The Spring Play for Licking High School is Cast!!

posted Mar 12, 2018, 8:39 AM by Brandi Smith

Our spring production, “The Southfield Stories” is a contemporary take on The Canterbury Tales. It is a play about storytelling with imaginations running wild! As nine travelers wait in the rain for their bus, another arrives and invites the travelers into her home to wait in the warmth. To pass the time, they decide to have a story telling contest. Like Canterbury Tales, each traveler tells a story that shows what the traveler is really like, their worldviews and what they really value. As we listen to the stories, they are acted out by members of the drama class! The stories range from baseball teams to a poem-reciting chicken!!

Students have been rehearsing every day for several weeks, and are creating the set, finding costumes and doing all the other million and one tasks necessary to create a successful production We hope you will come and support our young actors and see this exciting and dramatic production on April 13 and 14 at 8:00 p.m. in the Jr. High gym. Tickets are $4 in advance and $5 at the door and can be purchased from any cast or crew member or at the door. Licking High School Drama Department invites you to come and see “The Southfield Stories”.

Taylor's FCCLA Legislative Job Shadow

posted Mar 9, 2018, 8:28 AM by Brandi Smith   [ updated Mar 9, 2018, 8:29 AM ]

On Wednesday, January 31, I had the awesome and unique opportunity to job shadow Representative Jay Barnes at our state capitol. The FCCLA Legislative Job Shadowing is a program organized by MO FACS and FCCLA. You should be an active member of FCCLA and show leadership skills. Job shadowing Representative Barnes was very eye-opening and fun! He let me go to important meetings and allowed me to meet many new people. I encourage everyone who has the chance, to apply! I would like to say thank you to my supervisor, Mrs. Kuhn, to MO FACS, and to Jay Barnes for allowing me to job shadow him. It was an amazing experience and a great way to make connections!

Sydney's FCCLA Legislative Job Shadow

posted Mar 8, 2018, 12:46 PM by Brandi Smith   [ updated Mar 9, 2018, 8:29 AM ]

On Wednesday, January 31st, I had the amazing opportunity to be a part of Missouri FCCLA Legislative Job Shadowing Program. This program allows students to make connections and to see public policies and laws in relation to family. I had the opportunity to job shadow Representative Judy Morgan at our state capitol. This experience allowed me the opportunity to see how our Missouri government works. Representative Morgan did an excellent job of explaining the details her job entails on a daily basis. Representative Morgan also allowed me to follow her to session, where I was introduced on the floor, and I got to hear bills being discussed, debated, and voted on. I was also allowed to sit in on meetings and could ask questions about the bills she was going to discuss in session the next week. This was an amazing opportunity and I encourage all those who can apply for this program to apply! Thank you, MO FCCLA and Representative Judy Morgan, for the amazing opportunity.

Mr. Coffey Teaches About Middle Ages

posted Feb 9, 2018, 8:46 AM by Brandi Smith   [ updated Feb 9, 2018, 8:47 AM ]

Mr. Coffey's World History classes set to studying the Middle Ages by building their own medieval forts or castles. Each class was to pretend they were engineers tasked to build a small version of a fort or castle as their submission to the nobles to win the contract for the next royal castle to be built. The students worked several weeks and came up with some really great looking forts and castles.


2018 Shakespeare Competition

posted Jan 24, 2018, 12:17 PM by Brandi Smith   [ updated Jan 29, 2018, 6:06 AM ]

This year the drama class chose to compete in the English Speaking Union's Shakespeare competition. Students chose a 20 line Shakespeare monologue from a list provided by the ESU. We translated the Old English words so we new what it said, looked up how to say them, then memorized the Old English words! We worked on adding movement and emotion to our performance. The students did an amazing job! All this work terminated in a school competition. Students had to stand onstage and perform in front of judges--who rated their performances. The winner of this year's competition was Tim Ranft. 2nd place was Lilly Fleming, with Haley Burrus our third place winner. The judges debated for a long time to decide on the winner, as every performance was pretty amazing! Tim Ranft will compete at the State level on Saturday, February 3 in St. Louis. Winner of the state level goes the national competition in New York in April! Special congratulations to Tim on a job well done, and thanks to all our drama kids who worked hard and gave great performances.
