I guess I say this every week but this is truly another busy one. Be sure to check out Kelly's part of the newsletter and the calendar for more information.
This week we have all of the elementary students off campus for holiday performances and at the Glenridge Performing Arts Theatre in the evenings. The kindergarten, first, and second graders should wear their costumes to school Monday morning. (Bring a change of clothes in the bags given to them last week.) They will be performing for residents of Heron's East, Beneva Lakes, and Sunshine Meadows. It will be a busy morning for them but they provide so much enjoyment to the residents. The same evening they will perform for our SAA family at the Glenridge Performing Arts Theatre. The cost for adults is $5.00 which helps us cover the rental cost of the theater. Kindergarten students should arrive in costume at 5:30 with a 6:00 showtime. The first and second graders will perform at 7:15 and should arrive by 6:45.
The third, fourth, and fifth graders have their performances on Thursday, Dec. 8. They should come to school in costumes to leave at 9:00 for performances at The Cottages in Bradenton and Heartland. (Be sure we have the notarized out-of-county travel forms for your child.) Thursday evening the third and fourth graders should arrive at Glenridge by 5:30 to perform at 6:00. The fifth graders will perform at 7:30 and should arrive no later than 7:00.
The Middle School Advanced Chorus will perform at Desoto Beach Club and Hawthorne Village on Friday, 12/9. Advanced Chorus will travel Saturday to Disney to perform over the weekend. Yesterday the Advanced Chorus had two events at which they performed outstandingly. Girls Chorus and Mixed Chorus will perform Monday, 12/12, during the morning. All middle school groups will perform at Glenridge Monday evening.
Don't forget "The Gingerbread House," our first holiday shopping event for all students this Tuesday and Wednesday. We still need volunteers to help with this. We want to continue doiing things for our students but must have volunteers to assist the organizers so if you can give an hour, it would be much appreciated.
The December Governing Board meeting will be next Monday, Dec. 12 at 8:00 AM in the administrative building. The regular Board meeting will be followed by a planning meeting.
Have a lovely week. Look for progress reports on the parent portal for middle schoolers.
