Fall Walk to School Day - Wednesday, October 17 7:45 a.m. - Sinkwich Spartan Center
Walk to School Days are a fun way to enjoy a stroll through campus and visit with friends. We hope you'll join us by 7:45 a.m. at the Sinkwich Spartan Center--strollers, pups, and the whole family are welcome! Please note that we do ask that parents walk with their student(s) all the way to their division(s). Normal morning car line drop-offs will be available as usual for all children and families who are not able to participate. We hope you will join us if you are able!
October 18-20 - 7:30 p.m. - Bertelsmann Presentation Hall
Benefit performance: October 25, 2018 - 7:30 p.m. - Bertelsmann Presentation Hall
Everyone is sure to enjoy this comedic script, written by our very own Lorraine Thompson, with its fast-paced, outrageous antics and clear, exaggerated characters. Nobody will be able to resist the loveable (and cheeky) Arlecchino and his companions as they take us to the city of love itself --Venice--where plots are laid, mayhem ensues, and all is well in the end! Tickets are $2/students and $5/adults. The October 25 performance will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We hope you will join us!
As part of our family-school partnership, we want to engage in relevant learning opportunities for our community, with events like the screening of Angst last month and the upcoming visit from former prosecutor J. Tom Morgan (October 16). In order to continue offering relevant and interesting community-centered events, we ask that you please take two minutes to fill out this survey.
