I want to commend the theater department at JDHS for their Academy Awards ceremony held recently at school. The whole thing was so well organized. There was a cool video of the year's productions, timpani rolls accompanied individual awards, and there were even cute champagne glasses for the punch. But it was the atmosphere there that was so remarkable.
It was a feeling of inclusion - the kids all seemed happy and engaged. They were having fun.
As a parent of children that spend a lot of time in the theater department I want to thank Toby Clark, Bethany Bereman and Shanna Galuzzo for their kind accepting ways with the drama kings and queens they deal with daily. I appreciate their valuable input into the lives of my kids.
