Hot Rod is Acting Ups! 12th production. Past productions include Through the Looking Glass, Seussical, Honk!, Dear Edwina, Tied to the Tracks and Mirror Image.

Welcome New Students to the 2013-2014 School Year

We had our first ever 5th grade visitation for Arroyo Seco and Jackson Avenue students last March 14 and 15 and the kids had a fantastic time.  They got to see performances by the East Avenue band and chorus as well meet and listen to students from all of our elective courses.  They were able to meet the principal and vice principal as well as some of the teachers and were led on a tour of campus by East Avenue leadership students where they were able to become familiar with the campus and ask lots of questions.  They ended the morning with a fun treat in the cafeteria.  Overall, the 5th graders were extremely excited to start middle school at East Avenue.
