Dates are October 27th (Preview), 28th, and 29th at 7pm, and October 30th at 2pm at Hillsdale High School’s Theatre. Tickets are $17 for adults; $12 for students/seniors; $10 preview night.

Frank Hunt_Cross Country Coach.jpgFrank Hunt, Aragon High School's girls’ cross-country coach, has been named a fall Central Coast Section Honor Coach in his sport. Frank has been coaching runners at the San Mateo school since 2008. Prior to that, he did the same at Burlingame High School for six years. According to a CCS announcement regarding Frank’s honor, he “always puts the well-being of his student-athletes above athletic success.” In addition, “His tireless work to teach and coach the right way is clear to all of those who have the privilege of working with him and being coached by him.” Congratulations to both Frank and Aragon!


All SMUHSD schools recently participated in the California Great Shake Out, an annual event aimed at preparing communities for a major earthquake. All of California is at higher risk compared to the rest of the country. Most earthquake-related injuries and deaths are caused by collapsing walls and roofs, flying glass and falling objects. It is extremely important for a person to move as little as possible to reach the place of safety he or she has identified because most injuries occur when people try to move more than a short distance during the shaking. When our students were told to practice, they took it seriously and had some fun at the same time. They practiced the three big actions to take when the shaking starts: DROP, COVER AND HOLD ON!

Hello Dolly Poster.jpgBurlingame Panther Theater features over 40 talented BHS students in Hello Dolly! First produced on Broadway in 1964, Hello Dolly! won a record 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical.  Set in New York City during the early 1900’s, this family musical headlines the brassy “Dolly,” a “meddling” matchmaker and the grumpy and very wealthy Horace Vandergelder.  Make a night of toe-tapping fun with the BHS cast – tickets on sale NOW at:  www.BHSPantherTheatre.com.
