11 Variations on Friar John's Failure

The Valwood drama team performed the play “Eleven Variations on Friar John’s Failure” on October 30th. George Tidmore played the lead, while several other castmates debuted in the show. Both new and seasoned students performed exceptionally well. One particular area of expertise was the cast members' ability to perform several roles seamlessly. Emma Lavender, who held multiple roles, played her characters with exemplary performance, and she was a highlight of the show. The months of hard work and dedication were evident in the team’s finest performance. Their performance solidified every reason why this team deserves to go to state.

Art Club

Art Club meetings are held every second Tuesday at lunch. Socials are held the second Monday from 3:30 to 5:00 pm, and they feature fun themes with snacks and activities. Some of those activities include dumpster painting and costume parties. We might also be painting birdhouses for Habitat for Humanity, serving as ushers at art events, visiting local art galleries, learning calligraphy, and painting faces at school events. Membership is free and, yearly, students design an art club T-shirt. The four state officers are Hannah Svenson, president; Taylor Sparrow, vice president; Kelsee Warren, secretary; and Madelyn Castor, social chair. Officers preside over meetings and plan the fun events.
