Hello All!
Glen Arden is excited to announce that we will be having a Talent Show on March 22nd from 5:30-7:30!  We will be looking for all sorts of acts including, but not limited to: singing, dancing, playing an instrument, reciting a poem, a cheerleading routine, an acting skit, a magic trick, stand-up comedy, or a gymnastic routine!  If you have questions about other kinds of acts, please ask either Ms. Bumsted or Mrs. Harcharik.  
 
The auditions will be on February 16th, from 3-6pm in the gym.  Students will need to supply anything they need for their acts, including music, props, instruments, etc.  Acts should be kept to about three and a half minutes.  Students are allowed to work in groups for their acts if they wish!  In order for students to audition, they will need to have their parent present as we will not have a general pick-up time.  If your student goes to after-school, they can come drop by at their audition time, and then return to the after-school program.  Everyone will need to go home as they normally do on the day of auditions.  
 
Here is the link to sign-up for an audition slot:

Sign-ups for auditions will open TODAY February 2nd to the 15th.  If you don't have access to a computer, the sign-ups will be in the front office on February 11th from 7:30-3:30. 
 
Students who are in 1st-4th grade are welcome to participate!  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Ms. Bumsted (rachael.bumsted@bcsemail.org) or Mrs. Harcharik (karen.harcharik@bcsemail.org).  
 
Thank you!
Ms. Bumsted + Mrs. Harcharik
