Postville High School to Conduct Mock Crash

Postville High School to Conduct Mock Crash with Postville High School Students

Postville High School doesn’t want the class of 2016 going out in a crash; therefore, the high school is sponsoring a mock car crash on Wednesday, April 20, 2016.  The mock crash aims to send a hard-hitting reminder of the dangers and consequences of unsafe driving behaviors—such as drinking and/or texting and driving and not buckling up—prior to prom and the end of the school year.

Following the mock crash exercise, students will meet for a brief assembly to educate students about the hazards of impaired and distracted driving and its impact on schools, families and their communities.

Junior High Play: “I Don’t Have a Clue!” by Craig Sodaro

Postville Junior High School proudly presents

“I Don’t Have a Clue!”

by Craig Sodaro

“When Carol Robinson throws a laugh-packed murder-mystery dinner party for six friends, hires a moody maid to dish up the three-course meal, and refuses to let guests enter without fishnet tights and fedoras, no one is surprised to find a stranger hiding in the window box or two cops casing the joint—except their hostess. Somewhere between the Capone caviar and the Ma Barker biscuits, the guests start unraveling Carol’s hysterical 1929 “whodunit” and find a wad of cash stuffed in a trash can. While Carol’s friends are having the crime of their lives, Carol is baffled. The stranger is a stranger, the cops are strangers, and strange enough, Carol has no clue who stashed the cash in the trash and asks, “Is it real?” With a little help from Carol’s youngest daughter, Corky, Carol’s plot thickens. Corky (and friends) found $75,000 in the park, hid it in the house, and are now being followed by a couple of gangsters, who are being followed by a couple of salesmen, who are being followed by a couple of cops. Before long, Corky and friends find themselves in a heap of trouble when the gangsters demand their cash back and Corky can’t find it (the dinner guests are using it for dessert napkins). What started with dinner and a murder-mystery among friends, ends in hilarious havoc and heart-pounding fun!”

The play will be held in the Fine Arts Center on

February 27th at 7:00pm
