You’ve seen the signs around school and wondered what the heck was going on. Well, you’re about to find out!
Antigone on Facebook, brought to you by the Grade 10 English A class launches next week. Here’s a great chance to spend hours on Facebook while telling your parents, “But Mom! It’s homework!”
Seriously,–and it’s a serious play– the students have updated and scripted the plot of Antigone, setting it in a modern international school. You’ll follow along with the “actors” but also get to participate by adding your own comments to their status updates. Think of it as live, interactive theatre!

ISU Library staff, faculty and students traveled to Baaganuur on Saturday, joining with BookBridge (a German NGO) and the area Peace Corps volunteer
to help set up a local public library. Volunteers labeled and barcoded over 1,000 books, making a big dent in the fiction collection.
“It was a long, bumpy ride,” said 10th grader Sodbileg, “But it was really worth it. It was cool to know you were helping people get books to read.”
