Chalkboard Capers

  • We have the great honor of bringing back the 36th Annual Chalkboard Capers Show this year! The shows will be presented on March 29-31 & April 1, 2023.

    Chalkboard Capers is an annual musical variety show written, produced, and performed by members of the Mounds View Education Association. Through this program, we are able to grant scholarships to graduating seniors from Irondale High School, Mounds View High School, REACH Academy, Area Learning Center, and Adult Basic Education. Each scholarship is $621. The number of scholarships awarded depends on the financial success of the show.
