February is Black History Month
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating Black history.

seven performances on May 17, 18, and 19 (matinee) as well as May 23 (matinee),

All parts for the musical will be cast and materials sent home before winter break.
Rehearsals will begin in January during theater time, which is Tuesdays and
Thursdays from 3:00 - 5:00. This time will increase to a daily rehearsal
(Monday - Thursday), and will run to 6:00 or 6:30, as we get into our tech

All students interested in auditioning are encouraged to audition. There are parts
available for students of all ability levels, including parts with a large amount of
solo singing and speaking as well as parts with only ensemble singing and no
speaking lines. All parts are important to the success of the production!
All seems well in the Darling nursery — until the children are whisked into the night sky by
the mischievous Peter Pan. There they are tossed into the wondrous island that is Neverland.
Who knows what might happen amid elegant mermaids, fairies, a dangerous ticking crocodile,
wild children, and a ragged band of pirates.
Our group of TeachNW actors, kindergarten through high school, invite you to join them for
an updated rendition of this classic tale. Our students and families have worked tirelessly
to create the sounds, light, props, sets, and costumes for TeachNW's second-ever theater production.

CALL FOR ART:
The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art invites submissions for the 16th annual
NewArt Northwest Kids exhibition
About the exhibition
This year’s theme, Strange Weather, encourages students to think creatively about the fragility of earth and human relationships. Students are invited to use their imagination and problem-solving skills to represent solutions for improving our world including solutions to climate-based challenges in our present and future.
Students should use this prompt to imagine an inclusive and sustainable future, illustrate an invention, or create a story:
Imagine the future: illustrate an invention that impacts climate issues or create a story that demonstrates your relationship with nature or how nature shapes your identity.
Submissions must include a fully completed entry form and be received by January 22, 2024.

November: Native American Heritage Month
We observe Native American Heritage Month in November to recognize the achievements and contributions of Native Americans.
The first American Indian Day in a state was declared on the second Saturday in May 1916 by the governor of New York. Several states celebrate the fourth Friday in September. Starting in 2014, many other cities and states adopted the holiday.
In 1990, President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 “National American Indian Heritage Month.” Similar proclamations, under variants on the name (including “Native American Heritage Month” and “National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month”), have been issued each year since 1994.
West Point Admissions Meeting. Please see the attached flier for information.

We wish to cordially invite your middle schooler to join us for Middle School Open Space at the LCC Learning Center, Tuesday 1:30-2:45 in Building 17 - we end in time to clean up before the Theatre.
One could call it a hangout, but we wanted to invoke a little more - the hope is that it becomes a space that kids can optionally attend [skip a week, join mid-year, etc.]. This is an opportunity for Middle School students to make connections outside of classes. What the kids do is entirely based on who is there that week! Art, board games, card games, are but a few of the options. I’m always taking suggestions and requests on what they want me to bring for them. We also take suggestions on snacks ;) (Lately it's been clay and Oreos - don't mix them up!)
For more information, contact our Middle School Open Space Adult Volunteer Open Space Host, Czarena Krell @ email@example.com
