Mr. Joseph Skillings' 2nd-3rd grade class at Adams Elementary School, 6110 28th Ave in the Ballard neighborhood, is presenting two performances of an adaptation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," tonight and tomorrow afternoon. The children hope Mr. Skillings will feel up to attending. He is currently doing well at home after a long hospitalization. He is recuperating from a brain injury he suffered when he was punched and knocked to the ground while attempting to call 911 for a woman who was being harassed at a Capitol Hill bus stop. Mr. Skillings has been on the Adams faculty for 15 years and is much beloved and admired. The Adams community wishes to support this dedicated educator in all the ways it can, and the public is warmly invited to help as well.
