Students from our schools got together to say "Thank you!" to our dedicated Board of Education members: Dr. Cheryl Repass, Kathleen Dillon, Kristen Brumbaugh, Mike Grabowski, Steve Hogan, Michael Iacucci, Jonathan Payne, Leon Tucker and Amy Wilson.
The evening began with a preview of the Middle School musical, "Singin' in the Rain." The cast began rehearsals in mid-September and is already outstanding. Can't wait to see how awesome this show is when it hits the stage on Nov. 22, 23 and 24! (see cast photo to the left) Educators Elise Camp, Jean Marie Carroll and Stacey Sinclaire directed the performers: Aidan Babcock, Katie Chesher, Madelyn Ciravolo, Caleb Comas, Hannah Doles, Chloe Dykeman, Rudolph Fahnbulleh, Kelsey Froman, Erin Hibbard, Skylar Locke, Sloane Miller, Anna Pascarella, Mercy Payne, Silas Payne, Mady Pier, Belle Pimm, Katie Schauber, Kaylen Shauf, Ava Underwood and Melana Willard.
Student artists from the high school were on hand to demonstrate the latest learning standards for the arts and to introduce board members to contour drawing. Students demonstrating were Alex Babcock, Breanna Borgosz, Taylor Broussard, Chloe Collins, Gia DeFrank, Janna Deppe, Zach Flynn, Claire Gallucci, Retag Ibrahim, Aiden Montana and Morgan Travis, under the direction of educators Jonathan Woodard, Cheryl Simons, Kelly Bosco and Rich Cravatto.
