SWAG is December 13th, 2014!

What is SWAG?
Seven years ago, Pope High School successfully launched a new community service program called Shop with a Greyhound, or as we fondly call it, SWAG.   By joining our efforts, you are committing to be one of “Santa’s Helpers”.  You will be responsible for raising money in order to take children from Brumby Elementary School shopping for the Holidays.

When is the big day this year?
On December 13, 2014, we will host our 7th annual SWAG event.  By registering, you will be dedicating your time and energy on your child as they enjoy activities here at Pope as well as shopping at Target.  Our goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of these children.

What do I have to do to sign up?
In order to register, you need to visit Pope’s website and complete the online SWAG application.  Then print the permission form, complete it, and turn it in with your $65 donation (see application for donation details) to room 118 in a sealed envelope.  All 3 things (online registration, permission form, and money) must be turned in by October 30th.  Only the first 400 applicants will be accepted

Why do we do this?
It is our belief that Pope students should provide service and leadership to our community.  SWAG is a great community service outreach project that generates good will in the community, yields service hours for Pope club members, and provides the less fortunate with a much needed special day during the holiday season.

Important Dates:
Wednesday, October 15th- online registration open
Thursday, October 30th – online application, permission form and money due
Wednesday, December 10th - SWAG meeting during x-block in theater
Saturday, December 13th- SWAG

Pope Robotics News

The Pope Robotics Team  won the 2014 GRITS Outreach Award. This is an amazing achievement for a second year team. Our outreach event at the East Cobber Parade and Festival, the fact that our whole team attended (20 Rookies!), and our infectious team spirit helped us earn this award. It's really cool - the trophy lights up and makes noise, much like our students. The team spirit our students has is out of this world. We definitely need more blue hairspray and possibly a few more tutus in the future. Congratulations!

Pope Presents Much Ado About Nothing

Pope Drama Club is excited to announce a special arrangement with The New American Shakespeare Company in performing an abbreviated version of one of Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, Much Ado About Nothing. This shortened version is a perfect opportunity to experience Shakespeare on a smaller scale.  This play is a clever comedy of witty verbal combat plus a timeless love story all rolled into one play.  Romances are born, tricks are played, and even stubborn rivals find their wit is no match against each other in this farce of linguistic misunderstandings. It’s a battle of the sexes, a fencing match of verbal sparring and quickness of repartee. Much Ado About Nothing is the ultimate display of Shakespeare’s capacity to make extreme ado about genuine nothing.

Performances at Pope High School are Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18 at 7:00pm.

In celebration of this collaboration with ASC, Pope Players will be performing 1 SHOW ONLY at The New American Shakespeare Theater on Sunday, October 19 at 2:00pm. 

**tickets are limited for this show so don't hesitate too long or they may be gone**

The New American Shakespeare Tavern® is located in downtown Atlanta at 499 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta GA 30308.

Haunted Theater: Noxious Drainpipe

Pope High School Drama Club presents Haunted Theater: Noxious Drainpipe, a unique, theatrical “haunted house” experience (walk-though haunted house). A chemical spill has ruptured in the sewer system and the city has been evacuated. The damage is unknown, and the government has requested that citizens volunteer to scope out and explore the polluted area. While the area has been cited to contain a variety of thugs, bandits, and lowlifes, it should be assured that that no mutations have occurred within its confines…for now…

Dates: October 28, 29, & 30, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Tickets are $5 each and are sold at the door only. Bring two canned goods when you purchase a ticket to get in a second time for free! Canned goods will be donated to Must Ministries in support of the Pope High School Drama Club’s Trick-or-Treat So Kids Can Eat charitable food drive. www.popetheater.org
