GHS stages the fall play
The fall play at Gladstone High required a new approach during distance learning. Each actor performed their part from their own home, with teacher Josh Weir editing the pieces into a complete video production. Here’s the link to the performance: https://youtu.be/zSZiuaJ6GNU

The family-friendly play is Homeschooled by Jason Pizzarello. It tells the timely story of the town of Smorgasbord, which is forced to close the public school system and rely on a motley crew of parents to homeschool all the children.

Gladstone High School choirs celebrate Veterans
Gladstone’s choir students didn’t let a global pandemic get in the way of honoring local Veterans. Though distance learning prevented the school’s annual Veterans assembly, choir students worked hard to record their performances for distribution in video format.
