5th Grade Musical  – March 7 and 8 at 7pm
You won’t want to miss the hair-raising adventures in “A Monsterous Tale,” a production written and directed by Lester Betor. When Francesca Stein and her family relocate to “Witchita”, she senses that something is amiss at The Mount Draculan Middle School. With her new freakish friends and educators hinting at the fiendish ways of the school benefactor, Francesca realizes that Count Dracula must go. Join us for an evening of laughter and adventure.

Tickets are available for $3 at the door.

Girls on the Run – we still have room!
Girls on the Run® inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. Over the course of 10 weeks, the curriculum-based program uses running as a way to help girls in 3rd to 5th grade learn more about who they are and what’s important to them, the value of teamwork and social relationships, and understanding their connection with the world at large through community service. The season culminates with the team completing a 5K event, giving them a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment. We are all about girl empowerment; this is not a track prep program.  For more information and to sign up now click here

29th Annual NYSATA Legislative Student Exhibit
The New York State Art Teachers Association in partnership with NYSUT and in collaboration with our New York State Legislators organizes this exhibit to showcase the art programs in the schools. The exhibit also provides an opportunity for young artists to meet their state representatives and to talk about their work and their inspirations. This event is the culmination of celebration of Youth Art Month. Your child’s art work will be on display from February 25, 2019 through March 7, 2019 at the Legislative Building The Well, Empire State Plaza. A reception will be held on March 6, 2019 from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Families are responsible for their own transportation to the event.

Congratulations to Ella Raphael and Jack Rulison, who have been selected from Slingerlands to showcase their art!

Have a wonderful weekend!
