Article from the Beaver County times 12/3/15 - Written by Scott Tady: http://www.timesonline.com/entertainment/local_entertainment/the-nutcracker-ready-to-delight-in-ambridge-midland-and-pittsburgh/article_b058b46c-91f3-11e5-aee6-8b065f3bffe1.html
Written almost 200 years ago, the original story was a scary fairy-tale intended only for adults.
A few storyline tweaks turned "The Nutcracker" into a family favorite and cherished holiday tradition.
Two local "Nutcracker" productions open this weekend -- at Ambridge Area High School and the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh -- with another "Nutcracker" stepping forward later this month at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center in Midland.
Each show uniquely presents the dreamlike, coming-of-age tale, complete with Mouse King, Sugar Plum Fairy and toy soldiers, told with whimsy, beauty and rousing choreography.

Starting on Monday, the Junior High Interact Club will be hosting a "Penny War" to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and Hodgkin’s disease and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. This fundraiser will run the recommended three week time frame from Monday, March 5th until Friday, March 23rd.
What is a Penny War you may ask? It's pretty simple. Students bring in all the pennies they can and put them in their homeroom's donation box. Easy enough? There's just one catch...they can also bring in any other money, like nickels, dimes, quarters, and even dollar bills to sabotage other homerooms! Anything other than pennies will subtract from the money earned. General rule...pennies will add to your total, and all other money will take away. The homeroom with the highest balance (taking into account the sabotages) will win! So, we are asking students to bring in their money starting Monday! As long as the school raises $750, the Leukemia and Lymphoma society will pay for a pizza party for the winning homeroom.
The best part is that regardless of the highest or lowest balances collected by homerooms, all of the money collected will benefit a person in need. The Interact Club thanks you for your generosity!
Yesterday the JH and SH teams competed in the BC Envirothon at Brady's Run Park. The teams did well. The SH earned a 6th place our of 23 teams and the JH won a 1st and 4th place. The girls first place team missed 1st last year by 3 points.
This season in track & field, Isaac Elliott plans to win a WPIAL title in his sprinting event. In previous years, Elliott has unfortunately pulled his hamstring and been unable to compete. This year he has been doing very well so far with no injuries, so he hopes to be able to compete and qualify for states. Congratulations to him so far, and good luck for the rest of the season!
