Shakespeare Competition 

Congratulations to Cara Cashman for her fine performance in yesterday's regional Shakespeare Competition at the Arden Theater in Philadelphia.

After a tough first-round of competition, Cara went on to compete in the afternoon with a cold reading of a passage from Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra.

She didn't win this year’s competition, but thank you, Cara, for a fine performance and for representing Archbishop Wood so well!

There will be a brief five minute HOSA meeting every day this week for the HOSA convention team in lab room 322 immediately after announcements during homeroom.

Writing Help:

Good writing is hard work!  If you’ve got a writing assignment for one of your classes, and you’re struggling with it, stop by the Learning Commons today and every Tuesday and Thursday for some help!  Mr. Velten, a retired English teacher, can help you raise that writing to the next level, maybe for a higher grade.

Once again, for help with your writing, stop by the Learning Commons today during your lunch period.


And finally…

I was out to eat with my family and my waiter said “I see your glass is empty, would you like another one?”
I couldn’t understand why she thought I’d want two empty glasses!
