Radium Girls

Posted on:

Come see the dramatic, historical production of Radium Girls, November 3-5 at Alpenrose Dairy Opera House, presented by students of Westside Christian High School.

Inspired by a true story, the play depicts the lives of working class women in the 1920s who, by painting the dials of “glow-in-the-dark” wristwatches, begin to fall mysteriously and fatally ill due to the radioactive paint they handled. This intriguing story prompts viewers to consider both past and present labor and worker safety issues,  scientific discovery, and consumerism in America.

Dates and showtimes are: Friday, Nov. 3, 7 pm; Saturday, Nov. 4, 2 pm and 7 pm; and Sunday, Nov. 5, 2 pm.

Admission is $6 for students and seniors, $8 for adults.  Tickets can be purchased at the door  at Alpenrose Dairy Opera House, 6149 SW Shattuck Rd, Portland.

Radium Girls was written by D. W. Gregory and first published in 2003.

Apples with bit of sweet honey.

Last week Mr. Westerberg and some of our brand new international students used a Hebrew Rosh Hashana tradition of apples dipped in honey to express a blessing on each other to have a sweet new year. We have 34 international students from 8 different countries as part of our student body.

Here’s wishing them all a sweet new year in their new home!

Enjoying a sweet treat!

Beach Soccer Road Trip

At the beach!

Girls soccer opened their 2017 season Monday at Taft High School with a convincing 7 nil win.

Freshman Morgan Petersen opened the scoring in the third minute and the Eagles kept it going from there with Kaia Lunz, Lauren Demaris and Laura Staropoli all finding the net.  GK Lexi Rodriguez, along with defenders Mary Nordlund, Megan Larson, Peyton Jones, Hollyn Dugan, Olivia Mills and Kate Groscup preserved the clean sheet. Kelsey Moore, Aly Larson, Kayley Cross, Bella McMahon, Brooklyn Rodriguez, and Natalie Van Gordon all played quality minutes and contributed to the win.

Immediately after the match the team headed to Cape Lookout State Park for two nights of tent camping, great food (courtesy of experienced camper Rob Groscup), campfires and hours on the beach.  The girls even enjoyed a short ride into town to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory for free cheese samples and fresh Tillamook ice cream.

A return to Portland and some focused trainings are next on the agenda as the season schedule will have its share of significant challenges.
