Despite the holiday festivities and fun found during the December season, East students return to school with a tenacious stamina, as well as a blatant drive for persistence. Within a school full of events, some of the proceedings may be easily glanced over by the student population. Get the inside scoop on all the activities occurring at East during January.

The Music Department must quickly recover from the lax holiday season in order to adequately prepare for their “Kaleidoscope” concert on Thursday, Jan. 28. Unique in its purpose, the Kaleidoscope Concert is preceded by a Silent Auction, whose proceeds benefit the Music Department. It is also the only vocal concert in the entire year that harbors one universal theme. The theme for the 2015 Kaleidoscope Concert is “Disney.” Both Ms. Laurie Lausi and Ms. Heather Lockart, East choir directors, have chosen challenging music for their singing groups. Tunes from Disney favorites such as Frozen and The Lion King will be featured, according to Lockart.

Filled with only the most experienced thespians of Cherry Hill High School East, Studio II is a premier acting class directed by Mr. Tom Weaver. The Studio II actors will present their annually held show with this year’s entitled “A Time in Theatre,” on Thursday, Jan. 22. The small show will take place in a more intimate setting than the other main stage shows throughout the year as they will be held in the Little Theatre at 7:30 p.m. The meticulously rehearsed and technically detailed performance will feature a variety of skits throughout the night for a cost of only $8.

The sophomore Student Government Association (SGA) is tirelessly preparing for the Sophomore Cotillion. The dance, which is to be held on Friday, Feb. 6, will feature elements to accentuate its The Great Gatsby theme.
