The Boys and Girls Club is starting back up this year virtually! They need volunteers to help with creating fun online games as well as managing the kids in groups as they play! We were thinking about kahoots, pictionary, and other online group games! The kids will be in the 1st-5th grades and these will primarily take place on Wednesday’s from 4:15-5:15! There will be about 20-25 kids in a group. If you are interested please let McKenzie Elrod or Alex Oh know because we want to get a rough list of volunteers as soon as possible so we can start working on fun things for the kids to do!
Attention Juniors and Seniors!
Athens Academy is partnering, for the second year, with the Department of Advertising and Public Relations in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia to offer select internships to juniors and seniors. This year, the internship will be virtual and students will be expected to meet weekly via zoom for approximately 1 hour on assigned dates. The internship runs September 2020 – April 2021.
Auditions for this year’s Fall “play” will be held this Wednesday- Friday starting at 3:45 pm in the PH. Each auditionee will sign up for a 12-minute slot. An audition sign-up sheet will be posted today on the double doors at the end of the Bertlesmann turnaround driveway right under the stairs that lead to my classroom. Please do not hang out before or after your audition time. BE SAFE!
The play is a monologue play about the boxes we are put in by society, gender, ourselves. It was written by alumna, Kendall Sherwood. Kendall currently works as a writer and producer for the TV show “Hawaii 5’O”.
This play is SO timely! Due to COVID, this year’s production will be like none other. Everyone is welcome to audition. Home learners, those involved in other activities, everyone. Since the play will not be performed live… we are moving another direction completely. If you have ever been interested in being in the fall play… now is your opportunity! Rehearsals will be limited and will take place during the school day, after school, and over zoom. The time commitment has never been so little. Please, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
If you would like a script e-mailed to you, email me and I will send you one!
