Once Upon a Crime
The NMS drama department, led by Trish Dry and Heather Savoie, has been hard at work again as evidenced by their recent production of the Goldilocks tale. Eighth grade students portrayed beloved fairytale characters in “Once Upon a Time…The Trial of Goldilocks” which allowed audience members to decide the guilt or innocence of the fair-haired young maiden. Students from Rollins Place and NMS, as well as parents and other community members, were treated to a hilarious telling of the story originally published in the 19th century. Way to go, NMS drama students!

The Upstander Brand had an interview for a podcast with Digital Citizenship Institute
's Curran Central. Curran is a fifth grader whose mother, Marialice, started DigCit, and together they advocate for promoting social good through the use of social media and technology. Marialice and Curran are especially interested in The Upstander Brand's leadership in positive social media campaigns, and they discussed potential partnership in the future. DigCitKids, which aims to engage children in understanding the importance of kindness in the world, has a monthly challenge, and September's challenge is "how do you help your neighbor"? The Upstander Brand, Curran, and Marialice were able to discuss potential help for Harvey victims, which fits perfectly in the challenge. Finally, the music department was able to share an A Capella version of their first song, "One Little Act, " for the podcast. You can follow The Upstander Brand's positive social media campaigns, as well as find out information about their new products, on their Twitter account (@upstanderbrand) and Instagram account (@theupstanderbrand).
