TRITON MIDDLE SCHOOL Explorations
Out-of-school-time (OST) PROGRAMS
Musical Theatre (Saturday morning program):
Students will produce and perform the musical “James and the Giant Peach”. They will learn essential theatrical/musical skills and be introduced to theater games that will increase their improvisational talents. So, come join your friends, have fun and explore your creative and theatrical side. Rehearsals will be held in the Triton High School Auditorium on Saturday mornings starting Oct. 7th from 9:00 to noon with additional rehearsals scheduled the week of April 2nd (show week). For additional information on “James and the Giant Peach” please go towww.broadwayjr.com and enjoy! Performances are scheduled for Friday evening, April 6th with Saturday afternoon and evening shows on the 7th. Students will need to arrange for their own transportation to and from rehearsals/performances. Tryouts are Saturday, October, 7th from 9am – 12noon in the auditorium.
Open to grades 7 – 9.
Media Beginner & Advanced (six week program):
Students will learn the basics of video production through the use of cameras, and editing equipment. They will be encouraged to conceptualize and produce their own videos, working by themselves or small groups. The class will be limited in size, so we ask that only those serious about learning video production, while working with others in a team environment, apply for the course. Program meets Tuesdays starting Oct. 10th from 2:30 to 3:45, through November 7th, in Triton’s TV studio, located in the building with the blue roof at the end of the football stadium.
Open to grades 7 & 8.
Robotic Science (six week program):
Join the fun and learn about robotic concepts through teamwork and problem solving challenges. Students will collaboratively design, build, and program the Lego Robotics’ devices using robotic kits and software. This is an opportunity for young people to be creative and explore different ways to engineer and design robotics components for real world application. Just think….maybe you want to be the next young engineer who can change our world with your design. Program meets Wednesdays in room M-100, started Oct. 4 from 2:30 to 3:45 and runs through November 8th.
Open to grades 7 & 8.
Pies On Wheels with Mrs. Bolduc (six week program):
Meals On Wheels is a national program administrated by our local Council on Aging. With the help of volunteers they provide a hot meal to those that are alone, disabled or elderly and still live in their own homes, but depend on others for help. Pies On Wheels is an original Triton program! Would you believe that the traditional Thanksgiving dessert (pie) is not part of the Meals On Wheels holiday dinner? Join Mrs. Bolduc in the Triton cafeteria kitchen and become a pie connoisseur. Help bake holiday pies and put a smile on someone special. For those that are unable to get out and about, just the thought of someone caring means the world to them. You can make a difference in someone’s life! Community service credit awarded! Program meets Mondays, from 2:30 to 3:45, Oct. 16th through Nov. 20th, in the Triton Cafeteria.
Open to grades 7-12.
FEE: Community Service based programs do not require fees.

TRITON ATHLETICS & INCLEMENT WEATHER UPDATES
- UPDATE SEPTEMBER 19th
Our fields will be able to withstand a good amount of rain that is spread out over a short period of time. So, just because it is raining does not mean that there will be no practice. There is also an option to have some teams come indoors to practice when it provides them a benefit to do so and we have the space. We will keep everyone posted via the following avenues:
1) Twitter – @Triton_Vikings
2) The Triton athletics website – www.tritonschools.org/athlet
3) We will send out a broadcast email via the Athletics contact email list
4) Announcements will be made in both the Middle and High School office
5) Each coach will also reach out via their communications tools
In the case of rain, some of our high school teams will continue to practice on our brand new turf facility or be able to safety run outside. HOWEVER, in the case of thunder or lightning all of our outdoor teams that are practicing will be brought indoors for safety reasons. No team may return to the practice fields until 30 minutes after the last lightning sighting or sound of thunder. We will not hold any student-athlete past the end of their practice even if the practice is interrupted by a storm with these two events.
I hope that this will provide each of you with a high level of understanding of our process and I also would encourage anyone to contact me directly via email (firstname.lastname@example.org
