oorhees Middle School dramaclub’s performances are goinggreen.According to director LetaStrain, the VMS drama club is try-ing to find ways to not only savemoney on productions, but also in-crease production quality andlimit the amount of wasted re-sources.Set designs are using less lum-ber, costumes and other props arerarely purchased new and oftenreused, and paper playbills willsoon be a thing of the past.In the upcoming production of “Footloose,” the sets are madefrom a reusable product calledUnistrut, a product widely used inschools and other buildings forlighting and electrical work.Recommended by set designand construction architect MikeMorgan, Unistrut is widely usedand “incredibly strong,” he said.The 120-pound structures usedin the performance can hold ap-proximately a half a ton, he said.Morgan said they are trying touse as many reusable materials aspossible, and Unistrut would workfor future productions.“I was looking at this and think-ing of all the different shows wecan do and how versatile it is. It re-ally opens us up to more shows,”he said, adding the cost savingcompared to the price of lumber issignificant.

Voorhees music students areputting down the sheet music andpicking up iPads. During a boardof education meeting on Wednes-day, Feb. 27, band director/instru-mental music specialist SharonClarke made a brief presentationon how her classes are using tech-nology as a tool for learningmusic.“I think it’s just another learn-ing tool we can use that’s a lot lessexpensive than having to pur-chase programs and books andthings,” Clarke said.She said her students useApple programs such as Note-a-later, Rhythm Cat, Writing Musicand InsTuner. Each programserves a different purpose in theclassroom, but all help teach thestudents about music.To begin the presentation,Clarke’s fifth-grade studentdemonstrated how to use theNote-a-later, a program thatquizzes children on music read-ing and theory. Rhythm Cat helpsstudents practice rhythm, whilethe Writing Music program al-lows students to draw notes on anelectronic music sheet.Clarke said students use In-sTuner before class to tune in-struments.Teaching music to approxi-mately 275 students at Signal Hill,Voorhees Middle School and E.T.Hamilton, Clarke said the iPadsnot only save money by allowingteachers to purchase fewer mate-rials for the classrooms, they getchildren excited about learning
