SCRIPTS

Scripts will be live to download and print here on Tuesday, July 11th (both Elementary and Mid-High). Estimated posting time will be around 11:59PM, so please be sure to print them in the morning before your session!

Due to our limited access to facility equipment such as printers and copiers, this year we will be administering all scripts via Google Docs. Please have your students print these at home and bring them in every day to practice! If you have any difficulties opening the documents or do not have access to a printer, please let us know and we will be more than happy to provide further guidance.

Scripts will be separated into two folders: one for Elementary, and one for Mid-High. Elementary students will be responsible for one script each, and Mid-High students will each have three. Please keep in mind that volunteers should also print a copy of the script for the Elementary classroom they are a part of. They may have a small role in the show or need a script to help others practice lines.

If you are unsure of which scripts your child(ren) need(s) to download when the time comes, please feel free to email me and I will direct you to the correct shows.

We are also planning to upload lyrics for music and sign language to these folders.

As of now, we plan to have scripts available to download and print late Tuesday evening (close to midnight.) If not by then, almost certainly in the early AM hours.


FUNDRAISERS

We are a nonprofit organization, which means all profits go directly back into the program to fund our activities from one summer to the next. Your participation is important and appreciated!



Car Wash We raised $427 for the Program at our car wash last week! Thank you so much!




Aubree’s


Our Aubree’s fundraiser will take place on Tuesday, July 18th, 11:00AM-10:00PM.


The format has changed! You can now order anything on the menu and have 20% of your bill donated directly to Summer Enrichment as long as you bring a paper copy of the red and white Dine to Donate Flyer.


The management and wait staff at the restaurant require families to provide at least one paper copy of the flyer per bill to assist them in record-keeping. I am attaching the official restaurant flyer.


Please note that we are not allowed to pass out flyers at the restaurant, so be sure to share with family and friends in advance!






Penny Drive


Current Standings:

Elementary: - $1.32 (Leading)

Mid-High: - $22.25


The final day of the Penny Drive will be Tuesday, 7/25. The winning team will receive their prize on Thursday, 7/27!


For those who need a refresher, the Penny Drive works as follows:


We will have one collection for Elementary, and one collection for Mid-High. Donated pennies will be counted as "positive" points towards the session in which they are enrolled. However, any silver (nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, etc.) or cash can be used to put into the opposing session's collection to make their points NEGATIVE!

For example, if 2nd grader Bobby brings in 50 pennies for his Elementary collection, but 7th grader Molly brings in two quarters (50 cents) to put into the Elementary collection, the Elementary points go back to "0". This is a fun and competitive way to raise money that goes right back into the program. The winning team will win a prize at the end of the summer, the plans for which are still underway!





Tricky Tray


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 begin sending your students with these items at any time! We will collect through the final week.

We will be searching for parents to help with asking for donations from local businesses (most businesses have worked with us in the past and look forward to participating) and selling tickets before and after the performances. Please let us know if you’d be interested in lending a hand in this task.





THEME THURSDAYS

ELEMENTARY SESSION ONLY

Thursday, June 29th: Class Color Day


Thursday, July 6th: Pajama (and possibly movie) Day


Thursday, July 13th: Favorite Fictional Character Day


Thursday, July 20th: Crazy Hair/Hat Day


Thursday, July 27th: Dapper Day





IMPORTANT NOTES


  • Please remind your students to adhere to standard school dress code. We also ask that all students wear close-toed shoes. We will be having games and activities that involve extensive movement (cardio and dance, for example), and close-toed shoes are the safest option to avoid any potential injuries.


  • Please also note that it is important to let your student’s teachers know about scheduled absences. If they need to miss some time due to illness or emergency, this is no problem! (And there is no need to “call them in” absent in these cases.) But if they will be absent for an extended period of time for camp, vacation, etc., having advance notice helps our staff prepare activities accordingly. If you included these dates in your registration already, I have those records and you do not need to inform us again.


  • If you would like to volunteer in any way, please let us know! We are asking for parents to help visit businesses in the South Lyon area, and sell Tricky Tray tickets on performance nights. We would love and appreciate any help you are able to provide, and your dedication contributes to the longevity of our program!


  • If you know of any additional fundraising opportunities, please let us know!

Missing bag

Hi parents of middle school students! Please ask your kids if anyone saw Evan's beige bag on Wednesday. It has his costumes in it and he cannot find it. Thank you!
