This Friday, October 12th, is Stanbridge Academy’s first Bake Sale of the new school year! Student Government will be selling home-baked goodies during lunch time, and all students (and staff!) are welcome to purchase a snack or two. This is a great opportunity for students to learn how to handle money and practice buying and selling, with funds raised going toward this year's Student Government Project (TBD). Items should be delivered to the front office on Friday morning before 11:00 a.m., and all items should be individually wrapped. If you have any questions, or wish to provide items for the sale, contact Bake Sale organizer Michelle Mackenzie.
It is only fitting that we formally announce this year's first Bake Sale on the same day that counselor James Warren returns to campus from his medical leave. James is back and better than ever, and it's likely that he'll perform his famous original composition—"The Bake Sale Song"—this Friday. For those who have not yet heard this earworm, click the link above and sing along.
Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is one of the great dramas of the 20th century, and attention must be paid to the Coastal Repertory Theatre's current production of this classic play. Two Stanbridge Academy staff members play key roles on stage and behind the scenes in the Half Moon Bay repertory troupe's revival—Office Manager Danny Martin steps into the spotlight in the role of Biff, and Counselor Mary Stadler ensures the spotlight hits its mark as the production's lighting technician. Performances run weekends through October 28, save for October 12–14 when Willy Loman and Company take the weekend off for the HMB Pumpkin Festival. Tickets are available through the Coastal Rep website, and our off-off-off Broadway stars are happy to answer any questions you might have about the show (they'll even autograph your program).
