School is in session in McHenry County. And this also means that McHenry County schools, and homeschools, are planning field trips for their students. The Woodstock Fine Arts Association invites students in grades 3 to 5 to experience Novel Ideas. This nationally-known improvisational troupe works with students to act out their creative writings on stage of the Woodstock Opera House. An entertaining and inspiring event, groups of students from area schools (including home schools) are invited to attend the annual Fall Children's Program. There are two performances scheduled on Tuesday, October 17: the morning program at 9:30 a.m. while the afternoon program begins at 12:30 p.m. Each performance is 50 minutes in length.
