Throughout the school year, La Joya hosts multiple events that students are able to socialize within. Whether it be in the PAC or just outside in the student parking lot, the events bring students some much needed socialization time with their friends and new people.

One of the upcoming events is a play directed by Ms. Ludlow, La Joya’s drama teacher. The play is called A Chance. It will take place September 15, 16 and 17th inside the PAC. It is important to remember to wear a mask when attending these events for the safety of not only yourself but others as well. COVID still exists and in order to lessen the spread, masks are encouraged.

“…If it’ll help us slow down COVID, it’s an easy thing that all of us can do. ” Said Ms. Ludlow.
