Hello, parents and guardians!

This year, in an effort to strengthen our communication between school and home, we are opening Parent Access in our learning management system, Schoology.

Below is a linked document which explains how to access your account using either the website or the mobile app. You will need your Home Access Center username and password, which will also serve as your Schoology username and password.

CB Tickets Now on Sale Poster

The wait is finally over. The Delcastle Drama Club will be presenting the musical You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown on May 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2017. It is the first musical to hit the Delcastle stage since the theatre department performed Grease in 1997!

A program note says that the time of the action is “an average day in the life of Charlie Brown.” It really is just that, a day made up of little moments picked from all the days of Charlie Brown, from Valentine’s Day to the baseball season, from wild optimism to utter despair, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening.

We hope you will join us for this monumental show. It is surely a family-friendly production, so bring the kids!

Tickets are available for purchase @ delcastle.ludustickets.com. Tickets purchased online are $8 for adults, $6 for students, and $3 for children under 12. When you buy online, you will be able to reserve your seat! Tickets will also be sold at the door prices at the door are ($15/adults, $10/students, $5/children under 12).

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, starring Ryan Nagowski (’17) as Charlie Brown, Amanda Santiago (’17) as Lucy, Ziayre Ruff (’19) as Schroeder, Trey Bruton (’18) as Linus, Piper Edge (’18) as Sally Brown, Victoria McMahon (’20) as Snoopy. Also starring Alexa Archer (’19) as Woodstock, Leigh Bauder (’17) as Peppermint Patty, Brielle Stephens (’19) as Frieda, Christina Colatriano (’19) as Marci, Rob Williams (’19) as Franklin, and Kaitlyn Negron (’20) as The Little Red-Haired Girl.

Congratulations

Congratulations

Congratulations to the 2017-18 Teacher of the Year Mrs. Lisa Henderson. Mrs. Henderson fondly remembers many of her own teachers because of what they did for her self-confidence inside and outside the classroom. The content is not what she recalls; instead, the firm voice yet loving heart, the rigor, the kindness and interest shown, the high expectations, and the time for personal reflection. Mrs. Henderson is proud to be a composite of the educators who touched her life, and hopes that years from now her students too will remember how she encouraged them to be their better selves. Thanks for all that you do Mrs. Henderson!
