Cab Blood Drive on March 12th!

Sign up to donate today!

On Tuesday, March 12, from 8-1pm, Cab Calloway’s National Honor Society will be hosting its annual blood drive through the Blood Bank of Delmarva in Cab’s gym!

The blood bank relies on donations from drives like this one so hospitals have ample supplies of blood when they need it most. Though donations after tragic events are helpful, it is the prior donations that provide the initial support and can determine someone’s survival.

We encourage all students, staff, and parents who are over the age of 17 and weigh more than 110 pounds to come out and donate on March 12th. Our goal is 50 donations, but we are positive that we can beat that goal with your help!

The entire donation process will take approximately one hour. In order to donate, you must sign up for an appointment at https://donate.bbd.org/. When registering, use the sponsor code: CABC. You can find a PDF that will guide you through the registration process below.

If you have any questions about the blood drive, please email jane.rae@redclay.k12.de.us or contact the Blood Bank of Delmarva directly.

We hope to see many of you on March 12th!

Cab Students attend “Once on This Island”

The annual middle school musical performance!

article_1

Monday, February 4, 2019, at Cab Calloway School of the Arts, all Cab middle and high school students were treated to a morning performance of the middle school musical production of “Once on This Island”.

Taking place in the French Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, “Once on This Island” is a musical set during a hurricane when a group of children decide to tell a story to comfort one another during the storm. The story is about a young woman who tries to follow her heart and four magical gods who make her journey difficult, however, in the end she uses the power of love to bring together people of different social classes. This is a modern retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” and explores Haitian culture and spirituality through beautiful Caribbean-style music.

The Musical consisted of a large cast of sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. Most of which were comprised of Cab Calloway Theater, Vocal Music and Dance majors. Directed by middle school theatre teachers Sarah Nowak and Amanda Curry, original lyrics written by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty.  The production included Caribbean themed songs such as “Why We Tell the Story”, “We Dance”, “Waiting for Life”, “Pray” and “Mama Will Provide”.

Elaborate production went into prop, costume and stage design.  Attendees were treated to dazzling light and sound production from high school Theater Production and Communication Arts majors.  At one point during the musical it was actually raining in the middle of the stage, unsurprisingly during the song “Rain”.

On Tuesday, February 5th, there will be an encore performance of the musical for Red Clay Consolidated School District elementary school students.  This is a rescheduled performance due to the two hour delayed schedule from last week’s freezing weather.
