REMINDER-OPENS TOMORROW NIGHT! The “Players” production of Runaway House is this weekend (May 9, 10 and 11) in the Dance Room. Tickets are $7 for students and $10 for adults)!

Here is a plot synopsis: Runaway House is a haven for young people in distress, and it is the setting for this play that deals dramatically and constructively with the growing problem of runaways. It is also the story of Bill and Linda, two young social workers, who work in the program. For them, Runaway House provides a common purpose in life which strengthens the deepening bond between them. This drama exposes the audience to both sides of this tale. The social workers experience anguish as they try to communicate with their young charges. The runaways are rejected and unable to go home, but afraid to be alone. Both worlds collide almost tragically when Linda learns that her own sister has run away from home.

TOMORROW! This weeks K-Pop Club will be a fun one. We will be doing some K-Pop Random Dance Plays, but for some added incentive to play the person who dances to the most songs to the best of their ability will win a prize. Prize TBA on Thursday at the meeting.

K-pop Club meets every Thursday from 3–4 in Mrs. Layson’s room. If you have any questions please email me at

REMINDER-POP COSTUMES INFORMATION-ALL COSTUMES NEEDED BY TUESDAY, MAY 14! Here is all the information we went over regarding what you need to get for costumes for Pop Go the Sailors:
Opener – “1999” by Prince, All Choirs
Bring on the 80’s and 90’s inspired outfits but also it is a song by “Prince” so you should add some purple to your costume.
Examples include:
A Purple shirt, purple T shirt, purple vest, or purple dresses. It could be also be a 90’s tracksuit with all the bright colors with some purple in it.
Bright colors (hot pink, bright yellow, orange …etc) and we encourage you to add accessories such as ties, scarves, gloves, hair accessories….
Let these colors below in this first picture be your inspiration!
Treble choir- Sister Act (Medley)
Nun like costume
You will need to get a long sleeved black T shirt, and you will wear your choir skirt and your choir shoes, also if you can find or make a big cross on a long chain or a rosary that would be nice. Perhaps a rope to tie around your waist would be great too.
We will provide you with nun habits and collars!
Anchormen- Boogie Wonderland
70’s style bands (disco) think wide bottom pants, white pants (don’t have to be white, just an idea), sparkly colorful or shimmery tops or tunic style top that you might find in your parents or grandparents closet and then high top shoes, and maybe even an afro wig.



Singers- Bohemian Rhapsody 
Odd black and white clothing with checkers or stripes. It could also be solid black and white but oddly put together. For example, a solid black tutu and striped or checkered tights or leggings, two different socks. Another example would be striped leggings or tight pants, white tank top and motorcycle black jacket.
Accapella -Rock and Roll is Here to Stay (Medley)
50’s costumes-Pastel colors, solid or polka dots.
Poodle/ circle skirts and shirts or Circle skirt dresses, legging and tops (see pictures)
Accessories like bandanas or short scarves tied around your neck or your hair. Pearls, wide belts, and flat sneakers shoes would also work.
