Warren Haynes made Grateful Dead history by playing Jerry Garcia’s “Tiger” guitar for the first time since the Dead’s final performance in 1995. Haynes recently spoke to us about the experience, saying:It was quite an honor to be able to play Tiger for the first time since Jerry passed. When I picked up Tiger the day before at rehearsal, it still had the same strings that were on it from the last time Jerry played it.Playing that music, with the Symphony and the bonus set with Melvin… playing it at Red Rocks for that crowd on his birthday. It was very emotional for everybody, and I think it was one of those nights that just fell into place. It was very magical.The magic will continue come next week, when Haynes brings his Symphonic Tribute to the Rumsey Playfield in New York’s Central Park. Haynes has just announced that he will once again play the Tiger guitar before an orchestra, only adding to the momentous occasion.The show will also feature an ‘extended encore,’ which will see Haynes teaming up with Eric Krasno and Marco Benevento for the performance. The encore will be without the orchestra, focusing on Grateful Dead-type improvisation in honor of the late Garcia. Tickets for the show can be found here.[Photo via Warren Haynes’ FB Page]

Other topics discussed during the meeting included programs like the ‘Ready, Set, Program.”APS Superintendent Dr. John VanWagoner said the ‘Ready, Set, Programs’ including swim, create, jump, and skate will stay but there will be changes due to some issues.“Some of our school, and teacher concerns were the transportation, but we wanted to make sure that it was kept. ‘Ready, Set, Swim’ was one of the key ones that we wanted to keep. We’re continuing ‘Ready, Set, Swim’ for our second graders. We’re also going to continue, ‘Ready, Set Jump,’ and our ‘Ready, Set, Skate.’ Those will actually be one time,” Dr. John VanWagoner said.Another program that will benefit Alpena schools is adding the ‘DK’ Program to more elementary schools.The program helps in the first year of a two-year kindergarten program learn target skills including letter sounds, writing their name, identifying objects like colors and shapes.Director of CTE and Early College, Joyce McCoy said a form would be handed out soon for parents to decide to put their child in the ‘DK’ Program.“We’re starting kindergarten registration in the next couple of weeks. You can see on both sides, but a child going in the dk is a parent’s choice. We can recommend it, but in the in it’s a parent’s choice. We’re going to talk to them about this 3rd grade-reading program, and what this might mean. We find it to be less stressful for a student to be in ‘DK’ then to get held back in the third grade. Research shows that holding a student back in the 3rd grade is the beginning of a not so good school career down the line,” McCoy said.Other topics included the APS budget.The board hopes to add more security cameras, books, indoors and outdoors wireless access points, upgrade phones, and other network switches, add chrome books, and more desktops.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Public Schools, APS, Ready Set ProgramsContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena Community College Help Raise Funds for the Huron Humane SocietyNext Early College Students Set to Graduate in May
