Newsies Jr. Wraps Up
The newsies of ABIS hit the stage this past weekend with an exhilarating performance of an old-time classic. Under the direction of Ms. Lucchesse and Ms. Jacques, and with the help of Ms. Eckert and Ms. Massa, the cast of 55 and crew of 20 rehearsed since September to bring Newsies Jr. to the Manville stage. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the ABIS drama department. We hope you enjoyed the show!
On December 12, the 5th grade students celebrated their graduation from DARE, the substance abuse resistance program taught by local law enforcement. Over the course of ten weeks, the students completed activities such as group discussion and acting out scenarios to practice identifying potentially hazardous situations they may need to avoid as they get older. Congratulations graduates!
