110 Stories Tickets on Sale Now

Performance Dates:

May 26, 27, and 28 
All performances begin at 7:00 p.m. and are in the 
HS Auditorium.

 

From the first crash at the Towers to a last goodbye at Ground Zero, 110 Stories takes us through 9/11 as told by those who were there. Based on interviews, this docu-play weaves together stories not shown on the news, from people we can relate to...a mother, a photojournalist, an ironworker, a chiropractor, and a homeless man who saved lives that day. Their unflinching, freaked-out and occasionally funny accounts take us back to when 9/11 was unimaginable, capturing the shock and horror of the day as well as the resilience of New York City in its aftermath.

Visit http://www.ottawahillsschools.org/Content/20 for instructions on how to purchase tickets. Please note that all tickets should have a bar code. Please print your tickets in advance of the performance. In addition, the Box Office will be open for ticket sales one hour before each show.

Cleveland Plain Dealer Ranks Ottawa Hills #1

Ottawa Hills LogoThe Cleveland Dealer Plain Dealer gives Ottawa Hills the highest ranking in the state through a formula that creates a Grade Point Average for each of the state’s school districts.

“The Plain Dealer calculated the GPAs by using the ‘component’ grades the Ohio Department of Education reported for each of six areas deemed of special interest by the state. The component grades consider things like overall student achievement, how well districts do in helping lower-performing students improve and graduation rates.” 

The Plain Dealer notes, “Ottawa Hills, outside Toledo, is the only perfect 4.0 district in the state, by our calculations. Solon checks in at No. 2 with a 3.8 GPA. Only 23 of 608 districts got a 3.0 or better.”
