After all the Thanksgiving turkey, the Black Friday shopping frenzy and the Saturday strain of helping to hang holiday lights while precariously perched on a ladder, members of the Class of 2015 kicked back in the evening for a few pints and noshes and some relaxing conversation on November 28 at Brocach Pub on the Capitol Square.

|Art Teacher Mark Thering|
On “Giving Tuesday,” December 1, 2015 we’d like to surprise Mark with a seat in the Sr. Kathleen O’Connell Auditorium, recognizing his unassuming dedication for the past 41 years to the students of Edgewood and his award-winning work on set construction and design. Since 1986, Mark has entered EHS sets into the national ScenoGraphics competition and has brought home 21 awards.
Dedicating an auditorium seat with a commemorative plaque is $1,000, and if enough of us contribute just $10, $20 or more, we can fund this special gift for a terrific man. Please follow this link to the Edgewood High School “Make a Donation” page. Scroll to the bottom and click on the “Donate” button for “specify an amount for another purpose.” If you use Paypal, incude Thering Auditorium seat in the comments box. If you pay by credit card, any gifts received on December 1 will be credited to the purchase of the seat. Any funds over $1,000 will be contributed to ENCORE, the fund that helps support Edgewood’s programs in music, theatre, art and creative writing.
Thank you for helping celebrate the accomplishments and many kindnesses toward students and parents shown by Mark Thering over more than four decades at Edgewood.
Please share this message with friends and family so we can achieve our goal (but don’t tell Mark!).

WISC-TV in Madison, Wisconsin, has named Amanda Arnold ’07 a “Top Notch Teacher.”
Amanda teaches 1st grade at John Muir Elementary School in Madison. She laughs, “It's energetic, it's fun it's crazy, it's controlled chaos.” Amanda continues, “I had a very privileged life when I was little and I was very fortunate for that and I always wanted to get to the kids that maybe weren't as lucky to have that and I wanted to make sure that I could give that to kids.”
Amanda has a master’s degree in experiential education and brings skills and exercises she learned as an undergrad at UW-Madison minoring in theatre and drama to the classroom as teaching and learning tools with plenty of song, dance and games.
View the video story.
You can also see Amanda in action as she and a colleague at Muir Elementary teach a “flash mob” dance!
