Box Tops 4 Education

It’s Box Tops submission time again!  Get them off of your counters and out of your junk drawers. Each of the primary buildings has a drawer labeled Box Tops near the office. There are also collection boxes in the office at the Middle School and at the Board of Education office.

In December Wyoming PSA received a check for $952.10 – thanks to you! Each of those Box Tops is worth a dime, and as you can see they really add up. Go to www.btfe.com to see if you regularly purchase a brand name product that carries a Box Top, or to download weekly coupons.

Turn in your Box Tops before Friday February 26th so they can be included in our school’s April check – it’s our last chance this school year to earn cash for our schools. All Box Tops turned in after this date will go toward next fall’s check.

Thanks for your help!

The Ohio State Board of Education has adopted a plan that enables students to earn high school credits in non-traditional ways.  This plan is referred to as Credit Flexibility.

The Wyoming City School District has developed a credit flexibility plan that will allow high school students to earn credit by:  a) completing coursework, b) testing out of or demonstrating mastery of course content, c) pursuing one or more educational options in accordance with the District’s Credit Flexibility plan, or d) any combination of the above.

Student choosing to take advantage of this opportunity must complete a Wyoming High School Credit Flex Application and submit it to the Middle School or High School Guidance Office no later than March 1st, 2016. Applications are available on the High School website under Curriculum Guide as well as in the Middle School and High School Guidance offices.

For information about how credit flexibility may apply to your child’s academic planning, please contact Monica Moore, High School Counselor at 206-7059 or moorem@wyomingcityschools.org

VARIETY SHOW AUDITIONS!  The Variety Show is April 15 and 16 – you must be available for both shows.  The theme this year is USA.

The auditions will be on Wednesday, March 9.  From 4:15 -4:45 p.m. we will audition 8th graders who wish to be considered as emcees.  From 5:00 – 6:45 p.m. we will audition individual/group acts.

Rehearsals will be March 17, March 23, April 6, April 7, April 12, April 14 – if your child is cast, they will be called for half of the rehearsals (depending which act they are in).   Spring break falls in the middle of this schedule so it is very important they are available when they are called.

The Sign-UP Genius link for auditions will be created and go live on March 1. You can also check the blog at www.wyomingms.blogspot.com for details.
When you sign up, you will HAVE TO LIST YOUR ACT with title of act, song title, and a description of what you are performing. You will also have to list everyone that is in your group.  Those who fail to do this, will NOT be permitted to audition.

Students may only audition for ONE thing (except 8th graders who may also audition to be an emcee).  There will also be an 8th grade closing number that will be approved…. details will be communicated to 8th grade families – this is in addition to anything else for which your child will audition.

ALL Acts are limited to 3 minutes.

ONLY REALLY WELL- PREPARED and WELL-DONE ACTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.  They MUST be polished and perfect at the audition to be considered for the show.  The rehearsal schedule is just waaaayyyyy too short to consider acts that need work.

It is a VARIETY SHOW – think outside the box and come up with something creative!   There is safety in numbers, especially for younger students. If only 20 acts are selected, solo performances from younger students are not as likely to be cast. They won’t take 20 singer-songwriter acts– so dance, juggle, do something different!  This is just parent to parent advice for when you are helping your child find something to audition as I like everyone to be cast, but they really can’t take everyone. Make sure your child is well-prepared!

From Spring:    “If people do not know their song, or they choose the same song as someone else, they need to know that someone else may be chosen over them. They need to look at the sign up and list the song they are singing or playing or skit they are doing on the Sign Up Genius link or they will not be allowed to audition.”
