Tickets for Stand and Deliver will go on sale this week. Tables will be at both lunches Today, Thursday, and Friday. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students. The play is based on the 1988 film which follows the true story of a group of inner city students at Garfield High School in East Los Angeles and the journey of the famous Calculus teacher Jaime Escalante, which will be played by Mr. Croley.

    The show is very much relevant to many pressing issues facing our schools, communities, and country. Stand and Deliver is for anyone who believes in the power of possibility and the limitless pursuit of happiness. It's a show for the supporters of education and those who fight to the keep the artistry in the teaching profession. It's a show for the doers and dreamers, the underdogs and the persistent. It 's an urban tale which speaks directly to the heart. The play is an emotionally packed roller-coaster that speaks the common language we all share...one of laughter, tears and love. Do your part in helping to create a more positive school culture where diversity is embraced and inclusion becomes the norm. Come see Stand and Deliver! Shows are Feb. 15, 16, 17, and 18 at 7:00 p.m. and Feb. 19 at 2:00 p.m. Note: There will be a post show discussion following each performance discussing issues of diversity, inclusion, and ways we can work together to create psychologically safe learning environments.
