9-12 English/Language Arts Students:

On February 28, we have the opportunity to attend the musical May We All at Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge. MAY WE ALL takes us to Harmony, Tennessee, “the town that sings” where music used to echo through every part of town. But the community has fallen on hard times with businesses closing and the population dwindling. Returning home after two years is local country music singing sensation, Jenna Coates, who left Harmony to pursue her dreams of discovery in Nashville. In her absence, Jenna has led the locals to believe that she’s made it—but it’s all a lie. She never found her break, and she returns home to strained relationships and a town in need of rejuvenation. Her journey will resonate with all those who have faced defeat, persevered, found hope and courage and ultimately triumphed. A limited number of tickets are available. Sign-ups are on Mrs. Gafkjen's door until February 21. We will leave at 7:15am and return 2-2:30pm. Bring money for lunch. Class sign-out sheets and permission slips will be given to those who will be attending.
