Mrs. Fox, Ms. Roberts, Ms. Tubbs, Ms. Dillard,
How do you spell HILARIOUS?!?!?!
Auditions for THEATREworks’ Spring Musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, are scheduled for January 23-25. The auditions will take place in the Studio Theatre and Choir Room immediately after school. In addition, there will be audition workshops on Tuesday, January 17th, and Friday, January 20th prior to the audition.
At The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. This show is H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!!
Please stop by K009 or PAC1 for more information or to check out a script.

The Elk Grove Unified School District has launched a new secure EGUSD Portal website that will allow parents and guardians the option to receive their student’s official academic progress reports and report cards electronically. Parents and guardians will also be able to securely update and change opt-out elections, such as directory information, posting of student photos, and movies and videos. Additional features and reports are planned for the portal in the near future that will provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to view other academic information about their student rather than receive printed reports through the U.S. mail.
