Here is what you need to know for the week ahead.

  •  The Jefferson Arts Committee's Community Band holds rehearsal Monday at Jefferson Township High School, 1010 Weldon Road in Oak Ridge. The session lasts from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and is held in the JTHS band room. The chorus room will be filled too: At 7 p.m., performers in the JTHS Winter Choral Concert will rehearse at the school. 
  • The Jefferson Township Board of Education holds a regular session Monday at 8 p.m. at the high school, 1010 Weldon Road. An agenda for the meeting had not been released by press time.
  • Jefferson Township Middle School celebrates the season with the annual JTMS Vocal Concert. The event takes place Tuesday from 6-9 p.m. in the auditorium of Jefferson Township High School.Should inclement weather force a cancellation, a snow day has been scheduled for Thursday at 6 p.m.
  • Friday, get your kids to show off their creative sides. Children are invited to bring their own looms and supplies and enjoy time making creations with others in a special Rainbow Loom Get Together at the Jefferson Township Library. This free, drop-in event takes place Friday from 2-3:30 p.m. in the Riker Room. Register at the library or online to participate.
  • Bringing together rock, jazz, folk, celtic and jam-band influences under one umbrella, From Good Homes forged its own, instantly lovable music, which prompted one critic to affectionately label the band’s blend of influences as “Hick-Pop.” Whatever one calls it, it's a popular mix in the area: Two of the band's three scheduled weekend shows at the Newton Theatre are already sold out. Don't miss your shot at seeing the third: Sunday at 8 p.m. is the one available performance. Tickets range from $29-$49 and are available online.
