    Dr. Schmidt, Thank you again for all the information keeping parents informed, I appreciate it. I just thought I would give you an update on the BGHS drama club play…it is so funny. I wish they would have put it in the flyer that it is a comedy. I am afraid “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare” will scare people off. The few people that were in the audience were laughing so hard the majority of the time, it really was good. The script is really funny and there is a little improv and the kids are so good at it. The new director did a fantastic job with the kids, they love her. I look forward to going again next weekend. I hope you have a chance to check it out. Thanks again, Sharon Newell
