Notes from the schools

13 Nov

I’d like to pass along three reminders from the schools today, starting with the Webster Thomas High School fall play.

the-admirable-crichton-eshhk4cp.luzThis year’s production is The Admirable Crichton by Sir J.M. Barrie.

When an aristocratic family and their servants are trapped on a deserted island with no hope of rescue, they try to rebuild their rigid Edwardian society. Will the same people be servants? Will the same person be master? The play, from the writer of Peter Pan, is a whimsically funny, and sometimes tragic. exploration of the role of social classes.

The Admirable Crichton will be performed this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m at Webster Thomas High School, 800 Five Mile Line Road. Tickets will be available at the door.

unnamedPTSA calendars are still available, and they’re still just $5 each!

This is a great way to stay in the loop for all of the district’s special events. It’s filled with student artwork and has lots of space for you to add your own events and reminders.

The calendars are available at Hegedorn’s Market, and at school events all through the fall. If you purchase your calendar at your school event, all proceeds benefit your school’s PTSA.
