Dunbar Drama Theater Camp 2015 

The Paul Laurence Dunbar drama department is excited to announce we will be sponsoring a week long, affordable theater camp for elementary and middle school students again this summer. What will students be doing? Students will gain valuable theatrical and literacy tools.   They will rotate through stations of acting, musical theater, choreography, improv games, and crafts to construct a showcase for the public Friday evening.  Click here for sign-up information.     

Extra!  Extra! 

Beginning on April 20, 2015, students in the Fayette County Public Schools will go to school 30 minutes longer each day until the end of the year in order to make up for the instructional time missed this winter. Our school day will continue to start at 7:45 a.m. as it has all year, and students will be dismissed at 3:05 p.m. Bus routes will not change, but drop-off times will be 30 minutes later.  Other important dates include: 

  • School will be in session on May 28 and 29, 2015
  • School will be closed on May 19, 2015 (Election Day) and May 25, 2015 (Memorial Day)
  • State K-PREP Testing will be May 13-15 and May 18-20

Watch Us Shine!
