With a book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods JR.
is based on the Broadway production which won several Tony Awards, including Best
Score, Best Book, and Best Actress in a Musical. The musical follows a Baker and his Wife
who learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door. The couple
embarks on a quest – swindling, deceiving and stealing from such already-victimized
characters as Cinderella, Little Red Ridding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (fresh off the beanstalk!)
– to get the special objects required to break the spell. However, the story doesn’t simply
end “happily ever after” as each character must now face the consequences of his/her

C-Heights Students Step Up for Others!
E House learners recently completed a challenge-based project to make a positive impact on our community. No surprise many included a fundraising component. These groups surveyed their peers and designed a appeals based on their data. They successfully raised more than $350 from other C-Heights students to help the Humane Society, Sunshine Place, The Road Home, and the River Food Pantry. Way to step up for others, C-Heights!
Bus Stop Reminder
If you drive your child to the bus stop in the morning, please make sure you’re not parking at the bus stop location. The bus needs to have access to the bus stop to safely allow students to board the bus. Please park at least 50 feet away to give the bus room to stop and ensure good visibility. Students should wait until the bus has come to a complete stop before approaching the bus to board.
Riding an Unassigned Bus
Please remember that students are only allowed to ride on their assigned bus. Students may not ride home with friends, even with a note from a parent. Please make alternative transportation arrangements for these special circumstances.
Parent Drop-off and Pick-up
Parents should only be dropping off and picking up students in the front of the building (Kroncke entrance). Parent traffic should not mingle with school bus traffic, and parents should NEVER be dropping off/picking up students in the back of the building where the buses drop off and pick up.
If you have any questions about busing please contact Kobussen at 608-825-8700, ext. 5509.
