The play is about a Russian town that has been cursed with chronic stupidity for 200 years. A school teacher has come to town and he has only 24 hours to break the curse. Will the curse be broken in time or will Sophia be forced to marry Count Gregor?
Come and enjoy this very funny production in the high school Little Theatre.

GRADUATION ARTWORK NEEDED!
Please consider submitting artwork for the 2022 GRADUATION COMMENCEMENT PROGRAM and/or the 2022 SENIOR BREAKFAST (this takes place the morning of graduation for your class). If you want to see past examples, I have them in my room, but really anything 2D is eligible. The administration generally prefers the use of limited colors due to printing costs, and portrait layout is typically preferred as well.

Red Wing teacher says goodbye to his career with a daily auction of neckties
RED WING - Recently, social studies teacher Scott Bender has been taking off his tie at the end of the day and leaving it at school rather than taking it home like he normally would. That way, it can be picked up by whoever was fortunate enough to win the day's round of online bidding.

ALL students are invited and welcomed to attend to get extra work time and support in their studies.
