Thespian Troupe 5370 Presents Governing Alice November 5-6
In this modern adaptation of the Greek classic Antigone, a rebellious high school student named Alice must respond to the sudden and shattering death of her older brother, the class valedictorian -- who was shot while robbing a convenience store. Up against an unyielding Principal and accompanied by a bookish Geek Chorus, Alice must find her own way through personal and classical tragedy. In honoring her brother, she'll probably break some rules. Which is more important?
Shows are at 7pm both evenings. Tickets sold at the door. Adult tickets at $4, non-Salpointe student tickets are $3 and Salpointe students get in free with school ID!
Community of Concern: Repeat Presentation 
Those who were not able to attend the Community of Concern presentation in September will have another chance on Tuesday, November 9 from 6 - 8 pm in Foundation Hall.

Teachers and counselors are seeing the long-term effects of the last year and half on our students, such as an increase in academic, social, and mental health concerns. We want to share those observations with you and make sure that we are working together, both at school and at home, to support our young people.
Topics for the evening will cover:
  • Recognizing and assisting our students who are struggling academically, socially or mentally
  • New Counseling and Campus Ministry programs that will help address those issues
  • How counselors, teachers and parents can best work together 
  • Additional resources for parents

Character Counts
On Wednesday, Stella quoted a passage from scripture on love and related how envy and unhealthy pride are not reflective of our uniqueness in the eyes of God (Avoiding Envy and Boastfulness). Thursday, Omar talked about the difference between envy and gratitude and how the former is always about our wants, while the latter, more importantly, focuses on our needs (Envy vs. Gratitude).
