LifeTouch will be on campus on January 28 for school photo retakes. Group 1 students can be excused from class to take photos from 10 am-noon. Group 2 students are invited to come to the LA gym for retakes between noon and 1 pm.
Note: it is critical for students and staff who missed picture day in the fall to have photos taken that day. Students who have not gotten a photo taken will have priority over students who want retakes, though retakes are possible if time allows. Please contact Jake Abbott (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
Mr. Braley will meet with students interested in after school drama productions, to plan productions from January through May. This will include information on the annual Maine Drama Principals One Act Festival. Various other productions (and shorter workshops) are under consideration, and will be developed based on interest from the student body. Students who would like to perform or work on tech should plan to meet on either Monday, January 11 or Tuesday, January 12 at 2:45 (please note new dates!) in Poe Theater to share input on proposed projects.
