SEP Week 6 - 2023

Hello, Enrichment families!



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!


This newsletter is separated into the following categories:

Thank you!

COSTUMES


You should have gotten a small note home last week from your student’s directors regarding the costumes for their shows! If they have not gotten their items approved by staff yet, please bring them in on Monday.


The only other segment they will need costumes for is Dance!


Elementary: Lilac Summer Enrichment t-shirts handed out this year and whatever bottoms are comfortable to dance in. Please also have them wear tennis shoes or safe close-toed shoes.


Mid-High: Variety of Summer Enrichment shirts from any year! The more colors, the better. Please choose a solid color of pants/skirts and safe/comfortable shoes to dance in. They can also accessorize with jackets!

PERFORMANCE PLAYBILLS

In order to save on paper waste this year, we have chosen not to print out paper playbills/programs of cast lists. Instead, we have created digital playbills that will be accessible via QR code.


In order to do this, you just need to scan the barcode with the camera on your smart device to open the file. That’s it! There will be multiple flyers with this code throughout the performance area on Thursday and Friday.


If you need any help, please don’t hesitate to ask.








PENNY DRIVE WINNERS


Elementary won the Penny Drive! We will be celebrating their victory on Tuesday by randomly choosing students to dump buckets of water on staff.


ELEMENTARY DRESS REHEARSAL AND PERFORMANCE


Thursday, August 3rd (Reminder: Mid-High does not meet this day)

  • 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 South Lyon High School Auditorium at 7:00PM. You can park in the main parking lot where you have been dropping off all summer. Admission is free! Invite family and friends.

MID-HIGH DRESS REHEARSAL AND PERFORMANCE


Friday, August 4th

  • There is no program for Middle School on Thursday, August 3rd. 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 4th, 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:


  • Group A (Pasta, Mermaid, Musical): Boys’ Dressing Room

  • Group B (Wonka, Heroes, Seinfeld): Dressing Room Foyer

  • Group C (Fairytales, Genres, Mona Lisa): Girls’ Dressing Room

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

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

  • Performance will begin in the South Lyon High School Auditorium at 7:00PM. You can park in the main parking lot where you have been dropping off all summer. Admission is free! Invite family and friends.



DROP OFF AND PICK UP


We ask you to please be mindful of our start/end times. Staff has responsibilities to attend to both before and after each session, including second jobs they must report to right at 4:00PM.


That said, we understand that it can be difficult to juggle overlapping schedules. If you have a standing conflict, please let us know so we can try to work something out that does not impede anyone else’s existing obligations.



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!


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.

We will continue to allow advance ticket sales in cash this week! Please let your students know that they may purchase tickets before and after their sessions. Prices are as follows:


· $0.50 per single ticket

· $10 per 25 ticket bundle


Remember, we will accept new prizes all week!

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!
