Virtual Parent Info Night, Childcare Option, Phoebe’s Got Talent, Home Run Reader

Virtual Parent Information Night
Don’t forget about our parent information night tomorrow, Monday, March 15th at 5:30pm to discuss learning options and re-opening plans.  

Thank you to all of those families that have had the opportunity to fill out our  learning options survey.  If after tomorrow night’s meeting you decide to choose a different learning option for your child or your family has specific needs that I need to be aware of, please contact me at  michelle-pechette@scusd.edu The survey closes on March 17th. 

Childcare Option
To support families our front office staff has been actively seeking after-school child care options for families.  One option that has come available is Dragon Fire Martial Arts.  They will be offering after school child care for 1st – 6th grade students.  Please contact Dragon Fire directly if you have questions or are interested in signing up.  Their phone number is 916-494-1220.

Phoebe’s Got Talent is back!  
Dust off your dancing shoes, shine up those instruments, and get ready because you just might be the star of our first ever virtual talent show!  Phoebe’s Got Talent – “Live” From Home is officially underway.  While we will miss seeing everyone at an in-person event, the “stage” is open for our talented dragons to upload their 1-2 minute video. The top 20 acts will be selected and featured in the 2021 virtual show going “live” on April 29 th at 6 pm.

Anything that would normally be done on stage is eligible for consideration.  Although we know there are millions of talents that our students show every day at home, on the field, in the pool and throughout our community, this will still be a show and our organizers are looking for performances like those that Phoebe’s Got Talent traditionally features. 

Important note regarding air rock: For everyone’s safety, group air rock acts are of course welcome, however, groups must perform together but apart. In-person group air rock acts unfortunately do not meet our safety requirements, but it works great to film each group member’s personal segment and create one fun air rock video! Please get in touch with PGT organizers for clarification or examples of how to do this.

If you are interested in submitting a video of your awesome talents, please fill out the Google Form here no later than March 26 th. We will contact you soon after if we have any questions regarding your act…

Videos will need to be uploaded by April 13th which will allow us plenty of time to edit the final show.  We will provide all of the upload details and instructions before the deadline!

Feel free to email organizers with any questions or clarifications anytime at  phoebetalentshow@gmail.com We can’t wait for the show!
