    Attention Shrek, Jr. Cast & Crew…just a reminder that rehearsal today after school (Thursday, February 29th) is cancelled. Everyone is expected to be at tomorrow’s MANDATORY rehearsal after school (Friday, March 1st) from 3:00-5:30. See you there!

    Attention all students-Please check the lost & found in cafeterias 1 and 2 for any lost items. All unclaimed items will be discarded at the end of the day on Friday.

    The Altoona Area Junior High School Drama Club is proud to present Shrek the Musical, Jr. Public performances are scheduled for 7:00 P.M. on Thursday, March 7th and Friday March 8th with a matinee show at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, March 9th, 2024.  All performances will take place in the Altoona Area Junior High School Auditorium.

    Nasty will be nice and Altoona will be ogre-the-moon when AAJHS students (and a few familiar teachers!), along with special guests from the Juniata Elementary Drama Club, present their production of Shrek The Musical Jr.  This family-friendly musical comedy follows the adventures of an ogre named Shrek who sets off on a quest to save a princess from a dragon. However, it turns out that in order to ultimately succeed, Shrek must battle an even bigger obstacle – learning how to believe in himself and open his heart to others.

    With over 70 actors and almost 20 crew members, Shrek the Musical, Jr. is sure to be entertaining and fun for everyone!

    General admission tickets will only be on sale at the door and will cost $8 for adults and $5 for students. Doors open approximately 1/2 hour before each show.

    We hope to see you there!

    Attention students:  The speed of a cat is about 2.5 times that of a squirrel.  If the squirrel goes 12 miles per hour, how fast is the cat?  If you like puzzles and riddles and the 24 game, come to our Mathcounts meeting Wednesday after school from 2:45 until 3:30.  Please see Mrs. Abbott in C275 for details or email.  See Mrs. Abbott for the answers!
