Education Partners, good afternoon:

On behalf of all of the fans of the 16-4 Chicago White Sox – the best record by far in all of major league baseball, by the way -- welcome to today’s edition. Yes, even you fans of the 10-9 Cubs…

Lots of news, with much more to come later this week.

“Little Shop of Horrors” is a humorous and dark musical about Seymour, a nerdy plant store worker, who magically stumbles upon a very interesting plant.  As soon as he introduces the plant to his customers, the store becomes an immediate success.  In order for the plant to grow any further, however, Seymour must fulfill the plant’s most natural thirst – human blood. Tickets are $5 for students, $7 for adults.  Tickets can be reserved by phone and are also available at the box office 30 minutes before the show.  Seating is not assigned; it is first come first served. For further information or to reserve tickets call 587-7103, Ext 3.

 And finally, the St. Charles City Hall’s Main Street display window this week features a very creative display about District 303’s new Vision Statement and Goals. The display was created and coordinated by the talented Wild Rose/Munhall Elementary School art teacher Rebecca Hubbs. It’ll be up through Sunday, May 1, 2005. Thanks to Ms. Hubbs, and please check it out.

Have a great afternoon,
