In the 19th century before radio and television, the tableau vivant became an artistic way to illustrate historical or popular events using a group of costumed people arranged in a still pose creating a "living picture." Overbrook School's history of the Advent tableau dates back to the school's beginnings in the mid-1930s and continues this week.
Overbrook junior high students are stepping out into the community for the fourth time this semester for a service event raising awareness for adoption. Already this semester, sixth through eighth-graders have fed the needy in downtown Nashville twice and took residents of Safe Haven on a field trip.
Twenty-four Overbrook seventh-graders met required scores in selected subject areas on their standardized/achievement test to qualify to participate in the Duke University Talent Identification Program for 2012. The number ties a school record for the most students in a class to qualify for the program.
Overbrook's after school program now involves 165 students.
