Oak Ridge High School Daily Bulletin






Masquers is already gearing up for next year! Come learn more about Puffs, the Fall Play, The Addams Family, the Spring Musical, and other performance and technical opportunities.  Auditions for Puffs will take place the second week back to school on Monday, July 29th. Puffs is “A fast-paced romp through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’ This clever and inventive play gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of the Puffs. To help everyone get ready, we are having an interest meeting on Thursday, May 23rd after school in the auditorium. Encourage anybody and everybody interested in being a part of Masquers to attend! The informational portion will be from 3:15-3:45. Anyone interested in helping with props, costumes or set are encouraged to stay for a reading of the play. See you Thursday! (W-W 5/22) T. Lloyd

It’s idle-free week.  Did you know less than 1% of global land area has safe air quality. The Knoxville area was ranked in the top 25 cities in the U.S. with the worst air pollution in 2019. Vehicle Idling is part of this problem. Turning off your car when it is not in motion can do a lot for the environment. (F 5/17) L. Wilmoth

AP Testing has begun at Roane State Community College’s Goff Building and runs through Friday, May 24th.  It is imperative that students check their school e-mail regularly for testing schedules and important announcements and updates related to testing.  If you are taking a digital test, don’t forget to charge your device and update Bluebook before test day.
