Daily Announcements

Dear Senior Parents,

     We are so excited to announce that the planning for Grad Night 2018 is about to begin.  The 2017 team will be passing on the torch on ThursdaySept 22 at 6:30 in the Library.  At this meeting we will be making the decisions about who will do what , last years team will give tips and hand over the binders from previous years.  It will be important to get your team together early so planning and fundraising can begin soon. There will be many volunteer opportunities big and small. 

To help to pull off an event like this, we need lots of parent involvement, at whatever level you are able volunteer! If you would like to be involved but can’t make the meeting, please be on the look out for the next announcement of the next meeting.  It will have the new chair people to contact.

Remember, this event is designed to provide a safe and sober alternative for our graduates to celebrate their achievement. Statistics show that more teenagers are involved in accidents and fatalities on this night, than any other time of the year. Of these fatalities occurring from midnight-3:00am, 77% involved alcohol and/or drugs. As parents, teachers and members of our community, our goal is to provide these graduating seniors with a fun way to celebrate, while still keeping our kids and community safe.

Sheldon Grad Night is a parent and community sponsored event this is not sponsored by the school or 4j school district.

We hope to see you in the library on Thursday night.

Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, or As You Will is the first major production for Sheldon Theatre this year.  Though the show doesn’t happen until mid-January, auditions will take place the first week of October to give us plenty of time to get Shakespeare’s words convincingly in our mouths and to build a gigantic set.  Audition and information packets are available NOW in the front office or the choir room.  We need lots of backstage help besides needing actors onstage.  Please see Nancy Anderson in the choir room to ask questions.
