Message from the Principal

October, 2018

Dear Parents and Students:

The drama students will be presenting " The Laramie Project" at Abington High School on November 1 and 2, 2018.  As you may or may not know, "The Laramie Project" chronicles the aftermath of the brutal assault and murder of University of Wyoming student, Matthew Shepard in 1998.  The Tectonic Theater Group, a New York City based troupe, traveled to Laramie in the days and months after the crime to interview the people of Laramie and others associated with the case. This play contains mature themes and language but never in a gratuitous way or played for shock value. The words are real quotes spoken by real people. We have taken the liberty of removing or altering some of the harshest language while keeping the integrity of the original text intact.  In other cases, we felt the language needed to remain in order to capture the essence of what was being said and by whom.  Due to the mature theme and language we are restricting attendance to students over 14 years old unless accompanied by a parent/guardian. 

Four educators will conduct an on-site Collaborative Conference visit with Abington High School on November 1 and 2, 2018. The purpose of this Collaborative Conference is to review and determine from an outside professional viewpoint the extent to which the school is aligned to the Standards for Accreditation and identify priority areas for growth and improvement.
As part of the Conference, the team will meet with school constituents, review the school’s Self-Reflection, visit a number of classes, and examine examples of student work submitted by the school. During the comprehensive self-reflection, the faculty attempted to identify the school’s strengths and determined those areas in which changes would be beneficial.
