I'm excited about a lot of events happening this month at Noblesville Schools.

Our calendar is filling up quickly with activities, from school plays and performing arts department concerts to fundraisers, the Miller Shift Learning Showcase, parent-information night, and the superintendent's annual State of the Schools address.

Let's start with Noblesville High School drama department, which on Wednesday kicked off its spring play, "The Miracle Worker." The play is the story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, the teacher who unlocked Keller's dark world, and continues at 7 p.m. today through Saturday at NHS. Tickets are $8 at the door.

Tonight, the Noblesville Elementary MusicFest is at 6:30 p.m. at Noblesville West Middle School. It features ensembles from each of the seven elementaries, including North Elementary's fourth-grade hand-chimes players, Hazel Dell Orff Ensemble, and choirs from Stony Creek, Hinkle Creek, Noble Crossing, Promise Road and White River elementaries. Admission is free.

On Friday, teachers and principals will trade their business attire for shorts and T-shirts to play in the fifth-annual "Serve It Up" inter-elementary staff volleyball tournament. Games start at 4:30 p.m. at NHS. Admission is $2, with proceeds to the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville. Between volleyball games, audiences can enjoy performances by White River, Stony Creek and North Elementary, including my daughter, who is representing North and singing one of her favorite Top 40 songs, at about 6 p.m.; along with Hazel Dell Folk Dancers, Grinders Cheerleaders, World Class Tae Kwon Do, and Hinkle Harmonics playing the National Anthem right before the Final Four Tournament, which starts at about 7:30 p.m.

On Monday, NHS choral groups will present their free Spring Choir concert at 7 p.m. at NHS.

On Tuesday, a Teen Social Media Night advises how to keep your kids safe at 6 p.m. at NHS, presented in partnership with Noblesville Police Department.

On Thursday, March 16, the free Miller Shift Learning '17 Showcase, from 6 to 8 p.m. at NHS, shows off collaborative, real-world learning accomplishments through more than 70 interactive displays, operated by teachers and students throughout the district, from all grade levels. Displays include: aeronautics, business, computer coding, cooking, engineering, innovations, manufacturing, media, photography, robotics, and more. Innovative teachers will be honored at a 5:30 p.m. awards ceremony.

On Tuesday, March 21, NHS Orchestra will preview its upcoming Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) competition with a free concert at 7 p.m. at NHS.

On Wednesday, March 22, Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer will present the State of the Schools address at 11:30 a.m. during a Noblesville Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Purgatory Golf Club (register at www.NoblesvilleChamber.org. Niedermeyer will also play host during her monthly Table Talk at 6:30 p.m. today at Noble Coffee & Tea.

Whew....Thank goodness our two-week spring break begins on March 27.
