Dear Parents and Students,
Due to several conflicts, the rehearsal scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 11th, has been cancelled.
All the other rehearsals for the week are not affected by this cancellation.
On another note: if you can spare some time during school hours this week, Tuesday AM (not PM) through Friday, we would really appreciate an inventory of costume pieces we have and props that we can use for our production of OZ. We will be adding new pieces, of course, but we have many costume pieces that will be useful in this show.
If you can spare some time during school hours to come in and count costume pieces and props we have for our cast, it would be most appreciated. Please email me or call me. Tuesday through Friday are available except for Tuesday afternoon when there is a program in the multi-purpose room. Thank you!
Costumes: We need a Cowardly Lion costume. Does your Halloween collection have one or do you know someone who has a lovable lion costume we could borrow? Or are you a seamstress with an Oscar-big desire to put your costuming skills to good use and would love to sew a costume for our lion, please contact me asap.
Signup Genius: if you have some time and could help us put together a signup genius for chairpersons and volunteers, please let me know. We would like to have everything ready for Feb. 19th.
Thank you for all of your support and cooperation. The students are doing a great job and the show is coming together very nicely.
God bless you,
Terri Kober and Melissa Flasck
Good Afternoon, Parents and Students!
Here is where we stand for rehearsal tomorrow and almost every time Mother Nature decides to interfere with our schedule. We will not go back and recoup those days immediately. We will pick up the schedule where we are; therefore, we will follow the Friday, Jan. 24th, schedule.
Tomorrow we will follow Friday’s schedule. This includes Hazel, Robin, Marian, Mother Mary and all the sisters listed or added to the cast list posted outside my classroom, Little John, Sayra, Friar Tuck, Sam, Ellen, and Helen.
The scenes and pages scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday will be picked up later next week and the week following.
1) Thank you to all the parents who let me know of your student’s schedules and conflicts. I try to keep the kids in mind, but we have lots of conflicts and many pages to block and songs to learn. I apologize if your son or daughter is scheduled on a day with a conflict.
If your son or daughter cannot attend rehearsal, even if you informed me beforehand of a regularly scheduled conflict, it is very helpful if you could please tell me asap if possible—even the day of. Despite all good intentions, I may not have remembered, and it helps with adjusting the rehearsal schedule to best use the students who are there.
When a student just leaves on a day when he or she is scheduled and does not tell me personally or via email, it leaves me and the cast in a bind. Thank you for your consideration.
2) All the rehearsals begin after dismissal and end at 6:00 P.M. Sometime in early March, we will extend the time. But for now, we will end rehearsals at 6:00 P.M.
3) Our rehearsals are a NO PHONE ZONE. The students will not be permitted to use their phones during rehearsals. If they need to contact you or receive a confirmation about transportation, they will need to contact Mrs. Flasck or myself for permission to use their phone between dismissal and 3:45 to check their phones for texts or updates if needed. We have much to do and the phones are a big distraction. If you need to talk with them sooner, please let your son or daughter know a time frame.
If your son or daughter is not needed on stage, they will have time to complete homework, catch up on their reading for lit, or study for up-coming tests. We feel that this is a positive way to use the time available during rehearsal to accomplish some work or help with the show or run lines.
4) Next week information will be coming home about various committees that will need your help to costume the cast, design scenery and backdrop, and monitoring during the rehearsals. Thank you to those of you who have already spoken up to assist with this show.
5) Although the costumes are the responsibility of the student and family, we do try to design costumes and costume components so that it is doable and/or get the help you need to get the costume made or pulled together. The costume requirements will be sent out on Monday, Feb. 4. We will need parents to help organize the costumes and costume pieces for the various ensembles (chorus groups) and our principles. You do not need to sew but organizing a group and being a contact person with an ensemble is very helpful. Your students will be given their ensemble roles and assignments on Tuesday, Jan. 29th, at the full cast rehearsal.
THANK YOU FOR SENDING YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER TO REHEARSAL WITH A GOOD SNACK(S)! IT RESTORES THEM AND PROVIDES THE ENERGY THEY NEED!
Finally, the students have really embraced the show and have done a remarkable job already learning some of the songs. Rockin’ Robin Hood is a very dynamic and lively show, but they are very talented and will be ready!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support and cooperation in producing this show and in providing the students with this opportunity to grow, make new friends, build confidence, and make lasting skills and memories that we hope will serve them well in high school and beyond. Keep us in your prayers. Thank you for all you do!
May God hold you and your families in the palm of His hand.
Terri Kober and Melissa Flasck
