Aladdin Jr. Auditions
Mr. Bragg hopes that you will audition for the fall musical, Aladdin Jr. Auditions will be September 8 or 9 from 4—7 pm. Callbacks will be held on September 11 from 4:00—7:00 p.m.! All students are welcome to audition. The auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and a vocal audition. Auditioners should prepare a verse and chorus of a song. It will be expected that each student provide an accompaniment cd. Please make sure accompaniment does NOT have vocalists singing on it. See Mr. Bragg's website for additional information! See you at audition.
Raise Tech-Smart Kids
The average American child between the ages of 8 and 18 spends 53 hours per week with media and technology outside of school. This means that kids spend more time online, with their phones, watching TV, or playing video games than they do in school or with their parents.
Come experience a Common Sense Media presentation about the technology landscape and your kids' media use. Heather Van Looy, River Trail's Instructional Technology Specialist, will guide you through a presentation about raising tech-smart kids using Nearpod. Nearpod is a classroom technology tool that some of your students may utilize as a part of River Trail's BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) initiative. Experience what technology integration has to offer, while learning more about a subject that is important to you as a parent.
Join us on September 18th, 6:30 p.m. or September 19th, 9:00 a.m. in the River Trail Middle School cafeteria.
