Hi Moana Jr. campers and families,


The campers had a great Day 2, started off by reviewing everything they learned yesterday. Once they clarified any questions they had, they kept working through more of the script as Mr. Markwood continued teaching vocals, Ms. Chelsea taught more choreography, and Ms. Ann brought the entire cast together to stage more of the show.


To finish the day, the campers started at the beginning of the script and ran through the entire show up to where they finished learning staging. It looks great so far, we can't wait to see how much more they get through tomorrow and the rest of the week. The cast is having a great time and putting together a strong show so far!


Be sure to check out our recap video below!

Reminders

1. PICKUP TIME - Pickup starts promptly at 3:45. We ask that parents arrive as close to that time as possible so students aren't left to sit with our staff past camp's close


2. DROPOFF - When dropping off your students for the day, please pull all the way up. We ask that you don't park and get out of your cars to bring your students in the building, or allow your student to walk across the parking lot to arrive every day. It can be a safety issue and we don't have staff designated to watch traffic and crossing lanes for students.


3. SUPPLIES - Please make sure students pack pencils and highlighters in their clear bins every day. This is important for them to take notes to help remember all they learn for the show throughout the day.


4. SCRIPTS - Please make sure campers bring their scripts every single day. They need them in order to keep up in all rehearsals during camp.


5. MASKS - Students are still required, per LCPS policy, to wear masks while inside LCPS school facilities. Please don't forget to pack your campers a mask, and extras, when they arrive for camp every day.


6. DRESS CODE - Please keep in mind the dress code when getting ready for camp each day. We want the campers to be comfortable, but not in any clothing that they may need to continually adjust as it can distract/limit them and their movement.


7. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!!!!

COMMUNICATION PAGE

Our Communication page is an awesome resource for you! Not only will it inform you about who to direct your questions to over the next two weeks, but it will also help you track all of the information. Each day of camp, we will be sending you an email and placing it on the communication page. Check it out here!

Email Communication Always Preferred

Mr. CJ is in Mississippi in a residency for theatre education the first week of camp. As a result, email is ALWAYS the preferred method of communication. He will be able to forward your emails quickly to the appropriate staff members.

WHAT TO BRING

Clear Bins



CLEAR BINS

We request that all students bring their materials in a clear bin. No book bags. This allows us to help students quickly and efficiently find materials. Additionally, the clear bin is a great way for students to store things in a tidy way. Would you please not bring book bags to the program? We strongly recommend a large enough bin to fit a folder, a lunch box, shoes, make-up, and misc. Items.


Here is the Link we are recommending from Amazon.

Jazz Shoes

JAZZ SHOES

Please make sure that your child has Jazz Shoes ready to go for the first day of Camp! We highly recommend you buy these early. While we will be providing a costume for every student, we do not provide shoes. Please visit Amazon and type in "JAZZ SHOE." They can be either tan or black. HERE IS A LINK TO SOME JAZZ SHOES ONLINE

LUNCHES

Please be sure to pack lunches. Microwaves will not be available. Lunches will be served between 12 and 1. If a student forgets to bring a lunch, please bring it to the school and leave it with the Director of Health and Safety, Ms. Katie Rivers.


Please steer clear of anything with nuts, as we have a few students with severe nut allergies.

How do I support My Child with Casting?

We have created a great resource for you as a parent. We know that casting brings up a lot of emotions for you and your child. We encourage you to review our comprehensive Emotional Support document before sharing the cast list with your child so you may help them through all emotions.
