The second annual Lane SCA Talent Show will be held Monday, June 20th, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. All students are invited to audition for the show. All acts (including music, dance, poetry, etc.) must be school- and age-appropriate, even for the youngest audience members, and each student can only audition one act. Most importantly, your child must take the talent show seriously. It is a commitment. Students chosen to participate MUST attend ALL auditions, rehearsals, and the show itself. Auditions will be held on Thursday, June 2nd after school beginning at 4:15 p.m. in the Cafeteria; mandatory dress rehearsals will be held on Tuesday, June 14th and Thursday, June 16th from 4 to 6 p.m. Please see the audition packet for more important information and forms. Your form (permission slips) must be turned in by next Wednesday, June 1st, in order to audition. Late forms WILL NOT be accepted.
Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast - Wednesday, June 15th, 8:30 a.m.
Lane would not be what it is without all of its great volunteers! To thank you all for all that you’ve done over this past year, we will hold a special Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast on Wednesday, June 15th, at 8:30 a.m. in the Library. Children will be supervised in the Gym from 8:30 to 9 a.m. so their parents may enjoy the breakfast without distraction.
All volunteers who’ve helped us out this year – at school, at home, through the PTA – are invited to attend. If you’re planning to join us, please fill out the online RSVP form to let us know. This will help us ensure we have enough food and service items.
Thank you again for generous your support of our school, its staff, and its students!
