Blaine’s musical postponed… (from Blaine’s Tiger Tracks newsletter)

With regret, and after careful consideration, Ms. Laurel has decided to postpone the All School Musical until Spring 2014. After-school enrichment classes with a Theatrical Arts emphasis will be organized. This will allow students interested in theater to hone their skills and focus their efforts toward next spring. Please look for sign up information, dates and times via Tiger Tracks and Blaine Blast emails next week. Ms. Laurel hopes the Blaine community will understand and support this decision. One significant factor was the loss of a dear family member over Winter Break. For those who have been in this community for some time, you are aware this is one in a series of family losses over a short time. Please honor her decision to step back and recoup her energy and enthusiasm for teaching and all the great events still to come this year. Parents, your volunteer time is greatly valued and still needed for the remainder of the school year. More information will follow with opportunities for parents to participate and help the Multi Arts.
