HSM2 Week 2!

It is great to share this experience with you!

This past week was magical!

Hello RRPA COMMUNITY,


It goes without saying, but this past week was simply magical. To be with you again, in the space, rehearsing after a year of unprecedented losses. What struck me was your personal and artistic growth. Thank you for choosing to be a part of the RRPA Family. We wouldn't be the same without you!


Please read this email carefully. There are a lot of schedule updates! Please make note of the following:


1. Call time for your ensemble/character.

2. Updated Tech Week Schedule with AP Test Conflict Form.

3. Updated Performance Schedule with Understudy Performance.


***As a reminder, if you prefer to read this newsletter in a different language, that option is available to you at the bottom of the newsletter.


See you this week!

FUNDRAISING REMINDERS

The Covid-19 Pandemic is having a tremendous impact on our budget. We are asking that every student help by participating in fundraising opportunities providing through the production.

There are three options for participating in our fundraising. We kindly ask that all students participate in at least 1 option. If you have difficulty with fundraising, please reach out to anthony.cimino-johnson@lcps.org as soon as possible.


1. OUTDOOR FLOWER SALES - These flowers are beautiful. Information is forthcoming. Please sell 3 Flats of Flowers. Flowers are now on sale through our website at www.rockridgeperformingarts.org


2. DONOR/ADVERTISEMENT - Please secure a donor or advertiser for a minimum of $75.

We appreciate all of your support in these challenging times.

HOW TO READ THE CALENDAR

Our rehearsal calendar is located on our website. You can also click the button below to access our calendar. We know this calendar is full and can sometimes be confusing. Here is what to look for:


1. Look for the HSM:2 Rehearsal. Rehearsals begin in early March.

2. Open the rehearsal and look at the information.

3. Look for either your name or your ensemble's name.

4. If it reads "Entire Cast" or "Entire Company," that is you!

5. Please arrive 15 minutes before rehearsal to take temperatures and fill out the covid screening form.


***The production team will complete the rehearsal calendar after the 16th when registration is closed, and conflicts have been submitted.

VIRTUAL ASYNCHRONOUS PARENT MEETING

Our parent meeting is both online and asynchronous. Please be sure to visit our PARENT MEETING PAGE, browse through the slideshow, and fill out the confirmation form.
