Visual Arts and Performing Arts
On Tuesday, May 18 (time and place TBD), the arts rejoice as we celebrate accomplishments and awards with a special event, Festival of the Arts. We will begin with the official induction ceremony of the National Art Honor Society and Tri-M Music Honor Society, recognizing our students for their contributions of service through the visual and performing arts. The Festival continues with two additional dimensions: the premiere of the Annual Fine Arts Show and the Senior Showcase. We will share more details in the weeks to come.

The 2020 Winter Musical: Matilda.
Matilda is the story of an extraordinary little girl with extraordinary powers. The daughter of abusive parents, Matilda finds refuge in library books, which she reads quickly and in creating her own stories. Things are no better at school, where Matilda also must face a tyrannical and cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. Matilda finds companionship in her teacher, Miss Honey, though well-intentioned, is shy and fragile. Brave little Matilda knows she has to stand up against the adults in her world, and in doing so, discovers her own remarkable powers. Matilda’s bravery teaches Miss Honey and her classmates an important lesson–that even though life can be hard, “nobody but me is gonna change my story.”
