The time has come for the faculty to decide the manner in which they will kick off their new Performing Arts Department, so Principal Steven Merriweather calls Emily and her creative team to his office to hash out the plan for the Gala.

Having recently acquired some national fame, Emily Jordan has been chosen to helm the brand new performing arts program at West Covina Central Middle School. But as difficult as it is to say goodbye to her beloved Lone Cactus students and faculty in Temecula, it is most certainly going to be much harder, perhaps even devastatingly so, on the ones that she is leaving behind. Principal Julius Phillipa nearly tears up each time he thinks about living only with the memory of his rising-star drama teacher, but deep down he knows it's all for the best. And thus, the Emily Jordan era at West Covina Central Middle begins.
