Hello 110 Families,

 

Happy Tuesday! We started an arts residency this week with Christian Adeti.  He is going to be working with the kids this week on West African drumming, dance and storytelling. We will be doing a short performance this Friday at 2:00 in the theater.  Each 2nd grade class will perform a piece they learned this week.  Feel free to join us if you are available.

 

 

We’ve been able to get reservations for 2nd grade to go to Native Pride Dancers at the Ordway on June 2nd at 10:00. This show is part of the Flint Hills International Children's Festival.  Unfortunately there aren't enough tickets available for chaperones. We were wondering if parents would be willing to meet us at 11:00 after the show to chaperone small groups so we can enjoy the festival activities afterwards.   If parents aren't available, we'll skip the festival and return back to school on the bus directly after the show.  (The festival is busy and chaperones are needed for safety!)  Thanks for considering!  Please let us know of your availability.  

 

Have a great week,

Rachel Herder and Alex Schluender
