This program was named T.I.E.S. which stands for Teaching, Interacting, [and] Encouraging, Students. READ MORE »»

    “Comedy of Errors” has no errors

    Jordyn McConnaughey, Social Media Editor

    March 25, 2015

    On Friday night I went to see the ever-anticipated spring play, A Comedy of Errors. The play was directed by the drama teacher, Ms. Amanda Malo, and also had a smaller cast than most plays in the past. I had heard very good things about the play from my classmates who had seen it earlier, and had very high expectations. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The play followed the story of two sets of identical twins from different towns, who arrived in the same place and kept getting mistaken for one another. READ MORE »»

    “Make the Music Stop” raises money for good cause

    This past Monday, March 23, the song “Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie began echoing through the hallways in between every passing time throughout the day. This isn’t the school just trying to promote positive vibes, it is a fundraiser put on by the Freshmen Class Student Council, to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation. The freshmen are asking the freshman campus to donate $500 and the 10/12 building to donate $1,500 in order to “Make the Music Stop”, meaning in order for the song to stop playing the student body needs to raise that much money, if not the song will continue to play until the end of the school year.
