SHE KILLS MONSTERS: YOUNG ADVENTURES EDITION

She Kills Monsters   Final

 

She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes stumbles upon Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, she finds herself catapulted into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was her sister’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and ’90s pop culture, acclaimed playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Help Kids Live Free From Hunger

 Live Free Campaign Banner

What is the Live Free campaign? 

Every day, many children and youth in our community live without basic necessities that many of us take for granted. Often, they arrive at school without the proper nutrition they need to help them focus in class. Put simply, they are too hungry to learn.

Our Help Kids Live Free From Hunger campaign, aims to raise funds to support our Food & Friends student nutrition programs, offering thousands of local children and youth access to nutritious food while at school.

You can also make a Monetary Donation on School Cash Online.  You can require a Tax Receipt for any donations over $20.00.

This Campaign will end on March 1, 2024
