FYI: HAPPENINGS AND EVENTS

POT LUCK AND MOVIE SHOWING: FRIDAY, APRIL 1st

CAAA, SEAC, UPG and CSD are proud to combine forces to present a very special night of community building and thought provoking discussion. A family-style potluck will begin at 5:30 pm. Bring a dish and socialize and then stay for a free movie screening of "Beyond Measure". The "Beyond Measure" documentary examines project based learning from the vantage point of schools that have adopted the practice. A facilitated discussion will take place after the movie. Don't worry about the kids. The critically acclaimed animated movie "Inside Out" will be shown for our young participants and supervision will be provided free of charge. Please join us for this one-of-a-kind opportunity to dine and discuss together.


Indicate your potluck attendance through the sign up genius below. View "Beyond" Measure" movie trailer and confirm your seat for the screening by clicking on the link located directly under the following "Beyond Measure" movie poster.

CHELTENHAM HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTS: FOOTLOOSE THE MUSICAL, APRIL 14-16

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

(Some adult situations, parental guidance suggested.)
