Students in Mrs. Nagy's and Mrs. Granato-Wagner's 5th period English class have been working on a Medieval unit, where they have read stories about King Arthur, the Round Table, and Knighthood. After learning about the stages of becoming a knight (First you're a Page, then you're a Squire, then you're dubbed a Knight), students created their own shields based on their personality traits, took the Knight's Oath, were given a special Knight name, were dubbed Knights, and then had a Medieval Feast! It was a great time had by all, and they even had a special "friend" join in on the Knighting Ceremony!
We are extremely excited that one of our CD students will be playing the character, Lurch, at the Andrew High School’s theatre production of The Addams Family.
We are significantly proud of all the work that this student put into rehearsals, classes, and his part time job. It is an exhausting combination and we are so impressed with his work ethic.
Please, show your support and have a great social plan either as a family or students may want to do this as a friend social plan.
This production is appropriate for all ages and tickets can be purchased for adults ($8) and students ($6).
Performances are Thursday, April 28th and Friday, April 29th at
7:00 PM and on Saturday, April 30th at 3:00 pm.
We hope to see you there!
