Our K-5 Happy Camper Reading Contest begins TODAY after school and runs through Sunday, April 2. Each class has a class goal of total pages to read (KG students can be read to by a parent or loved one) - each student's pages are added to the class total to win a prize!
PLUS there's a BONUS page opportunity - read books or stories about camping, the outdoors, nature, animals or wildlife, national parks and for each page read, you will double the total (take advantage of this great way to double your points)! Each student is bringing home a copy of the Reading Log to track pages read and a copy is attached here for you as well. Classes who earn prizes will be announced after all forms are turned in on Tuesday, April 4. Each class that meets its goal will win a prize!!

Fiddler on the Roof Tickets AVAILABLE for Purchase TODAY! The excitement is mounting as we close in on opening night of this year's ALCS Drama production of Fiddler on the Roof. This beloved American classic was the winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964 and has become musical theatre tradition. This highly engaging musical is infused with humor, warmth, and honesty. You'll leave the show humming such classic songs as "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker" and so many more!
Fiddler on the Roof is set in the little village of Anatevka and the story centers on Tevye, a poor milkman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to protect his daughters and instill them with traditional values in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Rich in historical and ethnic detail, Fiddler on the Roof's universal theme of tradition cuts across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, leaving audiences crying tears of laughter, joy and sadness. Learn more about Fiddler on the Roof HERE for the full synopsis. Age-appropriateness: depending on the reviewer, some say Fiddler on the Roof is appropriate for 7 and up while others say 10 and up; ALCS recommends that each parent should read the synopsis and consider the content in determining t he appropriateness of the musical for one's own younger children as you know your children best.
