In Mr. B’s class nothing is going on there, but I know for a fact there is much learning and teaching in his lovely fantastic class. 7th/8th US history learning about life in the American colonies. 9th/10th grade class is learning about Napoleon’s rise and downfall. 11th/12th is learning about U.S. Imperialism. Fun stuff!
Mrs. Fillo’s drama class had an event last Tuesday November 19th, in the Downieville cafeteria. All students performed fantastically! It was Skits and Snacks this year. The show was phenomenal, and our community was so supportive! It was a full house! Packed full of people! “It was absolutely AMAZING!” - Mrs. Fillo 11/21/19. Robert Baker and Aaron Foster acted in the skit “Who’s on First Base” They were both very energetic and enthusiastic. New student Greg Ziegler play are great villain, he was very despicable and cringy. We can’t forget the person who ran the show, Bailey Miller. She directed the 7/8th grade skit “Sinking of the Morning Star.” Everyone did great, and thank you to everyone who showed up to watch these awesome actors!
