Arts National Honor Society Meeting on Thursday Sept 1, 2016, 10:45am (Lunchtime), room 231.
GW is excited to be initiating a new chapter of the National Arts Honor Society. Do you have a high interest in art and do you successfully participate in art classes at GW? Come to our first meeting and join!
The National Art Honor Society program inspires and recognizes students who have shown an outstanding ability and interest in art. The NAHS strives to aid members in attaining the highest standards in art scholarship, character, and service, and to bring art education to the attention of the school and community.
Already thinking about next summer? We are. Ms. O’Ryan and Ms. Smith will be taking a group of lucky students to Ireland, Scotland, and England right when school gets out in 2017. Bring a guardian and learn more about this fantastic trip abroad to the trip meeting on Sept. 14, 6:30 pm in Rm. 24.
Auditions for the fall play, Living Dead in Denmark will be held Thursday and Friday, the 1st and 2nd of September at 3:00 on the stage. In this production of epic awesomeness, three of Shakespeare’s most famous leading ladies use their ninja-like skills to save the world from the mysterious Ghost King and his zombie hordes. Actors will need to prepare a two-minute modern teenage monologue for the audition. Interested in being on a technical crew instead, see Mr. Hasbrouck in room 213 to get details.
