Dog Toy Drive

Did you know that dogs love toys just as much as kids do?! Well, we have some dogs who need our help! Companion Pet Rescue rescues dogs from Tennessee, and some of the dogs are in need of toys. Student Council is sponsoring a dog toy drive to gather toys for the pups. The dogs will appreciate any new or gently used toys. Please drop off any donations in the lobby or to Ms. Bivona. Thank you for helping out the rescue pups!

Reminder: Extended Concert Choir

The permission forms for concert choir were due today, but will be extended until the end of the week! Please get your permission forms in so you can sing some very cool songs with your friends each Thursday after school! You never know, you can be the next contestant on the "The Voice" someday!!! 

 

Any questions, ask Mrs. Tenenbaum

Each student will be assigned a date for his/her audition and will receive a notice during the
week of Dec. 4th. Students need to be available on the date that they are assigned, as it is
very difficult to change audition times.

● All students must prepare to sing a song (of their choosing) for one minute (without music)
in front of the audition committee. No instruments or personal CDs allowed.

● Callbacks for leading roles will take place Dec. 19 th and 20 th from 4:00 pm- 5:30 pm .
If a student gets a callback, they will be notified individually by email and must be available
on both dates. It is very important that you provide us with a working email for this purpose.
However, if a student is not called back, they may still be cast in the show.
