High School Youth Sunday School Crash & Burn

Last week only one boy showed up for our high school class. The others were around church, but were off doing other things.
This has been steadily getting worse and worse every week. I can't think what we're doing wrong. We have a skilled teacher,
someone who spent 11 years teaching high school (and he's still interested in it enough to volunteer!!!). We are using a good
curriculum from Augsburg Fortress, topic based, called YouthTalk. The kids say it's boring, but it's really the best one...at least
that's what I thought. We are a fairly large church, yet we have only one pastor, and an intern from Seminary. We don't have a
full-time youth minister as many churches our size have. We are in the middle of a building project, and the best room I could
get for the high school is shared with the three-year-old preschool (we have a Lutheran day school). Obviously on Sunday morning,
there are no 3-year olds in the room with them, but they have to sit on itty bitty chairs. Once our new facility comes on line
they will have space of their own.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions for us to try? At this point, we're willing to try just about anything. And we have about
9 weeks to go.
