Creative Writing Club will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Mrs. O’Donnell’s room (401) starting the week after spring break. You will be free to work on your own projects, or get help brainstorming personal projects if you are interested in writing but need some direction. Mrs. O’Donnell will be available to help you brainstorm, give you feedback, help you get unstuck, give you space and time to write, and help you search contest/publication opportunities if you are interested. The whole idea is that you would have time to work on projects that you want to work on, aside from assigned projects in English classes.

The Lower Academy Dance classes are having their showcase Thursday, March 9th. The show starts at 6:30pm and doors open at 6.
