We have several announcements for Wednesday and wanted to share them with you.
Bible Verse of the Week:
"Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."
We will discuss this verse in Advisory this week. Students, see if you can memorize it! There could be a fun reward if you do!
Lunch on Wednesday:
Subway sandwiches. Students can purchase a 4" sandwich for $2.50 at the front desk upon entering school. You will get a BLUE LUNCH TICKET for each sandwich you purchase.
We have a wonderful new choir teacher we would like to welcome to Brighton Academy. Her name is Mandy Boothe. I have included her biography below.
My name is Mandy Boothe, and I will be teaching a choir class at Brighton Academy this fall! The class will meet on Thursdays at 11:30am-12:30pm.
The focus and spirit of this choir class will be to build students' confidence and learn to work together and encourage each other along the way to artistic excellence. During each class, we will sing vocal warm-ups, learning about proper vocal technique, then we will learn a wide range of songs from traditional choir pieces to pop songs to Broadway musical numbers. We will effectively "stage" each song, including learning light choreography and movement, in preparation for performance!
I have an extensive background in music, theater, and teaching. I received my BA in Musical Theater and Vocal Performance from North Central College in Naperville, IL. There I was involved in several concert and show choirs as well as jazz ensembles and musical theater productions. I have been teaching private voice and piano lessons for 3 years at The Culture House in Olathe, in addition to musical directing several shows there. I have a passion for teaching and inspiring creativity in people of all ages! In addition to teaching, I sing with my jazz trio around the KC area, and I had the privilege of playing Eponine in The Culture House's production of Les Miserables this past summer!
If you'd like to meet me and see what our choir is all about, I would love to invite you and your student to observe our class this Thursday!
Looking forward to meeting you!
Mandy will be at lunch tomorrow and will be talking to students about choir. She would also like to use that opportunity to meet parents of Brighton Academy students. Please feel free to stop by to meet Mandy during lunch time from 11:40-12:20 tomorrow. If you want more information about the Choir, please contact Mandy at firstname.lastname@example.org
