Bravo! Willy Wonka Jr.!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! CONGRATULATIONS to our shining stars of Willy Wonka Jr., Avella De Gennaro, and co-star, Justin Davidowski, who gave OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCES last night, at the Howard Brubeck Theatre, at Palomar College, San Marcos.  CONGRATULATIONS also to our Seventh Graders: Anna Stephens, Alisa Sumult, and Mukunda Leahy-Paragiri. Your performances were FABULOUS! WOW! 🙂

MANY, MANY, MANY SPECIAL THANKS to Ms. Regan, Ms. Deb’bora (Amazing Directors/Choreographers), Mrs. Nicky Crawford, Mr. Enrico, Mr. Jesse (Incredible Musicians), Mrs. Patty Davidowski (Show Chair/Front of House Manager), Mr. Matthew Perdoni (Set Designer), Nino DeGennaro (Co-Stage Manager) and Ellen Lakin (Head of Props), and many more THANKS to all the dedicated parents who volunteered to help in so many capacities.  More thanks next week, five more shows! 🙂

CONGRATULATIONS to the Seventh Graders and Miss Lida, on winning the coveted Champions’ Trophy, in the Middle School, on Friday, at our annual Field Meet.  Well deserved!  🙂 CONGRATULATIONS also to the Fifth Graders and Mrs. Hayes, on winning the Champions’ Trophy in the Senior Elementary.  Well done!  🙂

This coming week in literature, my Seventh Graders will continue to read Tales of Greek Heroes by Roger Lancelyn Green.  They will review for the Final Examination in English.  Then, they will work on finishing their grammar and punctuation editing workbooks. They will continue to watch Wuthering Heights, for Literature on DVD, on Friday.

This week in Drama Class, my Seventh Graders will perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream, on Monday, June 4, in the Amphitheater, at 1:00p.m.  All are welcome to attend!   Please encourage your child to study his/her cues and lines.

The “Final Tests” will be given on Monday, June 11 through Wednesday, June 13.  Your child/teenager received a comprehensive guideline to study for the Finals, the first week of May, which should eliminate any stress.


  • Willy Wonka Jr. will have two shows today, Saturday, June 2, one show on Friday, June 8, and two shows on Saturday, June 9.  Please support this show, it is AMAZING!

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Please study your cues and lines for A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
  • Finish your Persuasive Speech, which is due on Friday, June 8. The Willy Wonka Jr. performers may have more time, if necessary.

Joy, feeling one’s own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul, but especially, the child’s soul.  ~ Maria Montessori

Enjoy your weekend and have a grand week ahead.
