Hello everyone! It’s hard to believe that we’re already starting Week 3, even after the little health snafu of Week 2!
Please remember that I will be converting to posting all weekly updates on our blog. Please subscribe if you haven’t already, and you will receive email notifications when new posts are made! https://www.slsummerenrichment.org/blog
Please note that this newsletter is separated into the following categories:
Theme Thursdays (Elementary)
Thank you very much!
Scripts are now going live! Mid-High will have their scripts uploaded to the Drive by 9PM tonight (7/11) and Elementary by 9PM tomorrow (7/12).
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 two. Please keep in mind that Middle School 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 to download when the time comes, please feel free to email me and I will direct you to the correct shows.
You can access the folder via this link.
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!
Our Car Wash is taking place this Friday, July 15th, 10:00-1:00 in the Dairy Queen parking lot. If your student is an 8th or 9th grader, they will be invited to volunteer to work with staff that day. Permission slips were passed out today!
I am also including the flyer. Feel free to post to social media and share with family and friends!
Our Aubree’s fundraiser will take place on Wednesday, July 27th, 5:00-8:00. The event applies to the $15 buffet only. The buffet includes pizza, breadsticks, salads, and drinks. For every $15 buffet meal purchased, $5 will be donated directly to Summer Enrichment.
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 will share the official flyer when it is sent to us by management.
Elementary’s Current Points: - $19.62
Mid-High’s Current Points: - $12.25
Mid-High is currently in the lead!
The final day of the Penny Drive will be Tuesday, 7/26.
The winning team will receive their prize on Thursday, 7/28!
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). Please let us know if you’d be interested in lending a hand in this task.
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!
