Second annual UD Shakespeare competition!

On Thursday, January 8, 2015, UDHS English Dept. Chair Kelsey Bierling and Gifted Seminar teacher Jessica Baton hosted the second annual Upper Darby High School Shakespeare Competition, a qualifier for the Philadelphia Branch of the English Speaking Union's Shakespeare Competition. Participating students were tasked with choosing a monologue from one of Shakespeare's plays and performing it dramatically on stage. Students were prohibited from using costumes or props, so their acting ability could truly shine. Hedgerow Theater Company members Lily Dwoskin and Susan Wefel served as judges. Freshman Cleo Hoey came in first place for her recitation of one of Juliet's monologues from Romeo and Juliet. The following students came in second place, third place, and honorable mention respectively: William Irving, Sophia Desko, and Mallory Perry. Cleo will go on to perform her monologue and recite a selected sonnet at the Philadelphia competition on February 16, 2015 at Adrienne Theater.

Day On, Not Off

On January 19, 2015, a group of 85+ students, teachers, and parents joined together for the Martin Luther King Jr. Service Day at Upper Darby High School. Students and parents helped clean and paint the bathrooms, as well as dust the windows and display cases. We were also joined by member of House of Representatives, James R. Santora and Mayor Thomas N. Micozzie that afternoon. As well as our superintendent Dr. Richard Dunlap as they all thanked us for our services.
Thank you again to all who helped Upper Darby High School, your help is much appreciated!

This year, the Upper Darby Arts and Education Foundation's annual Gala's theme will be "Heroes Live Forever". The Gala showcases students from every school in the district and their musical talents. The foundation production team needs your help! If you have anyone in your life that you consider a hero, whether they'd be a teacher, staff member, parent, community member, student/classmate... please consider writing a short paragraph or blur about that person. Tell us why this person is your hero and how they've impacted your life or even our Upper Darby Community. We would like to (hopefully) honor these heroes at the Gala on January 17th, 2015.

 Please email any letters to: voicesofud@gmail.com
