7th-12th Grade “Choreographers in Collaboration Concert”
The 2nd Annual “Choreographers in Collaboration Concert” will be held on Thursday September 14th. This will be presented as a school show during the day. Students can prepare pieces of their choice up to 3.5 minutes. Each choreographer should be collaborating with a different art form. We welcome all cast sizes from duets to large groups. This is open to 7th-12 graders ONLY. Auditions will be held on Wednesday September 6th. This is a fast turnaround for our show so we are expecting to see completed pieces. This is a great opportunity to connect with your peers over the summer and get creative. We look forward to seeing all your pieces! Please contact either Mrs. Madsen Robbins at email@example.com or Mrs. Cohen Sherlock at Allyson.Cohen@redclay.k12.de.us if you have any questions or concerns.

THANK YOU TO ALL
PTSO and the After Prom Committee would like to thank all CAB families who so generously donated to the success of the 2017 After Prom. We appreciate all that you did to help make the event a success: whether it was food that you donated, gift cards, monetary support and/or the time you volunteered to help with preparations or the night’s festivities at the Hockessin Athletic Club.
We’d also like to recognize two very special individuals who donated their professional services in order to help make the evening more special – please think of them when you are planning your own events and may need the assistance they can provide:
1. John McCafferty of MJMAC Productions was on hand to photograph and videotape at both Prom and After Prom. John is the friendly face behind the camera at SO MANY CAB events – he and his family are incredibly generous with their time and talent. You may not know that John also does Computer Repair and Tuneups, Photo Restoration, and Media Conversion. See mjmac.net for more email@example.com. 302-439-3666
2. Polly Tindle is a complete Party Planning Consultant for everything from home parties to big events. She has experience in menu planning, catering, choosing locations, setup, musicians. She willingly dug through her basement and brought a car full of supplies to help personalize our space at the HAC. (Tindlep@aol.com or 302-299-5117) Polly also coordinates Spring/Fall cooking classes done by local and visiting chefs at Everything But the Kitchen Sink – for more information see everythingbutthekitchensink.com.
