Life Castings Move Toward Completion!
Mr. Moffatt is pleased to announce that we just closed our first play of the school year, The Wizard of Oz. A total of seven performances of this cherished childrens story took place over six days just before the Christmas Break. All the students of the district were given the opportunity to see the play. Pre-K thru grades 6 were treated to candy canes and a few lucky children walked away with a flying monkey!

Main Stage Three Act Play cast and in Rehearsals!
Set for Performance in April
Blithe Spirit concerns the socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, Madame Arcati, to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, after the séance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.
Welcome to the Art Room/Theater!
I'm Mr. Moffatt and I teach Middle and High School Visual Arts and Theater Arts. This is my third anniversary at Estancia! There are many exciting new opportunities this year. They include a new Art/Theater Club (Art, Ink.), A high school chapter of the National Art Honor Society, multiple guest artists and workshops coming in the Spring, a greatly expanded metals/jewelry medium, a new acting class, a new slumping/fusing glass medium, braized metal sculpture and more! I hope that this site will become a valuable resource for parents and students. I will work to keep it updated and containing everything you need to know about requirements, events and opportunities! Most importantly, this will allow us to effectively communicate with each other. Come back often because there are always exciting things happening in the Production Arts Building! It promises to be a fantastic year in the Arts at Estancia!
The first meeting of Art, Ink. will be on Monday, January 14th, 2019 during lunchtime. Officers will be elected at that time. Membership is open to all Estancia High School students. Participation in Club events is limited to students with a 2.0 or better GPA and no discipline referrals. Please come back to this page often for details of the group as it is formed and events are scheduled!
