All of SATEC’s 5th-8th grade classes will be participating in a Veteran’s Day Celebration held at Taylor Park on Tuesday, November 11th from 10:00-11:30am.  This event will an opportunity for the students of Saint Albans to honor our valued veterans alongside their community members.  Permission slips for this event have gone home with students.  Please make sure your child returns the signed form by Tuesday morning.

This year, SATEC drama will perform the 2014-2015 musical No Strings Attached. “Everyone’s favorite knothead (Pinocchio) gets an extreme makeover in this hip and hilarious musical adaptation of the classic tale of a talking puppet who gets into all kinds of trouble before learning what it truly means to be human. Once he feels the magical jolt in Professor Pinecone’s handshake, Carl embarks on the audition of his life.  In this play-within-a-play, Carl becomes Pinocchio and improvises his way through the story, meeting some familiar characters — including a cricket with an attitude (“I’m Gonna Bug Ya”), the devious fox and cat (“Easy Money”) and the memorable Blues Fairy (“Blues Fairy Mama”) — as well as some new ones.  With the help of this eclectic cast, Carl stumbles upon life’s lessons as he’s forced to make important decisions.  With fun dialogue, a variety of modern music (hip-hop, gypsy swing, bluegrass and good ol’ rock ’n’ roll!) and a surprise ending, audiences of all ages will enjoy this new take on an old favorite!”
The drama group is open to all students in grades 4-8 and provides an opportunity for acting, singing (solos and chorus), dance, tech (lights, sound, props and costumes) and of course, friendship. Drama rehearsals will be on Mondays and Fridays from 3:30-5:00 and you must be able to commit to both days. Rehearsals will begin on Monday, December 15th and will run until the final production on Friday, April 10th at 7:00 P.M.  Auditions will be held on Monday, December 8th from 3:30-4:30 in the KIVA.  If you are interested in participating in tech, you do not need to audition, however, please fill out a permission slip.  Permission slips and audition scripts will be available on Monday, December 1st at both the front and back offices.  Please return forms to Ms. Thompson no later than Thursday, December 4th.
