In other news,this past weekend our classmates performed the musical they have been working on, High School Musical, with Michaiah Galvin as Troy and Gracie Schmidt as Gabriella. They performed this past Friday and Saturday, and let me tell you they were amazing! Everyone who was in it did great! We were able to watch a small part of it at school Friday, and then I saw several of my other classmates watch the full thing that evening.

Thanksgiving is fast approaching everyone. We all know what comes with Thanksgiving: good food and Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving people line up at all the major stores to be first to get to the things they want that are on sale. Black Friday is a day of epic sales for everyone that mostly occur from midnight to the early morning. Also, family comes with Thanksgiving. Relatives travel long distances to celebrate and be thankful together for everything they have. It is a time of love, gratefulness, and celebration for what we have in life.We also have a lot of good food from turkey, yams, and sweet potatoes to pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and stuffing.

Tonight is freshman orientation for those moving into high school next year. It starts at 6:00 at the Junior High PAC (Performing Arts Center). Upcoming freshman learn about the different opportunities for us and the classes that are valuable to our learning at the high school. We learn which classes are suggested and which are preferred for you to take. If you are going to be a freshman next year, come and listen to the information provided about your year coming up.
