We are participating in our first community event! On December 7, we will be part of the Lancaster City Christmas Parade! We will be teaming up with iSPIRIT from iLEAD Lancaster in a cheer/dance routine. Practices will start next week at iLEAD Lancaster, Monday and Wednesday from 3:00 to 4:30. Please arrange to pick up your cheerleader from iLEAD Lancaster at 4:30 p.m. on those days. The parade theme is ‘Twas the Moon Landing Before Christmas, so our girls will be dressing as Buzz Lightyear. We’re asking if the girls can come in with plain to mildly designed large boxes to create their flight wings by November 18.
Before the year ends, the Bobcats will host a night of B-I-N-G-O on December 6 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. Please check future Monday Messages for details. We are looking for small businesses to donate goodies for gifts baskets to raffle off and give away as prizes! If you know of any willing/potential donors, please let us know.
Our boys have been practicing each week and have shown off their hard work in some scrimmages. Last Friday night, they played against Team Crush Basketball with doubles wins 34-22 for the first scrimmage and 41-39 for the second scrimmage.
Way to go, Bobcats! Thank you for making this happen, Coach Rob and Coach Adam!
The Art Club is holding a Winter Gala in January 2020. The Winter Gala will be a formal dinner in which community members will learn about our school and purchase art created by learners. Learners will receive 100% of the profit generated by their art.
In order to have their art selected for the gala, learners must create a portfolio which includes all the steps listed below. Each step will be a tab in the portfolio with appropriate documentation.
Explain! Create a rough draft of the title and explanation of your piece. The final title and explanation will be displayed next to your piece at the gala. This is your opportunity to express yourself to the audience and display your knowledge. For complete expectations of the explanation, click here.
