Hey Strangers!

I hope you all have been having fun with the amazing Mrs. Sampson and Mrs. Murphy!  I have missed you very much.

I was just looking at the end of the year awards, and I think it’s worth sharing that this is always a hard time for me.  So many students at Salem Hyde do an amazing job throughout the year.  To pick just one person in every grade to get the music award seems like an impossible task.

Though I have this struggle with every grade, this year I can’t imagine just one music award in all of sixth grade.  You have worked so hard this year and I will miss you all so much.  I hope you all will continue with music in some way when you leave.

There’s a Twist…

For those of you who didn’t know, I (Mrs. Lefkus) am 8 months pregnant with my first baby!  Which is very exciting, except that complications are going to keep me out of school for the rest of the year.  I am heartbroken to leave the kids without saying goodbye.  I am so fortunate to work with your wonderful children every day and I will miss them very much!

To the cast and crew of Beauty and the Beast:  you’ve got this!  Relax!  I heard you did a great job today and I know you are going to be fine for the big premier.  Seriously, breathe!  It’s going to be great!

Please contact me any time for anything you need – clefkus@scsd.us.  I will miss you all!  See you in September!  And I promise to update you when Baby Lefkus arrives!

Time Flies!

We have three weeks left until Beauty and the Beast, Jr!  When did that happen?!

Shout out to the third graders- last year we had 22 black belts in third grade, and so far this year we have 28!  WOW!  And they still have two months left to earn more belts!  What an impressive group!  I can’t wait to see your Living Museum tonight!

Beauty and the Beast Cast List!

Congratulations to all who tried out- we had to make some very tough decisions when filling these roles, you all did a fantastic job!

Notice that some people have more than one part- we still have a few villagers whose roles need to be filled for songs and we are in need of more flatware, so if you have one part you may get a second one during rehearsals!

Sixth graders can pick up their scripts from 9:45-10:00, fifth graders from 11:15-11:30 in the music room.  If you miss your pick-up time you can get your script from 2:50-3:00 (dismissal).  Please study your lines over break!

Scripts

We are hoping to have the cast list up tomorrow night.  Fingers crossed!

If that is the case, sixth graders may pick up their scripts from the music room on Friday between 9:45 and 10:00, fifth graders may pick up their scripts between 11:15 and 11:30.  Please do not leave class with asking your teacher first! If you miss your pick-up time you can get your script at dismissal.

Cast members:  We are expecting you to get started reading your script over break!  Crew:  Your scripts are much larger.  Be patient- we will get them to you when rehearsals start.

REMINDER:  IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNED UP FOR SAY YES BEFORE BREAK YOU CANNOT START REHEARSALS WITH US WHEN WE COME BACK TO SCHOOL!

While you’re waiting for the cast list please enjoy these pictures of a certain spoon you know from her high school performance of Beauty and the Beast.
