The cast of "Homework Eats Dog and Other Woeful Tales" are recognized and thanked by Communication Arts and Social Studies teacher Kendra Looten.

The play, written by Alan Haehnel, was a delightful story of students asking their professor, Mr. Kobekeaneski, for an extension on their project due on Friday the 13th. The professor took great pride in not granting extensions over his 23 year career for any reason. The cast of characters made the young and the young at heart bellow in laughter as the students filed into the office with various reasons for an extension.
