Students perform comedy, drama
James Wetz, a senior at Canyon High, won the prestigious Wilson Robertson Memorial Arts Scholarship of $1,500 for the pencil drawings he drew in front of a judge. The scholarship was awarded by New Braunfels resident Olga Wilson in memory of her late husband and daughter who were both artists. The runner-up was Joseph Judkins of New Braunfels High.
Canyon Middle uses the Character First curriculum program to remind students about the character traits we should all possess — generosity, forgiveness and loyalty. Spring Branch Middle uses Project Wisdom, another character education program, to remind students about the importance of respect, sensitivity, and selfcontrol. Occasionally, local celebrities, such as attorney Carter Casteel, stop at Spring Branch to share a few words of wisdom about the character trait of the day.

Senior citizens help pass on the power of reading
By KARI HUTCHISON CISD Public Information Officer
Comal ISD senior patrons are passing on the power of reading to students at Mountain Valley and Bill Brown elementary schools through the newly initiated RSVP America Reads tutoring program.
“The program is designed for people who are 55 years old and older,” said Rose Cervin, coordinator of the program for the district. “We won’t refuse any volunteers, though!”
RSVP America Reads is funded through Texas Lutheran University, United Way of Comal County and Comal school district. Its purpose is to give early readers and their senior tutors additional practice time and the opportunity to share their love of books.
Training is provided for volunteers. Effective tutoring techniques are covered as well as how to understand the reading process. Tutors are reimbursed mileage to and from the schools, and they are covered under a liability insurance policy through RSVP.
lf you are interested in serving as a tutor and helping the reading program expand into other Comal district schools, contact Cervin at (830) 228-5511 or at [email protected]
Whether it’s a comedy or a drama you are ready to see, high school students in Comal school district have what you want this month.
The two plays are one-act plays they recently performed in district competition.
“Mixed Nuts,” a love story comedy, will be performed at 7 p.m. April 19-20 and April 26-28 and at 2:30 p.m. April 28 at Smithson Valley High School. Tickets are $3 for adults and $2 for students and senior citizens.
This one-act play, by Simon Donoghue and Nancy Manera, is about an unusual assortment of people who must interact with each other. Its all about love, honesty, acceptance and personal growth.
The classic 16th century moral play, “Everyman,” will be presented as a one-act play by Canyon High School students at 7 p.m. April 20-21 and at 2 p.m. April 22. Tickets are $2 at the door.
The play is about Everyman, who is summoned by Death. He desperately searches for someone to go with him and in the process realizes the importance of priorities and true friendship.
For information, call SVHS at 904-7273 or CHS at 625-6251.
