  • Plucky harpists learn some string theory at Antioch School

    Artist-in-residence Holly Pratt spent a week at The Antioch School sharing her love of harp music and history. Pictured are students Landon Rhoads (far left), Danny Grote, Cecila Comerford and Francesca Brecha.

    The children sat on a rug in a semicircle around the visiting harpist in the art/science room at The Antioch School, each hugging her or his own child-sized harp, their faces pressed close to the strings.

  • Youth, elders dialogue about drug dogs, trust

    According to several Yellow Springs youth, the schools and the village are not as supportive and inclusive of youth as they should be, and the youth need more of a voice in making the decisions that affect them.

  • YS Promise moves ahead

    What if someone told you that if your child goes through the Yellow Springs Schools, he or she will be eligible to receive a scholarship to attend college? Wouldn’t you want to move here and send your kids to school here?

  • Rwandans open up world for YS

    Teachers Fidele Havugimana and Tony Gasana, from left, back row; students Kelly Ngamije, Eugenia Uwamariya, front; and headmaster Brother Straton Malisaba, right, from Ecôle des Sciences secondary school in Byimana, Rwanda, are teaching and attending classes at YSHS for six weeks due to the efforts of retired Central State chemistry professor Al Schlueter.

    It was an ordinary night in the village. Traven was showing Tony — both Yellow Springs High School students — how to make Rice Crispy treats. Another student, Kelly, was doing homework alongside her brothers and sisters.

  • Football to continue in ‘09

    Yellow Springs High School will field a football team next fall, YSHS Principal John Gudgel announced at the Nov. 13 meeting of the Yellow Springs board of education. “We feel confident that we will have enough players,” Gudgel said.

  • Zagory gets a kick out of football

    YSHS Class of 2004 valedictorian Aaron Zagory is the place kicker for the Stanford University football team. He is pictured here with his sister, Jessica Zagory, during a visit in Palo Alto, Calif.

    As the argument about the value of retaining a football program at Yellow Springs High School raged on in the community forum pages of the News in recent weeks, one of the school’s graduates was steady as a rock, kicking field goals and extra points for the Stanford University football team.

  • YSHS ‘Midsummer’ mischief, mayhem with a ’50s flare

    In their 1950s version of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ Kelly Miller as Helena, center, is driven mad by her admirers, Demetrius, played by Max Fleishman, and Lysander, played by Adam Zaremsky, who is himself sought by Hermia, played by Zyna Bakari. The mischeivous Puck, Shelley Murphy, looks on from her perch. Performances will take place at Mills Lawn gym on Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 14, 15, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m., and Sundays, Nov. 16 and 23, at 2 p.m.

    If Shakespeare had lived in the 1950s, how he would have dressed, where he would have lived and the way he would have set his stage is surely just what the Yellow Springs High School thespians have dreamed up for the fall production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

  • YSHS teacher Lutz-Hackett named national Star

    YSHS English teacher Elizabeth Lutz-Hackett was awarded the U.S. Dept. of Education “Star of Teaching” award in a surprise presentation on Wednesday, Oct. 1.

    The cheer that went up in the gym at Yellow Springs High School last Wednesday afternoon was so palpable it was like a punch in the chest. Was it a state championship basketball game? No. The students that filled the bleachers seemed to realize it was even more important than that.
