It’s ten weeks into the school year, and it's the first year of the Central Valley School District. How are parents and students feeling about the merger? That’s the question the Central Valley Drama Club aimed to answer with their dramatic piece entitled, Central Valley Academy: Coming Together Project.
Through multimedia, improvisation, music and monologues student actors explored staff, student, and community members’ feelings about the Illion-Mohawk merger.
"I hope people understand that the merger was a good thing, there are still people out there like, I hate the merger,” said Mackenzie Lynch, a junior at Central Valley. “The merger was a good thing for us kids, we're getting a good education, and we’re making new friends. There’s a lot of new stuff going on, I hope they understand how great it is.”
“It's actually really exciting to be the part of something new and I’ll be the first graduating class of this new school and it's just a really cool thing,” said Central Valley Senior Julia Gardner.
The production was partially funded through an arts start grant and is patterned after the award winning play The Laramie Project.
