Explaining hybrid education is a blend of technology driven learning and traditional learning, he showed pictures of his classroom while explaining the different learning environments.

Mr. Hazen reported:
 
 
This year’s musical, Singin’ in the Rain features a cast of close to 60
 performers and another 20-plus students in stage crew, lights, sound and in the
 pit orchestra. It’
s shaping up to be a great show. On Wednesday, March 5, 2014, t
hey will perform for our community’s senior citizens and our sixt
h-graders. That performance is preceded by a free breakfast served by the Volunteen Club. Also on Wednesday, about 65 students from the middle school will get a VIP tour of the show prior to curtain
 – 
 
they’ll meet the cast
and learn about make-up, lighting and everything that goes into putting on a show and then stay for the performance. The community is invited March 6, 7 and 8 for a 7:00 p.m. performance. The Falcon Foundation is hosting its annual dinner theatre as a fundraiser for both the show and the Foundation.
 
The MiniTHON will take place March 14-15. This fundraiser for the Four Diamonds Fund is a 12

hour event in which students must raise at least $60 to attend and they promise to sta
y on their feet for the entire event. It’s great fun for a great cause. Last year’
s event brought in $50,000.
 
South Hanover Elementary School held an elementary school MiniTHON on February 28 and they raised nearly $24,000.
 
East Hanover Elementary School is also holding a MiniTHON the afternoon
 before the high school’s event. It’s their first time so we’ll wish them all the
 best of luck.
