Distracted Driving Awareness Week

In the past month, nearly 90% of drivers engaged in risky behavior behind the wheel. Are you one of them? Each day, 10 people die in distracted driving related collisions. No distraction- whether texting or talking on the phone - is ever worth the loss of life on the roadway. These senseless deaths can easily be prevented if drivers simply choose to focus on the core task of driving when behind the wheel. This week is DISTRACTED DRIVING AWARENESS WEEK. Eagles, please save a life and #DROPITANDDRIVE.

Fine Arts

Hey, Eagles!

What are you doing this Thursday?!? Come watch The Bully Plays performed by Lakes’ Studio Theatre Classes! The Bully Plays entails 8 short plays that show different experiences that involve bullying. Come watch The Bully Plays in the theatre classroom at 4 and 7 PM on Thursday, April 26 for free!

See you there!


Get Involved in the Fall Play!

The fall play next year is a sci-fi/horror dark comedy that takes place IRL and in a video game. By the end of the show, reality and virtual reality blur and nobody is really sure what’s alive and what’s not…

If this interests you, come audition! Auditions are Thursday, May 10th - you can sign up for an audition time on the call board outside the theatre classroom. You will need to fill out the audition form, which is available at

If being onstage isn’t for you, you can sign up to be backstage! You can help with the set, costumes, lights, and/or sound - just sign up to be on those crews on the ‘Stage Crew’ call board outside the theatre room - you can’t miss it on your way to lunch!

If you’re interested in being a production leader, please contact Mr. Mozes directly.

Any questions? Contact Mr. Mozes

Looking forward to working with you!
