Second Order for Mermaid Shirts!

This is a “last call” for anyone who would like to get a show shirt from our spring production of The Little Mermaid.  In order to have a second printing of shirts, we do need to meet some quantity minimum requirements, and we don’t have enough yet!

You can choose the style of shirt – short sleeve T, long sleeves, baseball style, crew neck or hoodie sweatshirt.  You also get to choose the color – blue or white (baseball shirts are white in the middle with blue sleeves).  If you want any type of personalization on the back – there is an additional $3 fee – and it needs to fit on one line (approx 12-15 characters maximum).

Use this order form and submit it – with payment- to Mrs. Mintzer by Monday, April 10th. Mermaid-2017ShirtOrderForm

Message from our Meal Organizer

Feeding Your Teens This Week!

We are looking forward to keeping the actors, musicians, tech and crew all nourished and ready to do their best in the next few weeks!  Please take a look at the SignUp Genius and know that we need EVERYONE to help out!  Find an item or two that we are in need of, and sign up!

You can bring it a night or two ahead of time if that is more convenient for you! Do not hesitate because you cannot make it from scratch!  We are a judgment free zone! Stouffer’s makes the best Mac & Cheese for $12.99 in the party pack!  If you cannot possible donate a food item, please feel obliged to give your child some cash to pass along to Mrs. Mintzer – it is very expensive to feed almost 100 students and staff each night!

There will be a large wagon right inside the door under the overpass for your donations either close to 3:00 or up until 9:00 pm when rehearsal ends.  Please put your items in the cooler bag and I’ll bring it home and heat it up for the next day or two!

Pizza on Monday, Taco Tuesday, Mac & Cheese on Wednesday, and Thursday is Soup Night. Friday will be for leftovers.  There will always be PB&J and salad available each night as alternate choices. We will also provide a meal on Saturday between the  matinee and evening performances – and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of the following week.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Lyn Patterson at 951-2788.

Please visit this site to see how your help is needed during these next two weeks – or donations that are also needed:

We are providing meals for the cast/crew/pit members who are needed to prepare for our dress rehearsals each evening – that’s about 85-90 people… and there are TEN nights of meals!  If your son/daughter will be dining at the school, we’re counting on you to provide some of the needed items.

We also need help in the lobby on show nights – high school students in NHS/Serteen who are interested in helping may also sign up here.   Parents are reminded that they must have district volunteer clearances on file in order to serve on site.

Students are reminded to bring a water bottle to use during the meals. Ice water will be provided – but we want to “go green” and not provide disposable cups each evening.
