  • Potato pie-in-the-sky, down to earth

  • Love, adventure — and curry

  • Tickets to Antioch School’s Auction Gala are still available

    The Antioch School’s Older Group was recently immersed in storytelling and theater, thanks to special guest Christopher Westhoff, of the Mad River Theater Works performing arts company, who spent a portion of each day last week at the school. Westhoff helped students develop their own play about the life and influence of retired Older Group teacher Bill Mullins, which they performed last Friday. Pictured, from left, are Max Florkey, Merida Kuder-Wexler, Ayla Current, Lucy Dennis, Jackson Grote and Antonio Chaiten. (Photo by Carol Simmons)
