Dear Parents,

Monday, November 18, 2019 - Thursday, November 22, 2019, the Spanish Honor Society will present the exhibit “Picasso is Alive”. It will be held in the Media Center beginning at 3:40 PM, and Friday at 2:30 PM. The exhibit will be open until 5:00 pm and the cost is $3. This is going to be a great opportunity for our students to increase their knowledge about culture, world history, and art. During the exhibit, members of the Spanish Honor Society are going to present and describe some of  Picasso’s work in a historical context.  This cultural event is open for all our students in the school.

Film and Speech students will be presenting: Night of the Living Museum: Heroes vs. Villains on Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 6:30 to 7:30 PM in the Media Center. Our students will be embodying the personas of Heroes and Villains in a live concept of a wax museum. 

Viera High School Theatre Students will present  "We Will Rock You," a musical inspired by and including the music and lyrics of Queen and written by Ben Elton.  This action packed musical puts the viewer into a dystopian rock concert.  The musical will be presented in our auditorium four times, November 22, 23, 24 at 7:00 PM with an additional showing at 2:00 PM on November 24, 2019.  Tickets for “We Will Rock You” are available here:  www.seatyourself.biz/viera and at the door one hour before curtain.
