Final Week!

Updated: Mar 6

Hello, everyone! It’s so hard to believe we are already in our final week. This summer has flown by. Thank you for making it such a success!


A few last-minute notes and reminders, and details about this week’s schedule:


  • Our annual Tricky Tray fundraiser will take place on performance nights. We collect various donated items between $5 and $10 from families to raffle at the end of each performance night. You can continue to bring items throughout the week!

  • Please continue to have your student work on lines. The more they practice, the more confident they will feel on stage!

  • The official winner of the Penny Wars was Elementary! As their reward, they got to choose some wacky outfits for staff to wear all day!

Elementary Dress Rehearsal & Performance

Thursday, August 1st


  • Elementary students will participate in a dress rehearsal during their normal session hours on Thursday, 10:00-12:00. Please bring them already in costume. They can report directly to their classrooms.

  • Elementary students and classroom volunteers should report back to the school and their classrooms at 6:40 to prepare for their shows. Again, they should arrive in costume.

  • Performance will begin in the SLHS auditorium at 7:00PM. Admission is free! Invite family and friends.  

Mid-High Dress Rehearsal and Performance

Friday, August 2nd


  • There is no program for Middle School on Thursday, August 1st. That day is dedicated to our Elementary performance. You and your student(s) are more than welcome to come watch the elementary kids perform at 7:00PM!

  • Students will have a dress rehearsal the morning of August 2nd, from 9:30AM-1:00PM. Please have them arrive in their first costume and ready to roll. They should report to their “group spaces” or “holding tanks” when they arrive. These meeting places are as follows:

  3. Ultraviolet Bandicoots (“Finding Bigfoot” and “First Dates”): Boy’s Dressing Room

  • Lunch must be packed. Students will not be allowed to leave campus or order in for lunch that day, as it will be a “working” lunch. 

  • Students should report back to the school at 6:30 to prepare for their performance. Once more, they should report to their group space.

  • The performance begins at 7:00PM in the SLHS auditorium. Admission is free. Please bring your family and friends to join the fun!
