Watership Down

By Kristopher Atkinson, April 2, 2014 2:22 PM


Inspired by the book Watership Down the Honors English 11 class built bridges made out of food! In the book bunnies are forced out of there home and they must find a new. In this project groups were to build a bridge connecting their island to another to show that no one person is just an island but a community.

Now for some pictures of these 100% edible bridges





Correction! - Theater Department Senior Project!

By Lily Odekirk, April 2, 2014 12:30 PM


This Friday, seniors Lily Odekirk, Austin Susman, Kathryn Tweel, and Jacob McLaughlin will take the stage in Jean Paul Satre's 'No Exit'.

Don't miss this ONE-NIGHT ONLY performance on Friday April 4th at 7:00 PM. in the GWHS Auditorium.

Please note that this time is a change from the previously publicized time.

'No Exit' is an existential one-act exploring the concept of hell. However, unlike the burning temperatures and horn-rimmed devil we've grown familiar with, hell is instead a single, inescapable room with only three people.

Admission is donation only!
