Drama club at Keppel Academy to perform Thursday, November 17th at 5:00pm

Ryan Nelson

Congratulations to the Drama Club at Keppel Academy on their great performance of Bedtime Stories (As Told by Our Dad)(Who Messed Them Up) on Thursday, November 17th at 5:00pm in the auditorium.  

Play Details: It's Dad's turn to tell his three rambunctious kids their bedtime stories, but when he gets fuzzy on the details, the classics get creative: a prince with a snoring problem spices up The Princess and The Pea, The Boy Who Cried Wolf cries dinosaur instead, and Rumpelstiltskin helps turn all that pesky gold into straw. You may think you know your fairy tales, but not the way Dad tells them.

Mesquite Elementary Youth Council practices their video journalism skills

Ryan Nelson

The RISE students at Mesquite Elementary elect grade level representatives to the program's Youth Council.  The Youth Council has the opportunity to practice their interviewing and storytelling skills by producing the program's news cast.  With the help of the program staff and parent volunteers the students document the program's news, interview staff and students, and even create very imaginative commercial breaks.  Great job Mesquite Youth Council!

Tumbleweed Elementary students practice "Paying It Forward"

Ryan Nelson

The students in the RISE After School Program at Tumbleweed have been learning about different acts of kindness and caring. We started a program in which students are in charge of collecting pennies.  A plastic 16 oz jar is provided to each student, the students decorate them any way they choose. These jars are called the "Pay it Forward" penny jars.  Nothing more than pennies is accepted or allowed. This is not a fund raiser. These pennies are collected weekly by the Program Instructor and distributed at the end of each month to a charitable organization chosen by the winning class.  The message we want our students to learn is: Each penny is a small act of kindness and each small act can add up to a big difference
