Into The Woods at Hinton High School
Twenty students from Hinton High School have been putting in many hours rehearsing for the upcoming fall musical, “Into the Woods.” This 1988 Tony Award winning musical is a magical, imaginative adventure told through the Grimm’s classic fairy tales. As the intricate plot unfolds, the childless Baker (Omar Khodor) and his wife (Sarah Struve), curse by wicked Witch, go off into the woods in hopes of ridding themselves of the witch’s evil influence.

Nursing News
As we get into cold and flu season, please remember if your child has a fever above 100.5, throws up, or requires medication to make it through the day, they should stay home. We need to keep other students healthy. AEA will once again offer hearing screening in February to our students. This is a great service they provide. If you have vision concerns on your child, please let me know and I will conduct a vision screening. A vision screening will also be done if I see complaints of frequent headaches or if a teacher has concerns. Please make sure your child has a hat with them as the weather gets colder, a borrowed hat is not something we can do for hygiene reasons. Elementary students, if your child has borrowed clothes from the nursing office, they need to be washed and returned.
