The South Central Drama Club will be throwing the first pitch of their 2022-2023 season with a little game of baseball in their production of Damn Yankees! In 1950s Washington, D.C., middle-aged baseball fan Joe Boyd watches his favorite team- the Washington Senators- continue to lose to the supposedly unbeatable New York Yankees. His wife, Meg, laments his devotion to the team and wishes he would pay more attention to her during the "Six Months Out of Every Year" where he only cares about the Senators. After a visit from a mysterious stranger named Mr. Applegate, Joe is forced to question how far he would go to see the Senators succeed in beating the Yankees for the pennant. Through beloved musical numbers like "Heart," "Whatever Lola Wants," and "Goodbye, Old Girl," a myriad of bright characters, including reporter Gloria Thorpe, henchwoman Lola, Senators coach Benny Van Buren, and a slew of determined baseball players, tell this exciting tale of baseball, love, and the choices we make to succeed.
Do you enjoy watching the national pastime game of baseball? Do you feel like laughing until your sides hurt? Are you dying to find out if the Washington Senators can finally beat those damn Yankees to win the American League pennant? This show has something for everyone! The Damn Yankees book by George Abbott & Douglas Wallop is based on Douglas Wallop's novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant. Damn Yankees is family-friendly.
SCDC will be performing Damn Yankees on November 4th at 7:00pm, November 5th at 7:00pm, and November 6th at 2:00pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $5.00 or $7.00 at the door. Contact a drama club member to purchase in advance.

Dear Parent/Guardian,As you may know, a new law created in 2021, Indiana House Bill 1093, limits the number of eLearning days a public school can use to three per year. South Central has utilized eLearning days for several years now for teacher professional development days (days scheduled in November and February) and inclement weather days. eLearning days are asynchronous (no live Google Meets) where lessons and assignments are posted by 10:00am and teachers are available to meet, as needed. With this new law, if a school is able to provide 50 percent synchronous (live Google Meets with the teacher) instruction, then the school day will count toward the 180 required days. We will refer to this as "Virtual Learning" instead of eLearning.
South Central is pleased to be selected as a recipient of the Indiana Department of Education's Fall 2022 Digital Learning Grant! This competitive grant opportunity continues the work around high-quality blended and online teaching practices by focusing on three strands concerning best practices for blended and online learning, training, support of universal design for learning (UDL), and the purchase and training of assistive technologies.
The Indiana Department of Education awarded a total of 28 schools with the grant in their continued efforts to provide funds to expand technology integration at public school corporations. You can read the full press release on the IDOE website.
