Learning Without Limits

SHS Theatre
Seaman High School Teacher, Michael Stauffer and students invited the board to attend their first on-act play of the year, called "Junie B Jones is not a Crook." This play is geared more towards a younger crowd so they hope parents bring elementary students to the production.  The one-act play is mostly student-run with two student directors, stage managers, techs, actors, set design, etc.

President Remarks

Michelle Caudill talked about teachers and students getting into their routine and said she's interested to see how students are doing. "Nobody really knows what to consider normal. Coming off of the pandemic, and moving forward, I think it's going to be exciting to see what our students see as the new normal and focusing on what our students need and helping them through this year."
