************* ANNOUNCEMENTS *************

Yearbooks are here!

If you ordered a yearbook, come to the computer lab (room 6) to pick yours up!

Support the MEA Theatre Company!

As many of you know, the director of the MEA Theatre Company, Adira Rosen will be graduating in just a few short days and will be attending college on the east coast next year. Due to Adira's geographic change, she will be unable to direct a full production at MEA next year. In order for the company to continue, we will need to hire part time staff to direct, costume, and design any productions. We are reaching out to ask for your financial support as we enter this new chapter of the MEA Theatre Co. Take a moment to read Adira's letter below, and, if you are able, please consider making a donation! Every dollar counts!
