The Wolfpack Players Present - 13 - The Musical!

The Award Winning Wolfpack Players Present:

Jason Robert Brown's 13 - The Musical!

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County, Songs for a New World) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain... or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?

Students in front of Special Olympics Banner

Wilkes-Barre Area Makes It Rain

On Thursday, October 12, 2023 the Wilkes Barre Area High School held their annual fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania. The district holds a fundraiser every year in support of our Unified Track and Field Team, which is made up of people with and without intellectual disabilities. Last year the high school held an inclusive Pep Rally for the spring athletes and topped it off with a Polar Pop. Students were able to donate a dollar to vote for which principal they wanted to see an ice cold water balloon get popped over. Every pop helped support sports training and competition in our community. The district as a whole was able to raise $3,700 last year.
