It actively promotes both the creative environment and the intellectual context for artistic experimentation. To ensure a lightning strike on the aforementioned chemicals the ATR, along with help from the school’s science teacher, will build a lightning rod from the chemicals, out the window, and up to the roof of the school. Through Higher Edge, a fee-free year at Grossmont or Cuyamaca colleges will be offered to qualifying graduates of the Grossmont Union High School District schools beginning with the class of 2019. An extension of the previous point, school is where you spend most of the time of your formative years.
The work of Socialiniai Meno Projektai continues to flourish, and as part of the exhibition of work by people affected by homelessness currently running in the National Art Gallery of Lithuania, a discreet arts project by Andrejaus Kibisovo is currently receiving rave reviews in national press and TV. This coverage of an artist who lives outside the system is quite exception.

Priority will be given to centres that: are working with young people for whom access and inclusion is an issue and who will use the grant to support them to pilot, embed or develop their Arts Award work with these groups. Students names were written on Trojan Head cut-outs (our school mascot is the trojan) and displayed on the hallway. Congratulations to freshman Miles Teague (French Horn), who has been named a member of the Illinois High School Theatre Festival’s All-State company of Sweeney Todd. Supporting cultural spaces and other organisations to be open, positive and welcoming places for older people; and taking high quality arts and culture into places where older people will find it easier to engage.
Yesterday evening was magical not only because of the fantastic venue, but because of the camaraderie so apparent in the strong bonds of our school community. Being a company member of the annual All-State Production is considered to be the highest achievement a student may attain in Illinois high school theatre. The goal of the summit was for work groups to develop a road map of alignment, pathways, dual enrollment and engagement that prepares East County high school students for college and a career, removing any speed bumps that might be in the way. Responsible for setting the academic tone for their school, it is the principal’s vision, dedication, and determination that provide the mobilizing force behind any school reform effort. I tell myself that it is ok to post it on my blog because it is a hip hop musical and Alexander Hamilton is old school. The key to student success is an exceptional school with talented teachers and a great principal.
