BAS - March Superintendent Update

BAS - March Superintendent Update

From: http://www.bas-k12.org

We are nearing the end of second trimester at Belding Area Schools. Somehow, the first two-thirds of the year have flown by. Schools across the State of Michigan continue to be faced with much uncertainty. With that said, two things are certain. First, we too will continue to face economic and achievement challenges due to changes at the state level. Second, the staff at Belding Area Schools will (as always) continue to work tirelessly each day so we may offer the best quality education possible to our students.

And Then There Was One - Mystery Dinner Theater

And Then There Was One - Mystery Dinner Theater

This Comedy Murder Mystery Dinner Theater takes place Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3. Dinner is scheduled for 6:30pm and the Show begins at 7:30pm. Dinner & Show - $20, Show only - $15

Ten people received a mysterious invitation to a weekend party at the Reef Mansion on a tiny island. When they arrived, the host is missing but an ominous tape was left that brings evil upon the guests. In humorous ways, one by one the guests die, suspecting each other. One guest is left, who thinks she shot the killer but a twist in the end will leave you to ponder.

All ages will enjoy this comical performance directed by Mrs. Ruth Hansen!

Tickets are available at the Greenville Area Community Center at 900 E. Kent Road in Greenville or by calling (616)754-9163.
