New Date: Eighth Grade Play

March 15th, 2017

When a man is accused of abducting half a dozen cats, it’s a simple open-and-shut case, even for a jury that’s filled with oddballs like a dim-witted PR “maven,” a bickering couple, and a man obsessed with french fries. Although every scrap of evidence indicts the accused, Juror #8–a wannabe lawyer–believes that the “Cat Burglar” is innocent. Will he be able to sway the other jury members? Or will they side with Juror #3–the only sane one in the bunch–in this hilarious parody of 12 Angry Men.
Our Eighth Graders will be performing this hilarious play on Thursday, March 30th at 6:30 PM.

In preparation for participation in the annual MLK Day of Service, SPS students will be discussing Dr. King’s legacy, the many who worked with Dr. King in the fight for racial justice, and the struggle that continues today. Younger students will make personal connections with the concepts of fairness, justice, and philanthropy. Older students explore how individuals can use personal interests and strengths to impact the common good. MLK Day of Service is during school hours on Monday, January 16th.
