This year has definitely been one for the books. From mask wearing to social distancing, we have made it through one of the most challenging years yet. This year the Middle School students were unable to do a live theatre production. This was tough on the students, as we have so much talent just waiting to be showcased. We did, however, have a small group of students write their own monologues, direct and act in them; as well as design their own sets and costumes. This was an amazing opportunity for those involved and I am so proud and thankful to have been a part of it! Lately I have had many students asking if we will be able to do a live theatre production next year, and the answer is yes! Although I am still reading through scripts to finalize the production, I am already making plans for the Fall. Once we jump into the production we only have 2 months to work. It takes a lot to plan a production and I thought it would be great to get a head start. Due to Covid there will be many regulations and restrictions prohibiting us from certain forms of income that help make these shows such a success. With that said, I would like to announce our Middle School Drama Club will be selling Norwex from June 15th through June 22nd! This is not only an amazing opportunity for the Drama club to earn the total commission of the proceeds (35% of sales), but to help save the environment. Norwex’s mission is to drastically reduce the amount of chemicals in the home, something I feel is very important. I will host a zoom meeting on June 17th at 6pm. I will provide live demonstrations of the products as well as answer any questions you may have. The following links provide information about Norwex and the products. To place an order, click the shopping link below. The items will be shipped directly to your home.

Mental Health Virtual Parent Forum - June 1 at 6:30 Depression is associated with feelings of worthlessness and a lack of hope, but languishing is more like the absence of wellbeing.
Join us for our parent forum on June 1 with Dr. Jennifer Bashant. Click the link below to learn more. The video is about the New York Times article that discusses the concept of languishing.

Although the 9th Grade Global Studies classes of Mr. Katagiri and Mr. Thela, were unable to host a Medieval Fair Night this year, the students displayed their comprehension of the Middle Ages in Europe while presenting their projects and research virtually in class. After choosing a topic of interest, students conducted research to construct a physical project that represented the topic. As a modification to in-person presentations of exhibits, students constructed slide shows in which they imbedded research as well as videos and pictures demonstrating artifacts they created. Many of the people, ideas, technologies, and catastrophes from the period that had a great impact on the world today were represented. Students displayed a wide range of historical projects demonstrating food, architecture, disease, weapons, and much more.
