Susquehanna Community High School will be hosting its 14th Annual Mocha Moose Café on May 21, 2019, from 5:30 - 8:30pm in the high school gym. All are invited to join the students as they show off their talents and accomplishments. Tickets are available at the door, $3 for adults and $2 for students.
14 years ago the Mocha Moose Café started when the Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) wanted to showcase the talented students of SCHS with an evening program featuring a wide variety of acts that included a few teachers as well. The program had its beginnings in the main cafeteria with a quaint coffee house style setting of dim lights and a small stage for acts. The night of entertainment was so well received that after two short years it was moved to the gym to accommodate the crowd.
This year the SCSD Archery Club and Saber Studio Art Club will be hosting the event. The night will include finger food, desserts and drinks, basket raffle, great musical, dance and dramatic performances.
