Husky Hits - Sept 11 2016

Featured Article

As we embark on this new school year, we have a new theme - "Who Am I? Who Are We?" As we delve into this question using every aspect of our curriculum,we invite you to bring this question home. At the dinner table or on the drive to school, you can use this question to open up a range of discussions. Even grown ups might be able to dredge up something useful from this question! 

Announcements

Sleeping Beauty Auditions

September 14 + 16, 3:30-5pm in St James' Hall

This fall John Staley is directing us into 18th century France and the enchanted world of Sleeping Beauty. The music is adapted from the original Tchaikovsky piece and whisks the audience into a remarkable and timeless story made famous by the Disney movie. There is a reason great stories get told for generations and this is the chance for your student to tell the story anew. 

Open to all grades, all auditioners are guaranteed a role.
