ATTENTION ALL SENIORS—-IMPORTANT EARLY DISMISSAL INFORMATION
On February 3, 5, and 6 (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday), all current PLSHS 12th graders will be dismissed from school at 2:50 p.m. The early dismissal is because current 9th, 10th and 11th graders will be registering for 2014-15 courses with their teacher advisors. If a 12th grader is unable to leave the building at the 2:50 p.m. dismissal (i.e. they participate in bus/van transportation), they will be directed to the school cafeteria to wait until the regular 3:20 p.m. dismissal time.

This madcap hilarious comedy “Moon Over Buffalo” centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York, On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.

Get your tickets today for this really funny comedy!

Summer College Programs:
AgDiscovery (July 19 - August 1) is a partnership with Iowa State University (ISU). AgDiscovery is a summer outreach program to help teenagers learn about careers in plant and animal science, wildlife management, and agribusiness. The program allows students to live on a college campus and learn about agriculture from university professors, scientists, and administrative professionals who work for the U.S. Government in a variety of fields. They study the life cycles and habits of insects (entomologists); research micro-organisms, such as bacteria and viruses (biotechnologists); examine cells and tissues under a microscope to identify diseases (plant pathologists); work to conserve and manage wild animals and their habitats (wildlife biologists); carry out animal health programs (veterinarians); provide education on the humane care and treatment of animals (veterinarians and animal care inspectors); and manage the business aspects of protecting plants and animals (agribusiness).
Students chosen to participate in AgDiscovery will gain experience through hand-on labs, workshops, and field trips. Students will also participate in character- and team-building activities and a variety of workshops.
If you are interested in any of these programs, see Mrs. Morrow in Career Ed for a copy of the application and requirements for the program.
