The Arcadia student film “Orientation” was selected as the only High School entry at the Fifth Annual Jerome Film Festival, September 7-10, 2017. The other films selected for the Student Films Competition were all made by college film-makers. Current Arcadia students involved in the film were Jacob Staudenmaier (Director/Editor), Lindsay Formica (Screenplay Writer/Sound), and Heather DeGroote (Photography). The students are enrolled in Advanced Film-Making taught by ANN & Film Instructor Eric Luse. The film concerns an awkward man who attempts to have a successful job interview, but it ends up going south very quickly. The Jerome Film Festival was recently selected by MovieMaker Magazine as among the “Top 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World”. More information about the Jerome Film Festival can be found at www.jeromefilmfestival.com.

Thanks to the collective efforts of the Arcadia Garden Club, Race Tuomisto-Bell’s Eagle Scout Project, Mr. Bodznick’s Biology Honors Class and National Honor Society volunteers, the garden beds on the Arcadia campus have been greatly expanded and enhanced. For numerous hours this past Saturday, between 30-40 volunteers worked on digging trenches, shoveling dirt and rocks, and laying concrete/bricks for the new garden beds. Additional work still needs to be done before the whole project is completed. Great job to all the volunteers for helping with this important project on the Arcadia campus. - Heidi Staudenmaier
