  1. Student Musical

    [ By on April 11, 2014 ]

    This year's student-run musical or "Stu mu", Songs for a New World, is going to be an amazing show! Directed by two awesome seniors, the show will be a bit different from musicals in the past. This year is even more student-run with little help from any adults (including musical directors and pianists).

The event benefited organizations such as GEMS, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, USO, and RSPCA among others. Kids made different holiday gifts for children in hospitals, pots for flowers at the science barge, and baked goods for the Red Cross. Specifically, I was happy to see that little kids and their families took such interest in making a difference and aiding their community. Unfortunately, I was disappointed to see that the high school was not as well-represented. Though the event was on a Saturday ...
