Dear Parents, Guardians, & Community Members,
We have a wonderful opportunity upon us! The Young Americans are back! For those of us who are unaware what this means, the Young Americans are a group of people who promote song, dance, performance, improvisation, and music with workshops! They work with students in grades 3-college!
The Young Americans will be at Green Mountain Union High School, in Chester, VT, from Thursday, September 28, until Saturday, September 30. If you choose to participate, it with be for three full days and one evening, as there are rehearsals all day Thursday, Thursday evening, all day Friday, and two performances on Saturday. If students want to partake in this fantastic opportunity, Friday will be counted as an off-site school day, not an absent! I, unfortunately, cannot be a chaperone for this event due to prior commitments, including Weatherfield's Open House. With that said, transportation, cost, and supervision will be a parental responsibility.
We have had representatives from Weathersfield School participate in this and they absolutely loved it! The cost for the three-day workshop is $59 which includes a t-shirt in which the students perform. For more information in regards or to register for this great opportunity, go to www.youngamericans.org/us. If you have any questions, send me an email!
I am bummed that I cannot participate, but this would be an awesome experience for those interested!
