|A rockin' "Midsummer Night's Dream"|
This year, the 8th grade is putting to work the classical theatre skills they learned in drama last year by presenting Shakespeare's comedy “A Midsummer Night's Dream” in full, with songs and dance numbers! This intrepid group of actors, singers, dancers, technicians, and musicians is tackling Seattle-area director and playwright Arne Zaslove's musical adaptation of this beloved script, set in a 1950s high school and interwoven with classic hits like "Chapel of Love," "Duke of Earl," and "I Will Follow Him." The show runs March 4 and 5 at 7 p.m. and March 6 at 1:30 in the MS Evans Theatre.
| PA funds at work: Chinese New Year lion|
While others might be celebrating the Year of the Sheep, on Friday, Feb. 13, Lakeside MS was all about the Lion.

Club participants had about four months to practice with the ornate costume (gold and maroon, of course) before the spirited community meeting performance. Read more…
|Reducing stress through mindfulness|
Mark Monday, March 16, on your calendars for a fascinating lecture on mindful meditation. Presented by the PA lecture committee, guest Judson Brewer, MD, PhD, will share his research at Yale University and UMass Medical School on the ways daily moments of mindful meditation can effectively treat health problems such as anxiety, stress, and addictions. Helping our children manage and reduce stress is vital for them to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in the Kent Evans Auditorium.
