Puttin' on the Hits Date Changes

Puttin' On the Hits Families,


Shortly before Christmas we became aware that some remodeling efforts planned for Parker Auditorium over Spring Break would potentially not finish in time for our Puttin' On the Hits program scheduled for April 7th & 8th. We began working with Mr. Hubble in an attempt to negotiate a different schedule, extra shifts, or weekend hours for the group that has been contracted for this effort. We also pursued alternate venues, hoping to retain the same date and times that we had originally communicated for the program. We had full hope that one of these avenues would result in good news.


Despite the diligence, as of today we have exhausted all possible options for keeping the current plan for the Puttin' On the Hits program, and must announce a rescheduled date.


The Puttin' On the Hits public performances will be held on April 29th at Parker Auditorium. That moves the student performance to April 28th, and dress rehearsal back to April 26th.


We have adjusted the schedule for the entire program, beginning with the Registration Deadline next week, adding approximately 2 weeks for each milestone. Please see the revised schedule of events related to POTH below.


Thanks,

Angela Huff
POTH 2017 Chair

Check This Out...How the iPads are being used to enhance instruction and student learning at TZ

Volunteer in the Classroom or Field Trip--Need Background Check On File--Good for One Year

Greetings TZ Parents/Guardians!

At TZ we appreciate parents/guardians that would like to volunteer to assist in the classrooms and/or go on field trips. As a part of any volunteer activity, we must have a cleared background check on file for each person wanting to assist here at school or accompany a class on a field trip.

I wanted to take time to clarify the limited/volunteer background checks. These background checks are free to our volunteers. A limited/volunteer background check is only good for one calendar year. If a volunteer wishes to continue volunteering after one year, they must submit a new application.

A link to the form that needs to be completed and turned in to the TZ office is below. You may also come by the school to complete the form. We do need to have a copy of your driver’s license to process the request.

Again, we appreciate your willingness to volunteer.


Mr. Strube

Are you looking for an easy (no extra cost way) to HELP TZ?

If so...you may send in these to help TZ earn dollars for our school.

We are looking for a few good men to volunteer their time at TZ.

Men can play an important role in the lives of our students. Please consider volunteering an hour of your time each month to help students, and support TZ. We are looking for volunteers to help welcome students as they start their day, provide classroom support, and help with special events and spirit days. If you are willing to help, please fill out the form below. If you have questions, please contact Brian Cox at briancox@gogreencastle.com or Jon Strube at jstrube@greencastle.k12.in.us. Any men interested in volunteering would need to have a current background check on file. Please request a background check form from the TZ office or you may go to printable forms on the TZ webpage to print your own form.
