Walker Stage Left Theatre presents spring play

play posterWalker Stage Left Theatre students presented their final play of the year, Pirates! Theodore Thud and the Quest for Weird Beard, on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the Walker School auditorium.

Beginning in fifth grade, students at Walker and Buford can perform with the after-school club Stage Left Theater, which offers two free, family-friendly performances each year to packed crowds.  Recent plays include The Trial of Goldilocks, Peter PanThe Wizard of OzBeauty and the Beast, and more.

Under the direction of Rod and Kristina Durrer, the Walker Upper Elementary School and Buford Middle School programs were combined in 2014 to bring the fine art of theatre to 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in the Charlottesville City Schools.

Pirates! Theodore Thud and the Quest for Weird Beard tells the tale of a friendly game of pirates that becomes all too real when overzealous Theodore accidentally falls into a giant sinkhole and wakes up to find himself amongst real high sea swashbucklers. Before getting back to the real world, Theodore is forced on an epic journey with his companion Harriet the Ghost in a quest to find the notorious pirate Weird Beard and foil the mutinous Mr. Clunky Bones. Will Theodore be able to save Captain Cramp Hand’s ship from falling into evil clutches and return to his friends in time for ice cream?

Clark Bees are ready for testing!

“The Bees will rock that test, rock that test, no worries!” sings the Clark Elementary School staff in their annual Standards of Learning video to encourage students as they prepare for end-of-year SOL tests.

Dancing and lip syncing to the tune of singer Meghan Trainor’s pop hit  “All about that Bass,” the Clark staff aims to have a little fun while inspiring their students to do their best.

Sophomores earn certification for teen Mental Health First Aid pilot program

UPDATE: In June, students David Green and Lamont Bullard traveled with Mr. Williams to Las Vegas to join other students from schools that piloted the Teen Mental Health First Aid Program. While there, the students met members of the Born This Way Foundation, including a special visit with Lady Gaga and an on-stage appearance at her concert that evening. See them on stage here:

(April, 2019) This spring sophomores at CHS participated in the teen Mental Health First Aid

program, a course that trains high school students how to identify and respond to developing mental health or substance abuse problems among their friends.

CHS is one of eight high schools in the nation (two from Virginia) chosen to pilot this program developed by the National Council for Behavioral Health. Supported by Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation and researchers at Johns Hopkins University, the course specifically teaches students an action plan: Look, Ask, Listen, Help.

“We think it is really important to put the tools in the students’ hands so they know how to help a friend who is showing signs of mental illness or substance abuse,” said CHS School Counselor Sarah Elaine Hart.

Ms. Hart and Mr. Williams demonstrate how to help during a substance abuse crisis.

Hart taught the three-week course along with her colleague Dominique Williams and Region Ten Prevention Director Emily Warren.

“Overall, we have found that most kids want to know what to do when a friend is struggling, even when it feels uncomfortable and hard,” said Hart. “They want to be equipped with the tools to help.”

The first national program of its kind, the course will be offered nationwide next year to students in grades 10th-12th. Students who complete the course earn Mental Health First Aid certifications.
