Miracle of Miracles!

 

That’s what the audience at Analy Arts’ spring musical production of Fiddler on the Roof will be thinking when they experience the new sound and lighting equipment provided by the AHS Education Foundation.

There’s also new LED lighting and a new wireless remote focus system. This new equipment will give the Analy Arts’ productions a more professional look and sound. It will also help the students learn to use more current theater technology.

Fiddler on the Roof will be playing April 8 -16.  You won’t want to miss it!

“Something wicked this way comes….”

If you hear your student mumbling that or perhaps “double, double toil and trouble”, you’ll know they participated in the English Department field trip for Analy Seniors to a special screening of Macbeth at the Rialto Theater.

The field trip was spearheaded by Ms. Maxson as a way to help students experience some of the many cultural resources that are available to them outside of school.  This special screening was of the 2015 movie release of Macbeth featuring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

 

The students described the movie as “intense”, which we think is a good thing!  It also generated some good discussions back in class.

The cost of the screening was covered by a grant from the Analy High School Education Foundation.

AHS Yearbook Gets “The Fisheye” Treatment

Thanks to a grant from the AHS Education Foundation, many of the photos in Analy’s 2016 Yearbook will have a stunning new look.

It’s called a Fisheye and is a feature on some of the new cameras that Ms. Nelson was able to purchase this year for her Yearbook class.

In recent years, the Yearbook class cameras have been so unreliable that students were using their own equipment to take photos of pep rallies, sports events, music concerts and the all the other activities that make high school yearbooks so memorable.

With the purchase of two DSLR Canon Rebels, a point and shoot Canon, and a point and shoot Nikon, the students were able to learn more advanced photography skills and have been able to shoot higher quality and more intriguing photos.

Check out these beautiful results.

There are lots of other neat features, but you’ll have to wait for the yearbook to come out to see them!
