Houston High School presents Unplugged on Friday, October 31st and Saturday, November 1st at 7:00 PM. Admission is $5 and athletic passes are not accepted.
Could you live without technology for 30 Days? That's the question in this smart and fun play by award-winning playwright Laurie Bryant. Ten years ago, tiny North Creek, Wisconsin became "The Most Wired Town in America" thanks to a contest-winning essay from local resident Abigail Rickman. As their prize, SOLOtech outfitted the entire town with state-of-the-art wireless technology. Fast forward to now and the citizens of North Creek do absolutely everything virtually. But when Tom Morris, the founder of SOLOtech, learns that Abigail has sent back her SOLOpad, claiming life was better without it, he seeks Abigail out, concerned that there might be some truth in what she's saying. Despite the protests of his assistants, he offers the town $30 million dollars to unplug for an entire month. With a host of "plugged in" teenagers, an online science teacher who relishes never having to dress professionally from the waist down, and Winston, a virtual hamster whose very life is dependent on SOLO technology, the residents of North Creek learn a valuable lesson about moderation and the time and place for technology in our lives.
Mandatory Preseason Meeting
The Preseason informational meeting for winter sports will be held on Monday, October 27, 2014 at 6:00 PM in the commons. The Ohio High School Athletic Association requires the Houston High School Athletic Department to hold preseason informational meetings for parents and athletes in grades 7-12. A parent and athlete are only required to attend one of these meetings per school year. If a parent and athlete attended the fall meeting, the parent and athlete do not have to attend the winter or spring meetings. Please mark your calendars and plan accordingly. Again, this is a mandatory meeting and your child’s participation will be declined until the requirement is met.

The money donated through this program serves all of Houston's athletic teams. Your support is greatly appreciated.
