A – B – C – Thanksgiving Break

  • Tonight is the last night to see the Drama Clubs performance of The Laramie project. The show begins at 7 pm. You do not want to miss this powerful piece of theatre. In 1998, 21 year old gay university of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was abducted, robbed, tortured and left to die, tied to a fence on the prairie outside Laramie Wyoming by two local young men because he was gay. The Laramie Project explores how the murder impacted the town through interviews with actual people involved with the victim and the murderers as they come to terms with how their ordinary town could produce two people filled with such hate.
  • To all members and friends of the French Club: We will be meeting today after school in room 119. Please see google classroom for details. See you there!
