Talent Show Time!
Frontier Charter Virtual Talent Show!
Frontier Charter will be producing a digital Talent Show this year and we would love to provide students with the opportunity to share their talents with our community.
Students are strongly encouraged to select a talent that they have practiced and feel confident in doing. Suggestions for acts include singing, dancing, playing an instrument, juggling, storytelling, performing a skit or magic, etc.
All acts must be safe and appropriate for a school environment.
All acts, song or lyrics, skits, outfits or costumes, and props must be appropriate and align with the ASD dress code and policies.
The background and filmed environment should be clear of distractions and inappropriate images and content.
Frontier staff reserve the right to deny any act or performance if it is inappropriate.
Each student is allowed to be in only ONE solo performance.
Submissions may be edited to help with time and flow.
Preference will be given to those acts that demonstrate and appear to have been practiced and prepared.
All submissions are limited to 3 minutes.
Submissions will be shared on digital platforms, such as Frontier’s YouTube channel. – Please note, if copyrighted music is used, the act may not be allowed on Frontier’s YouTube channel. Talk to Liz Hunt if you have any questions about copyrighted music.
Submissions must be received by Friday, March 24th
Families will record their submission using their tablet, phone or computer. Submissions will then need to be deposited into a shared Frontier Charter Talent Show Google Drive.
In order to participate, a parent/guardian must complete the following form:
After the form is complete, an email with further instructions and details will be shared, including invitation to submit recordings.
We look forward to sharing with all of you. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Liz Hunt at email@example.com

AK STAR Assessment
AK STAR testing is upon us. Many families ask, “Why should I test?” Great question. This is a great opportunity for you to see where your child is in reading and math statewide. We can then assist you in filling in any learning gaps.
With that in mind, we’ve made the test sessions simple, ready, and available now for sign-up. Tuesday and Wednesday, April 4 and 5, are grades 3-6 tests. Thursday and Friday, April 6 and 7, are grades 7-9 tests. For grades 5, 8, and 10 the science assessment is March 30th.
