During school today for 5th and 6th hour and after school the 11th grade will be presenting two productions. If you are in the mood for a drama, come see Macbeth and if you would like to laugh until your sides hurt, come see Midsummer Night’s Dream. If you are attending the performance during the school day (not all grade levels are invited, please check with your teacher), be sure to go to class for attendance first, and then go to the theatre. If you are coming to the shows after school, they start at 5:00 pm with the doors opening at 4:30 p.m. Each show is about an hour in length. Hope to see you at the theatre!

SENIORS – please notify your counselor immediately of the college applications you’ve submitted or are submitting by the early deadline dates (November 1st or 15th or December 1st).  Also update Naviance to accurately reflect what you are doing. If colleges are not listed on your “Colleges I’m Applying to” page in your Naviance account, or if the correct application date or application type are not showing in Naviance, your counselor will not know you are applying or what school reports must be submitted.  If you have questions or need help, please see your counselor.

Attention CPA students, we are collecting items to put together birthday bags for kids who are in foster care.  There are two boxes – one in the cafeteria and one in the forum – each box has a list of objects that can be donated.  We need everything from toys, to cake mix, candles, blankets, etc. Let’s help and give these kids the best birthday we can as a CPA family.  Thank you for all your donations.  

Archery and Bowyery will meet after school today.   

All students going to the field during lyceum must exit and enter through the ramada only not through the forum doors!
