  • Perseverance

    Posted by Stacey Flanagan on 4/6/2018 12:00:00 PM

    It's that time of the school year where we have a seemingly LONG time until the summer break arrives, and we are doing it without a holiday or school break!  This is a fun time with students as they are preparing to graduate, promote to the next grade, or transition to something new.

    I have the good fortune to teach a section of middle school, and these students cannot "WAIT" until they are freshmen.  My freshmen are ready to not be the youngest.  Sophomores are ready to quit being a one-word oxymoron (see what sophomore means by clicking this link).  Juniors are ready to be seniors; seniors are ready to GRADUATE!

    I always ask newly-graduated students, when they return to a school event, if high school seems different since they graduated.  So far, 100% of my former students say YES!  I never realized how "high schoolish I was until I went to college/work, etc.".  

    For teachers we are trying to finish the year strong, and prepare for the next school year at the same time.  

    Encourage your student/child to finish strong!  Grades are important, but so is having balance in their lives.  

    Ask your student whether they are a Brick Pig, Twig Pig, or Straw Pig.

    Thank you for sharing your students with Theatre Arts!

    If I don't blog before school is out (I'm a horribly-forgetful blogger), have a restful summer break.

  • It's a New Year!

    It's a new school year, and I'm at training.  We're on a break, and I'm working on updating my website, etc.  I just wanted to tell you that I am excited for the upcoming year, and we'll do incredible things!  Students, enjoy your last week of summer!  See you next week!

  • Audio Video Production Classes

    Posted by Stacey Raymer on 9/13/2016 8:00:00 AM

    The AVP classes have been planning and filming a story called "Project X" where an object is featured going through its day.  We have water bottles, a pencil bag, and Mr. and Mrs. Potato Heads moving around the school, going to lunch, and other places.  Students are learning about camera shots and angles and how to edit footage down to what is essential to telling a story.


    I forget that it takes students much longer to edit than I anticipate.  We use Adobe Premiere Elements for our editing software, but we're soon getting Adobe Premeire Pro, which is what the professionals use.

    The students we have this year are talented and seem to like what they are learning.

  • So Tired...

    Posted by Stacey Raymer on 8/22/2016

    It is 5:04 PM, and I'm looking at the clock wondering when I can go to bed.  The first day of school is that exhausting, but today was great.  The high school students rotated through different classes to learn how to use their Chromebooks, Google Classroom, CPR, Cornell Notes, Kagan Structures and many other fun activities.  But at the day's end, I was one tired teacher.  Just when I thought I had NO energy left, it was time to teach Middle School Theatre, and playing some theatre game, was a great way to work up a sweat.  I'll be feeling all of that movement tomorrow, but I can't wait to return.  Blue Ridge is a special place, and I'm happy to teach with a great team.  :)

  • One Day More

    Posted by Stacey Raymer on 8/19/2016

    Only one day more until students return!  I got to see many bright and shining faces last night at MEET THE TEACHER.  Some students even came without their parents just to say hello!  Meeting new students and their parents is fun.  

    Teachers are a bit stressed this week making sure everything is just right; however, all of that is worth it when students return for another amazing school year.  2016-2017 is going to be the best school year.  BRHS is growing.  We have over 200 students now.  When I started teaching here we had less than 175 students.  Houses are being built; people are relocating from the hustling city to the bucolic hills of Blue Ridge; however, that doesn't mean they won't receive a wonderful education.

    My goal the first week of school is to learn everyone's name, and to learn one interesting fact about each student.  

    Until Monday,


    Mrs. Raymer

  • Back to School

    Posted by Stacey Raymer on 8/15/2016

    It's that time.  Back to school for teachers, but don't think we haven't been thinking about school for a while.  This summer I attended SummerFest in San Marcos, where hundreds of theatre teachers assembled to hear best-in-class theatre workshops.  We've also as a staff attended several other trainings to refresh our skills so we are giving you, student and parents, a top notch education.

    School will start shortly!  See you at Meet The Teacher on August 18.
