MPJH Presents One Act Play

The Mount Pleasant Junior High School Theatre Department presented their One Act Play, “House at Pooh Corner,” at the Junior High One Act Play competition in Sulphur Springs on December 7. Madeline Simmons was named to the All-Star Cast, and Clayton Miller received Honorable Mention All-Star Cast. Ava Bliss was awarded All-Star Crew member.

In “House at Pooh Corner,” Christopher Robin has decided to run away with his friends Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger and the rest. Probably they’ll go to the North Pole or to the South Pole. For there is a dark, mysterious threat that he’s to be sent away to Education. Nobody knows what or where that is, and if he’s sent to such a distant place, what can his friends possibly do without him? So it’s generally agreed that they’ll run away. As the situation becomes more evident, Christopher Robin isn’t quite so sure that running away is the answer.

The production featured Emma Snodgrass as Christopher Robin, Pearl Skye Murillo as Winnie-the-Pooh, Liliana Saavedra as Piglet, Madeline Simmons as Owl, Clayton Garrett Miller as Eeyore, Abby Phelan as Tigger, Tiffany Rangel as Kanga, Daniela Palomo as Roo, Madison McNeil as Rabbit, Madison Thompson as Early Rabbit, Aeryn Mast as Late Rabbit, and Bri Cantly as Voice. Members of the crew included Ava Bliss, Stage Manager and Assistant Director; Osiris Mojica, costuming and make-up; Ethan Wilson, lights; and Nayeli Rivera, Assistant Stage Manager, and Sound Tech. The play was directed by MPJH Theatre Director Crystal Francis-Peel.

MPHS FBLA Collects Items for Grace Case

Mount Pleasant High School’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter spearheaded an on-campus collection drive for Grace Case, which is part of the CASA organization. The Grace Case gives essential items to children who are removed from their homes quickly and taken to foster homes. The collection was part of Giving Tuesday (a global initiative to give back to local charities, organizations, etc..). Giving Tuesday is held the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. A large number of items were collected including fleece blankets, colored pencils, children’s books, coloring books for teenagers and travel items such as shampoo, conditioners, body wash, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.

FBLA would like to thank the following organizations for their contributions:
HOSA, Student Council, National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society, and Mr. Alston’s students.
