WE’RE STILL HERE

We are proud to announce our spring show for this year is an original piece called WE’RE STILL HERE. The show was written by the Honors Theatre and Advanced Drama Students. It is a collection of thoughts, scenes, monologues, and images of their life experiences over the last 14 months living during a major pandemic. In addition, sprinkled throughout the show are comments from some of our MKHS faculty. The writing touches on issues of loss, isolation, racism, and renewed hope among other things. Once again, the tech theatre students, led by Tim Gillette, have done all the editing and special effects.

The show is only about 60 minutes and will be streaming May 14-23. We hope you have a chance to view the show. Attached is the flyer with information about tickets.

IMPORTANT NEWS: NEW "BUS STOP" MEAL DISTRIBUTION INFORMATION!

We know the changes to the Bus Stop distribution has been challenging for some of our families. We have made an adjustment, that we hope will help!

Beginning next WEDNESDAY, April 21st, we will resume SIX bus stop locations once a week. HOWEVER, they will serve a large box (5 breakfasts and 5 lunches), along with a whole pizza for suppers (similar to the box we distribute before a long break).

Current meal service (with the one bus/truck stop) will still occur on Monday, April 19th. Beginning Wednesday, April 21st, our new once/week bus distribution will begin. This will NOT effect regular meal service on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays (12:00pm-1:00pm) at our school sites.
