The Friends of Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Lothian, MD, a 1,700 acre county park, is hosting a special event geared to children on Saturday, February 28th from 10:00 - 1:00 p.m. Greenstreet Gardens, a nursery in Lothian, has offered us their space for this event because ours at the Sanctuary is too small to hold much of a crowd, although it still provides an intimate setting for children to be close up to the speakers. Two bird experts are coming with their live bluebirds and owls to discuss their special places in nature. Children will also be able to dissect owl pellets, and make a bird feeder to take home. We hope you will go out and enjoy on the nature adventure on the 28th. For more details click here.
Crofton Middle School Parents,We are excited to begin Drama Club this week! Our club runs solely on volunteer power and we need your help in whatever way you are able. Some jobs require being with us during one or more of the club meetings; some can be done outside club hours. Please read over the descriptions below and reply to this e-mail to assist us with one or more of our needs. Please consider helping us in some way – many hands make light work!
Scenery – we have a parent willing to coordinate the creation of our scenery but she will need a lot of assistance. Whether you are an artist in your own right or can simply follow directions and paint in the lines (or mostly in the lines) we could use your help! We will attempt to get all scenery done during our 5 weeks of drama club. If you can assist at one or more of our meetings, please let us know.
Snacks – we need one or two parents to purchase healthy snacks in bulk and bring them to the club before school lets out each week. You would be reimbursed for the full cost.
Sign-in – we need one parent to help us sign in students as they come to club each week. This parent could then help with painting or outlining scenery. Sign up for one or more weeks.
Photography – do you like to take pictures? We’d love to have someone talk candid photos during one or two of our weekly meetings and then dress rehearsal and our performance. We have been able to make DVDs available for sale in the past and would love to do this again.
Advertising – this parent would help create flyers for distribution and posting throughout the school and send announcements of the performance through Woody’s Backpack, CWES Facebook Page, etc.
You may note that we don’t have a person assigned to props or costumes. This year, each play (and its actors) will be responsible for ensuring they have all they need for their performance. Of course, we will assist with any of the more difficult items but wanted you to be aware that each director will be discussing this with her cast in the future.Thank you!
