    Did you like your experience with our fall play Science, BOOM, You’re Welcome as a cast, crew or audience member?  Want to produce a play again or participate for the first time?  We will have two opportunities in the Spring to play again.  Auditions and applications will be in January but preparation is needed for the Spring shows.  Actors will need to present a monologue for auditions and crew will have a small project due with your application.  Join us next Tuesday 12/19 for an informational meeting on our Spring Play Number the Stars and our Touring company production.  We will meet in room 228 afterschool until 4:30pm.

    Do you decorating and snacks and birthdays? Do you like making people feel special? Do you like hanging out after school? If so, you should join locker decorating club! We meet every Friday with Ms. Bubna in the art room #204. See you there!
