This year’s Art Show will be available for viewing the entire week of May 20 in the Atrium. There will be a special reception at 6:30 in the Atrium before the Academy Awards begin where we will celebrate the gifts and accomplishments of our students during the 2023-2024 school year. All are welcome to attend. If your student will receive an award, you should have received a paper invitation in the mail.

Advanced Drama Show Tickets
We are incredibly excited about this year’s production of Into the Woods! This is the first time the Advanced Drama class has ever chosen a musical, and we anticipate that the show will be very popular.  Accordingly, this year we are running online ticket sales, like what we do for the Spring Musical.  This year you will be able to choose and reserve seats online through Eventbrite.  The show is on May 23, 24, & 25. Please visit the school’s Into the Woods webpage for more ticket-ordering information.
