Week 6 - 2021



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!

  • We will also be introducing a new game on performance nights for fundraising purposes! We hope you will join in!

  • 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 Mid-High! As their reward, they get to throw water balloons at staff at the end of their session on Monday!

ELEMENTARY DRESS REHEARSAL AND PERFORMANCE

Thursday, August 5th (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 Millennium Middle School Cafetorium (7th/8th grade wing) at 7:00PM. Admission is free! Invite family and friends.

MID-HIGH DRESS REHEARSAL AND PERFORMANCE

Friday, August 6th

  • There is no program for Middle School on Thursday, August 5th. 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 6th, 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 (“iCarly” and “Goosebumps”): Band Room

  • Group B (“Drake and Josh” and “Victorious”): Choir Room

  • Group C (“Zoey 101” and “Back in Avatar”): Choir 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.

  • Performance will begin in the Millennium Middle School Cafetorium (7th/8th grade wing) at 7:00PM. Admission is free! Invite family and friends.

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!


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.
