***Student Support would like to invite Juniors to “Focus Fridays”  during their drops and flex in the ACC classroom, Room 606.  

We will be providing a stress-free AND focus-driven space to get work done.  We will provide encouragement, guidance, and office supplies to help maximize work time.  We will also be hosting a coffee bar with snacks! YUM!!!

No sign up or RSVP is needed – simply a genuine desire to get things done and to free up weekends from work and stress.

***This year has been a lot. Come to Foundation Hall on Friday, 4/16 from 12:30pm-1:30pm to talk, color, listen to music, or simply have a space to decompress. Stay five minutes or the whole hour—it is your time and space to do what you need. Snacks will be provided.

***Cannon Theater Company 2022 Musical Search

As always at this time of year, Cannon Theater Company is searching for the right musical to produce next year. Our first question is always – who’s interested and what are their singing strengths? To help us get a better sense of this, we (Mac, Mrs. Jones, Mr. Burlington) are asking for video submissions of you singing. These videos are NOT auditions, and they are not required in order to audition in the fall. They’re just an opportunity for you to be on our radar as we research which musicals could be good options for CTC. For more details, check out the email Mac ( sent you on Monday.

***Leo Kong’s Piano Recital Capstone 

Jack Field’s Capstone will be a lunch and learn in Mr. Smith’s room at 11:45 on Thursday the 13th and the subject is discussing vaccines, how they work, a bit of history, and clearing the waters about a few misconceptions.

Hi, my name is Olivia Harper. A few weeks ago, for my Capstone, I had a survey for people to fill out about what fun activities you might want to explore on your own. Thank you to those who filled it out! I have now used those responses to create my website as my final project. I would love it if you could click on the link and check it out. There is a page on there for suggestions/feedback and it would be great if you could tell me what you think. Thank you!
