On Monday, October 31, students and faculty families enjoyed their annual Halloween Dinner
. Many students and faculty members dressed up in creative costumes and mingled in the courtyard outside of the dining hall to show off their costumes prior to dinner.
Mrs. Donna Rudick and her Spanish classes observed Día de los Muertos on November 1 and 2. Students decorated the white board on the second floor of the Academic Center with photos, mementos, flowers, and other special objects brought in by students and faculty in memory of someone special to them.
In a Wednesday, November 2 performance for local elementary schools and then from Friday, November 4 through Sunday, November 6 for the public, the Ellis Theatre Guild performed the children's play Cane Tales.
Written by Director of the Center For The Arts Burt Merriam, Cane Tales
was performed in a “storyteller’s theatre” format. Played on a simple set, a cane is passed from storyteller to storyteller as each competes to outdo the other by dramatizing stories inspired by the cane.
