Favored by high school students, blurry-eyed after late study. Cold weather fashion includes an oversized hooded sweatshirt which envelopes all extremities.
- Advantages: saves on precious locker space for books and oversized social studies projects.
- Disadvantages: masks impulsive shivering.
2. "Maximum Preparation"
Favored by preschoolers and primary school children who have been dressed by someone else. Characterized by boots, snow pants, two jackets, hat plus a hood, mittens on a string and a scarf.
- Advantages: warmth
- Disadvantages: limited mobility, and requires a patient teacher or caregiver to snap, attach, Velcro and then give a gentle push to allow forward motion.
Favored by adolescent girls who actually plan ahead what they are going to wear.
- Advantages: Enough layers to be warm, and can be sensibly shed when the student arrives at school.
- Disadvantage: Not allowing enough time for the layer selection the evening before or the morning of school - results in asking parents to drive student to school because there is simply not enough time to get dressed and make the bus.
4. "Mix & Match"
Favored by adolescent boys who have given no thought to what they are going to wear until halfway out the door.
- Advantages: requires little planning.
- Disadvantages: Frequently choosing gloves, a scarf or a hat which belong to someone else - leading to disruptions in domestic harmony.
The White Bear Area Senior Center is a program of the White Bear Lake Area Schools Community Services & Recreation Department.
Setting the Stage
Fueled by the recent success of theatre programs in the White Bear Lake area, this spring is sure to be a season to remember with upcoming performances at every level. On January 31, members of the White Bear Lake Area High School One Act Play team competed in the Section 4AA finals with their performance of "Antigone" after advancing from the preliminary competition. For the second year in a row, the team walked off stage proudly holding a trophy after receiving first place in 2012 and second place at this year's contest. Members of the high school cast now set their sights on auditions for their April production of Shakespeare's tragedy, "Macbeth" - a story of ambition, fate, deception and treachery.
Also showing in April, the middle school players will be presenting the classic Disney musical, "Beauty and the Beast, Junior" under the direction of Connie Hamilton. The program recently secured a $1,500 grant from the Twin Cities Opera Guild, Inc. for the third consecutive year. The grant will help support the production by allowing for enhanced lighting, stunning costumes and a memorable set design. "The kids deserve the best experience possible," says Connie. "We have a great cast and crew, and this will make them that much more outstanding!"
Elementary students at Otter Lake Elementary, Oneka Elementary and Matoska International IB World School will also team up with Ashland Productions this March to present performances of "Pirates! The Musical". Set sail with the cast for a mighty adventure on the high seas! Tickets are on sale now by visiting the Ashland Productions website. We hope to see you at the shows!
