GENERAL INFORMATION:


"The informational meeting for this year's winter play, And a Child Shall Lead, will be this Thursday at 3:15 in Mr. Greer's room, 224E.  And a Child Shall Lead is the heroic and true story of children coming of age in Terezin, the 'Jewish city' established by the Nazis near Prague as a way station before the death camps. In the face of unspeakable horror, these children use their determination and creativity to build lives filled with hope and beauty -- playing, studying, making art, and writing an underground newspaper -- all at the peril of being executed. Their actual poems and stories are woven into a fast-paced drama, evoking the universality of children caught in the insanity of war. We are partnering with the Quad City Jewish Federation for this production, so it is sure to be something special. Come Thursday after school to learn more!"

The UTHS Sports and Entertainment Marketing class is sponsoring a trip to see the Chicago Bulls play the Atlanta Hawks on December 11th. Cost is $40 and includes one ticket plus bus transportation to the game. Payment is due by this Friday, made out to UTHS, and dropped off to Mr. Miller in room 228E. We are limited to 30 tickets on a first come first served basis.


- The talent show has been cancelled due to lack of participation. We may try again next semester!
