2017 Art Tiles Installed at Craneville

 The tile project has a long history in Central Berkshire.  When walking the halls at Craneville, you can't miss the art tiles that line the walls.

Each year in Mrs. Clark's Art Classes students create designs and paint them on tiles.  Patterns are created (on graph paper) by students and submitted for a vote. The winning pattern is the design that is used to hang all of the tiles. This year's winning design was created by Landen Kiernan.  There were 88 tiles in all.

The tiles were installed by Mrs. Clark, Mr Garcia and 5th Grader Aidan Garcia and were unveiled to the public on Friday, May 12th.  Beautiful job everyone!

This year at Nessacus students are preparing for a production (on April 11th at 7pm) that loosely has the theme "Music from Books/Literature". As many films are based and books, some music being played is from Harry Potter, Twilight, the Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka.  There will also be a dramatic recitation of the Edgar Allen Poe Classic "The Tell-Tale Heart" by ELA Teacher Corey Walsh prior to a performance of the piece by the 7th/8th Band.

We hope to see you at many of these events!!

WRHS Apollonian Players To Present Dramatic Work 'BIG BAD'

On Saturday, October 29th at 4pm the Apollonian Players or Wahconah will present BIG BAD. Here is information about the production.

Big Bad provides actors and audiences of any age with a smart and wickedly funny play that lets the audience determine the outcome of the play! The most notorious criminal in the fairy-tale world, Big Bad Wolf (Will Harris), is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters he has wronged. Now, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest — the Evil Stepmother (Haley Sickell) and the Fairy Godmother (Brooklyn Pratt) — will clash--on live Court TV, no less, with Sydney Grimm (Hannah Rogers) as commentator in a trial that will be remembered forever after. As Little Red Riding Hood Aleksandra Tsangarides, her Grandmother (Ellie Wright), the Three Little Pigs (Anthony Coviello, Mark Pusky, Annie Cramer) and the Shepherdess (Mikel Lamont) in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf (Holden Nelson) testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that’s coming.

 But, even though the disreputable Evil Stepmother couldn’t be less interested in pro-bono work on such an obviously futile defense, Mr. Wolf makes a good case for himself. Was he born a criminal, or made one? Perhaps he does deserve compassion instead of condemnation? What will the verdict be? Only the jury — your audience — can decide, when the doddering old Judge (Lucas Walsh) invites them to determine the outcome of the trial... and the play!
