The Weston Weekly November 19, 2021

Good afternoon. Next week will be a shortened week due to Thanksgiving. School will only be in session on Monday and Tuesday. Students will return on Monday, November 29. Your next Weston Weekly will be published on Friday, December 3. I wish everyone a very happy and restful Thanksgiving!

As the weather turns colder, please ensure your student is dressed appropriately for outdoor recess.

Lost & Found:

Our pile is growing! Please take a look at the photos below and have your student claim their items.

Virtual Art Show:

Weston students, Mrs. Heller, and Mrs. Salee have been working hard in Art class this year. Please click here to see your student's masterpieces! The kids worked very hard on their projects and this is a virtual art show which is awesome! This is also a fundraiser so the child's work can be purchased framed!

Sports, Clubs & Community Involvement

We are very excited to announce auditions for our summer 2022 musical, Seussical the Musical! This will be our first production in a few years in which there will be roles for both adults and children and we would love to have a good turn-out of Hancock county residents. Attached is our audition notice as well as audition information. May we ask that you forward and/or post it to all G-C students, faculty, and staff? We are very much looking forward to this production and would love to see you all there, whether on-stage or out in the audience! Thank you!

  1. All roles are open and available.
  2. Leads will be filled by adults, but ensemble roles are open for students age 10-18. We will also need a small group of dancers only.
  3. Be prepared to sing 16-32 bars or a verse and chorus of a Broadway song (not from this show). Bring PRINTED music in the key you want to sing in. No acapella singing or singing with tracks. Also, prepare to dance a short routine.
  4. Questions: Contact Director, Beth Ray-Scott at barayscott@gmail.com
