What a huge hit RECESS WITH DADS WEEK was! We asked and you came....even in the heat! We loved having you! We will have another Recess with Dads Week in the Spring Semester.
Here's the run down of new news:
1. CAREER DAY: -Career Day for 3rd, 4th, and 5th is coming on October 25! Thank you to all the volunteers who signed up at open house. There are still several slots available. You do not need to have a student in those grade levels to participate. This is a great opportunity for students to learn about different jobs and what it takes to be successful. If you are interested please contact Joy Fofana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. RNE KIDS ARE OPERA SINGERS!- On October 11, twenty Roswell North Elementary Chorus starlets are taking the stage at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center in the Atlanta Opera's Studio Tour debut performance of the opera, "Hansel and Gretel!" This is the first stop on the Atlanta Opera Studio Tour and Roswell North was especially chosen to be the children’s chorus alongside professional opera singers. What an honor!
To celebrate its 40th year on the road, the 2019-20 season features a new adaptation of Humperdinck’s enchanting fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel, in which students are invited to take center stage alongside Atlanta Opera artists. Suitable for all ages, Hansel and Gretel brings students on an adventure through a magical world filled with mystical forest animals, a captivating Sandman, and lots of sweets! Adapted and directed by Brenna Corner, an alumna of the Opera’s Studio Artist program, the 45-minute English version of Humperdinck’s classic opera teaches valuable lessons about listening, kindness, and not judging a Witch by her wardrobe.
Want to witness history being made??? Tickets are available for both of their performances (11 am and 7 pm) at https://ev2.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/SEGetEventList?groupCode=RCACFAM&linkID=ta-usa9
