Library News

Reading is an Investment

Readers in K-3 were entered in a statewide financial literacy reading promotion led by the Vermont State Treasurer's Office called Reading is an Inve$tment.  I promised to update you when they selected their 20 winners.  Unfortunately, none were chosen from HPES, although there were a couple from neighboring schools in our district.  We will continue this financial literacy program again next year.  Thanks ~ Mrs. Bryc

Rock of Ages at LUMS

Lamoille Union Middle School will present the musical Rock of Ages (Middle School Edition) on April 10th and 11th in the LUHS auditorium.

Set in the mid-1980s, Rock of Ages tells the story of a small-town girl from Kansas, and a city boy born and raised in South Detroit.  They are both seeking fame, fortune, and love along Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.  But can the famous boulevard be saved from strip-mall style urban renewal?  Rock music saves the day for everyone, with well-known songs from lots of sweet '80s bands that everyone will recognize.

Hyde Park alumni Bian Leon and Sophia Giard are featured as L.A. characters in the ensemble.  Owen Privee has a leading role as Lonny Barnett, who narrates the show as well as singing and dancing with the ensemble.

Unlike the movie of the same name, Rock of Ages (Middle School Edition) is fully G-rated and suitable for small children, teens, parents, grandparents, and everyone.  Unless you are allergic to rock music played live by our own "Sweet '80s Band."

Show times are 7 PM on Wednesday and Thursday, April 10th & 11th.  Tickets are $5 for any age, any seat.  They will be available at the door.
