Mrs. Awad's A Day class at W.O.K. Middle school (with 2 understudies from Public Speaking B Day) performed a scene and song from the famous musical production Annie for Mr. Lockyear's and Ms. Goglia's classes! The audience smiled from ear to ear during the performance! The cast stayed after the performance for a Q&A session, where they were asked great questions about their ambitions in theater and what they did to prepare themselves for the skit. Quite a few audience members even asked for autographs! It was a great educational experience for all involved and a wonderful way for our students to respectfully interact and learn from one another. #hillsidenj #hillsidepublicschools #annie #theater #playproduction #newpride #newpathways #newpossibilities

The theme of this year’s competition was “Teens in Crises."

Codigo Latino group included scholars Jeremy Quiros, Benjamin Balladares, Julian Silva, and Onyz Sanchez!
