Little Shop of Horrors

Congratulations to the entire cast and crew of this musical. This past weekend, the gym was transformed into the set of Little Shop of Horrors.  Mr. Hoffman, Mr. Stout, and the entire cast put on a spectacular production. By having additional shows, understudies also had the opportunity to take the stage. This was a project full of passion and immense dedication. The Sunday matinee was well attended, and the moms in the audience were celebrated. Way to show your Titan pride!


Senior Field Day

The Class of 2023 went to Grant Valkaria Park for their Senior Field Day on Tuesday, May 16th. They played on the playground and enjoyed reminiscing and rekindling their childhood. Kickball, basketball, water games, and a color war with powder from the Color Run were also on the agenda.  Thank you to Ms. Griffith, Ms. Williams, Ms. Burke, and Ms. Amanda for chaperoning this event.  Thanks also to the wonderful bus drivers, Annette and Jeff Radsick. Lastly, thank you to Elysia Williams and her family’s restaurant, Jam Rock, for providing all the delicious Jamaican food. Everyone left the park exhausted, full and most of all happy.


Final Senior Activities

The next big event for Seniors is Friday, May 19th when the Class of 2023 will walk through the halls of Odyssey at the Eldron and Wyoming campuses. Then they will attend their Senior Breakfast and Graduation rehearsal.  The festivities will culminate with Commencement on Saturday, May 20th.  These photos will be in next week’s newsletter.
