Are you ready for a fun filled week at Ellis!? We will spend most of the week preparing for the upcoming musical. Now that we've finished writing our script and the lyrics to our song, there is much to be done. Casting will take place Monday for each of the parts in the skit. You will not need to memorize any lines, just read them from the paper. I will audition everyone who wishes to have a part and then post the cast list by the end of the day Monday. You can then start to memorize your lines! We will start rehearsing the skit Tuesday morning. Our costume and prop committees can start creation their masterpieces. Please keep a running list of everything you need me to pick up at the store. There is no need for anyone to have to spend their own money on supplies, because last year's ticket sales will fund what we require. Speaking of tickets: they will go on sale Monday in the media center for $5.00 each. Those students in 4,5,6 grade do not need to buy tickets, but everyone else who wishes to see the performance at Asbury on May 16th at 7:00 will need to purchase one.
Field day will take place this Friday! Please return the permission slip no later than Thursday. It is important that you pack the following items for our day in Daffin Park: bottled water, a picnic lunch (or school lunch), bug spray, sunblock, comfortable gym attire, and athletic shoes. You may also wish to bring a change of clothes for when we return to Ellis in the afternoon. I look forward to this fun day of fitness and friendly competition! Please see the letter below from Coach Lesley for more information.
Finally, if you have any media center books checked out, please return them to Ms. Laura by this Thursday. There will be no more book check-out after May 8.
Enjoy your weekend,
