National Art Honor Society Happenings

NAHS went to Houston on Thurs. Dec. 7th for a field trip to see the Museum of Fine Arts and A Christmas Carol at the Alley Theater.

72nd Annual Williamson County Livestock Association Show

The show was from Dec. 4-9th. It is a long, devoted undertaking to prepare for. Great job to everyone involved.

From the desk of Amber Thorsen

All seniors will be in the student center on January 17, 2018 for a future planning workshop. We will have a representative from Universal Technical Institute discuss different career pathways and navigating life after high school.

Contemplating How She Did at UIL

When this student was asked how she felt about her performance in UIL Art Smart, she replied "I feel guilty." Intrigued, she was asked why. Her reply: "I couldn't remember some the Artist names and I feel bad about that." Regret not, for haven't we all forgotten someone's name before? Especially under pressure!

Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil...

All joking aside, it was no monkeying around for these guys. It's not a small task getting ready for UIL. It is a before, during, and after event. Thank you for all you do!
