STUDENTS USE DRONE TO SHARE THE HISTORY OF DPB SLATE

Picture of students flying a drone over slate sidewalks in Delta, PAOur seventh grades students have been working with drones and created two YouTube videos.  The first video is Sidewalks and the link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62crFGzuYMk; the second video is Make My Tombstone of Blue - Black Slate and the link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vit6cpoVW_U.  These videos have evolved to a professional music album "King of the Quarry" as a result of a collaborative project between a group 7th grade students at South Eastern Middle School and Van Wagner of Danville, PA.  Students conducted research on the rich history of the Peach Bottom slate region in southern PA.  Van Wagner used the students’ research to guide them through the process of singing and songwriting in his own unique style. The hard work of Van Wagner and the fifteen students listed in this album will hopefully be enjoyed by all members of our community for years to come. The music album can be purchased at www.vanwagnermusic.com, iTunes, and Amazon.


 

KD DRAMA ANNOUNCES SPRING PLAY:
THESE SHINING LIVES

The KD Drama club will be presenting These Shining Lives as their Spring Play on Thursday and Friday, May 3rd and 4th at 7:00 p.m.  All Tickets are $8.00 and can be purchased at the door.
These Shining Lives revolves around the real life circumstances of women in the 1920s who worked in a watch factory painting watch faces with glowing radium rich paint. While the characters and company in These Shining Lives are fictitious, the story of the Radium Girls and the toxic and deadly levels of radium poisoning of over 4,000 factory workers is true.  The real life Radium Girls took their company to court and achieved a long-lasting victory over corporations with poor workplace conditions and worker’s compensation that is still in effect today.

The production staff includes:  Ms. Barbara Peterson as director, Mr. James Craley as Assistant Director and Technical Director, and Mr. Chad Druck as Set Builder.  For more information, call the high school main office at 717-382-4871.
