“Sound of Music” SET BUILDING DAY

Cast Parents: we will be having another 5 hour workday on the set of “The Sound of Music” THIS SATURDAY, Oct 24th, from either 9:00 - 2:00 or 10:00 - 3:00. You must work a complete 5 hours to receive credit toward your volunteer hours. High School students that come out to work will receive House Points. There is a lot that still needs to be done in order to raise the walls of our stage and we need YOUR help!  At the same time that parents will be working on the set,  rehearsal will also be going on in the Great Room. Thank you in advance for helping us get the set ready for “TheSound of Music”.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Rodgers at [email protected]




On Monday, October 26th, our Salt & Light secondary chapel speaker will be Holly Hudelson, Director of Public Relations and Co-Founder of Unlock Freedom, a Human Trafficking Awareness Initiative formed to teach teens and parents about internet safety and the growing risks facing our teens. This is a highly sensitive and even frightening topic, but in this age, awareness is critical. We want to partner with you to make sure the information is presented to your child in a safe and controlled manner.  We would ask that you read the parent letter attached below and view the videos listed below. After viewing, please consider sharing them with your child. These are a great dramatic presentation of the issues we will discuss in a Q & A format during chapel. Mr. John Ahrens moderates the discussions in our Salt & Light chapels and will be allowing for candid questions from the students in the last 15 minutes of our chapel time. Please know that you are always welcome to join us during our Monday morning chapel time. Salt & Light chapels begin at 9:10 and run until 10:10. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Ahrens by e-mail at [email protected]  or through Gradenet. You may also call the office and schedule an appointment to discuss any concerns you may have. We will run this message twice prior to October 26th to give you time to view the material and share it with your students. Thank you.
