Alcott's Choir and Theatre Club for 5th Graders led by Mrs. Baker
ACT CLUB NEWS
Students and Parents of Alcott Elementary,
- ACT Club is our Alcott Choir and Theatre Club for students in the 5th grade. This group is free to students as it is sponsored by our wonderful PTSA. Please consider supporting our PTSA by joining as a member!
- We learn to sing as a choir, learning vocal production techniques and how to sing in parts. After the holidays we usually begin drama studies and work to produce a musical that is performed in the spring. For this group, students are asked to rehearse during one lunch and recess per week. Rehearsals are once a week during lunch and lunch recess. Parents volunteers will be asked to help with this group later in the spring.
- ACT Club is open to students who are in the 5th grade. Applications will be available in the Music room only, sometime in the fall, when announced by Mrs. Baker in Music classes. If your child wishes to apply for this group, you and they will need to fill out the application and bring it to Mrs. Baker PERSONALLY, handing it to her in person, not electronically. If parents have not signed the form, the student may not turn in their application. Please do not bring the form to your teacher or to the office. This procedure is designed to keep from having lost applications and to limit the number of students to around the first 35 to sign up.
- Please keep in mind that some evening rehearsals toward the performance of the musical will be required and may not be missed. There will only be three or four after-school rehearsals, but they are crucial to the performance of our musical. Please do not sign up your child for ACT Club if their priority will be sports or other activities in the spring and you might miss these required rehearsals. This group will be limited to 35 students so that all the members may have a chance to shine in the musical!
- Parents should know that in signing up for this extra group, your child will be giving performances to the public or online. In addition, your child’s name, photo or video is published in LWSD programs and on Teams. Please only sign up your child for ACT Club if you are in agreement to allowing them to perform and sharing their name and image with the Alcott Elementary community. Videos and photos of performances are only published on Teams, for LWSD only – not a public site. We take many photos and videos in order to assess our performance, use them for rehearsal and also to record the performance for students and families. We want to allow the group and parents to enjoy photos and videos of their performances. Thank you for your help and consideration in this matter.
