Alice in Wonderland play

Pendleton County High School Drama is presenting one public performance of their traveling interactive children’s production of Alice in Wonderland on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 7:00 in the Pendleton County High School Cafeteria. Ticket prices are $3.00 for anyone over 12 and anyone 12 and under are free although donations will be accepted. Since this is a children’s production, the high school students are taking this show for free to Northern Elementary, Southern Elementary, Sharp Middle School, and will perform for the Children’s Hour at the Pendleton County Library. They will be speaking with students at each production on what is involved in creating a show from costumes, scenery, props, make-up, accents, and illustrating differences between a traveling show and a traditional stage production. The younger students will hear about turning a book into a stage production and how they are similar and different. The drama students would love for you to come and see this story of Alice as she travels through her wonderland.

IMPORTANT CHANGE to Solar Eclipse Announcement

In preparation for Monday’s eclipse staff at the schools were reviewing the safety labels on the glasses purchased.  It was determined that while all glasses had the necessary labels, it was found that some had not been purchased from vendors that were listed on the NASA approved list.  After discussions with district and school administration, it was determined that we were not comfortable in being able to ensure the safety and well-being of all students throughout the day, particularly the afternoon dismissal and transportation time home. 


Therefore school will be canceled for Monday August 21, 2017.  This day will be added to the end of the year as a make-up day.  I apologize for the late notice but the safety of our students is of the utmost importance. 


R. Anthony Strong, Ed.D


Important Information--Solar Eclipse eclipse

On August 21, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Pendleton County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse. 

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Some of our schools will have special events and activities related to the eclipse, and more information will be sent home from the respective schools. 

While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  All schools will provide students with proper viewing glasses that have been approved.
