There once was a boy and a girl, who were very very bored. You see, they were too privileged to play outside, and they had no Minecraft so they never played. Then one day came a cat with a bat! He said come with me to learn about that. You see, 'that' was fun and he tried many ways. But alas, the two kids didn't like anything. So the cat grabbed his bat, and said, 'I know how to help these shrubs!' And he showed them the world of Drama Club! So they grabbed their form from room 327 And went to Drama Club in the Cafeteria. Come to Drama Club in the cafeteria this Friday from 4-5. Don't forget your permission form!
