Rock Climbing Team

The Lothrop Rock Climbing Team is about to start it's 5th year in December. Last year the Rock Climbing Team had 16 students sign up. In order to reduce the cost of the student membership we did fundraising. This year we are asking local businesses to sponsor our team in the hopes of bringing down the membership cost again. We already have 3 sponsors Pittsford Automotive Center, Bertrand Farms and Bissette Construction. We will also be selling Dunkin Donuts coupon books. Students wanting to join the team and take advantage of any discounts the fundraising offers, must commit to attending at least one team practice per month and participating in one team meet for the season. Please contact Margaret Daly meadaly66@comcast.net 282-6079 or Kelly Connaughton kfield16@yahoo.com 770-4767 with questions on our team.

Pirates of Penzance News

Hello 3rd and 4th grade parents,

We had our second week of auditions and the students that tried out for main roles have really impressed us! All casting will be finished before the Thanksgiving break and students will get a call letting them know what parts they are cast in. ALL 3/4 students will have a chance to participate in the production. We have a pirate chorus, a daughter chorus and Police chorus so there are plenty of parts outside of the main roles! We will keep you posted on rehearsals after the Thanksgiving break.


Any questions feel free to contact the Director- Mr. Houston, Musical Director- Ms. Mader, or Producer- Kelly Connaughton.
