Willy Wonka Kids

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two? Why, the Candy Man can, of course! We are excited to announce that Haisley is going to produce a musical written especially for elementary schools, WILLY WONKA Kids, based on the book, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” by Roald Dahl. Performances will be May 2nd and 3rd, 2013.

AUDITIONS for fourth and fifth graders to play the featured roles begin December 10th both during and after school. Students must fill out an audition information form, conflict calendar and have permission from their parent/guardian. Students wanting to audition should sign up for a time slot on the stage during lunch.

All first through fifth graders who want to be involved in the musical either on stage in supporting roles or off stage helping in other ways, must also get permission but need not audition.

PARENTS, we would love to satisfy your desire to work behind the stage in various roles, too!

Please click Haisley Players for more information and to download the appropriate audition forms and permission slip. Some hard copies will be available in the Main Office.

Girls on the Run: Volunteers Needed

Girls on the Run: Volunteers Needed!!  

We would like to offer Girls on the Run at Haisley the Spring 2013 and are seeking parents and/or teachers who are willing to volunteer their time to make a difference in the lives of girls in their community.

What is Girls on the Run?

Girls on the Run is an innovative, non-profit after school program that uses running to help prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. Their character-building program focuses on building self-esteem, confidence and improving physical and emotional health. Over the course of a 10-week season volunteer coaches teach life-skills lesson such as handling bullies, dealing with body image and the media, making healthy decisions and contributing to the community. The program culminates in a non-competitive 5k event which gives the girls a chance to shine and an overwhelming sense of accomplishment.

All shapes, sizes and abilities are celebrated and welcome! 

Without volunteers we will not be able to run the Girls on the Run program at Haisley. All volunteers will be provided with training and lots of great perks including free or discounted registration for their daughters. If you are interested please email sarah@girlsontherunsemi.org to learn more.

For more information about Girls on the Run® log on to their website at www.girlsontherunsemi.org
