SAA was well represented yesterday at the Illinois Grade School Music Association Solo and Ensemble Festival (IGSMA). Eighteen of our gifted students contributed to bringing home a combined 20 medals. Please congratulate the students on their phenomenal efforts! An extra special shout out to Mrs. Weber for providing piano accompaniment for 12 of the acts. It was an incredibly rigorous day for her as many of the students took on difficult music that she spent countless hours practicing on her own time. Our participation was strongly noted as we rivaled many of our public school counterparts who have strong music programs, and we had 18 more entries than the next independent school.
Think of a wonderful thought... Peter Pan will be flying to SAA this weekend! Over 40 cast and crew members will be performing in this musical tonight (Friday, April 8th) at 7:00pm and tomorrow (Saturday, April 9th) at 4:00pm. Come and think some happy thoughts with Peter Pan and the talented students of SAA. See you there!
A huge THANK YOU goes out to the many talented students and parents who helped build and paint the sets for Seussical the Musical, Jr. throughout the past few weeks. The 4th, 5th, and 6th graders will make your favorite Dr. Seuss characters come to life in Seussical the Musical, Jr. and the timing couldn't be better with the celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday this week. Please be sure to mark your calendar for one of the upcoming performances. Shows are scheduled for Friday, March 6th at 7:00pm and Saturday, March 7th at 4:00pm.
A great time was had by all at the SAA Ice Skating Party this weekend! The Family & School Association organizes this yearly event for families and classmates to mix and mingle outside of school.
