Float Building In Full Force!

Email Information from PT0

4th of July in UA is a party! If you are in town, come and be a part of the UA and Wickliffe tradition.

We are building Wickliffe’s 4th of July float! The city’s theme this year is YoU Are a Grand Old Flag and we are highlighting the planting of the US flag on the moon!

We will be meeting at the Cards house at 2588 Dorset Rd., 43221 The school is not available in the evenings and we need access to power, sinks to wash painting supplies, and restrooms for our helpers. The last meeting will be a celebration of all of our hard work and will be held at Arlington Car Care, 1897 Northwest Blvd., 43212. (This is where the float will be stored overnight.)

To build this awesome float, we will be needing supplies. In general, paint (especially gray, yellow, white, black, green, and brown, but anything extra you have may be usable – we can mix it), in addition to paint, we will need paper for the paper mache detail pieces (moon, large wolf, mountain tops). Any type of paper will work. PLEASE SAVE YOUR PAPER! WE WILL TAKE ALL KINDS OF PAPER. NEWSPAPERS AND PAPER BAGS WORK WELL.

Around the float, we will be walking, biking, riding scooters (scooters are easier when you stop and start), and pulling wagons. To “extend” the float, our kiddos can create wolf masks or costumes, we have many easy ideas! “stick puppet wolves” (think chinese dragons) are also a fun option, or maybe your child would prefer to create and carry shooting stars, and we will have balloons created to look like planets in our solar system! If you don’t want to dress as a wolf; wear a patriotic colored tshirt. As we walk it will appear our float is as large as our group – so let’s rock it – or maybe I should say walk it! Kids that help with the float will be given first choice for seating on the float or carrying their item of choice!

We are planning to blast some of the songs sent home on the CD by Mr. Warner, the kids will know the songs and be able to sing along as it plays. This way, we are certain to be heard (*smile*). We have other music which we will be playing and grooving to.

We will be singing 50 Nifty United States for the float judging! A flag routine by parents is being put together by Lisa Card. No flag corp or drill team experience necessary!

We will be working with the kids on a “dance” routine for the judging also. We will be working on that every evening this coming week from 6:30 – 8:00 at the Cards house.

There are many in our pack, please come out and show UA that Wickliffe rocks!

Our meeting schedule is as follows:

All meetings will be held at The Cards house at 2588 Dorset Rd., UA, 43221

June 30 6:30 – 8 PM

July 1 6:30-8 PM

July 2 6:30-8 PM

July 3 6:30-8 PM – Bring cookout or picnic food – bring a dish and celebrate our hard work! Held at Arlington Car Care, 1897 Northwest Blvd., 43212. (This is where the float will be stored overnight.)

If you have any questions, ideas to offer, or items to donate you can contact Lisa Card at lacard@columbus.rr.com (cell 560-3346) or Cyrus Grimes at cyrus.grimes@gmail.com.

Thanks everyone, we hope to see you soon!

Fourth of July Float information

Join us in the fun!

We are building Wickliffe’s 4th of July float! The city’s theme this year is YoU Are a Grand Old Flag and we are highlighting the planting of the US flag on the moon! To incorporate our beloved Wickliffe Wolves we have created wolves howling at the moon. HOWEVER, we are still in need of the slogan that will go around the moon. Tie it all together and send us your thoughts!

We will be meeting at the Cards house at 2588 Dorset Rd., 43221 The school is not available in the evenings and we need access to power, sinks to wash painting supplies, and restrooms for our helpers. The last meeting will be a celebration of sorts and will be held at Arlington Car Care, 1897 Northwest Blvd., 43212. (This is where the float will be stored overnight.)

Golden Star Choir- IMPORTANT Reminders!!

Golden Star Choir  — Important Reminders

Dress Rehearsal & Town Meeting & Spring Celebration:

Thursday, May 15: Dress Rehearsal, 3:00-6:00 PM; Potluck Dinner, 6:00-6:30PM ALL choir members are required to attend this rehearsal, which was announced on the rehearsal schedule in late January. We will rehearse on the risers on stage for the first and only time.

Parent volunteers will provide a potluck dinner following the rehearsal (Maria Bernon is coordinating the dinner again this year). Choir T-shirts will be distributed during the dinner. These shirts will be worn with jeans or dark colored pants/shorts and closed-toe shoes for both Friday performances.  Make sure the jeans/shorts have both front and back pockets!

Please note:  May 15th is also Field Day. This means your child will need a water bottle and an after-school snack in his/her backpack. Children will have time when the bell rings at 2:50 to eat this snack prior to beginning the rehearsal. They may bring another quick snack to eat when we take a break at the midpoint of the rehearsal. They may want a dry set of clothes, as well!

Friday, May 16: Morning/Town Meeting Performance8:30 AM.  Please plan to have your child arrive at school by 8:00 on the morning of May 16th if at all possible (or by 8:15 at the latest).  Children will take their backpacks to their classrooms, then go directly to the music room to warm-up before the Town Meeting performance. They will need to wear their Golden Star Choir T-shirts (with jeans or dark colored pants/shorts and closed-toe shoes) that morning, but bring another shirt to wear during the day to keep that choir shirt safe!  Remember, the jeans/shorts need to have both front and back pockets!

Friday, May 16: Evening/Spring Celebration Performance, 6:45 PM.  Please plan to have your child arrive at the school by 6:00 on the evening of May 16th if at all possible (or by 6:15 at the latest).  We will meet in the music room to warm-up before our final performance.  Children will need to wear their Golden Star Choir T-shirts (with jeans or dark colored pants/shorts and closed-toe shoes).  Remember, the jeans/shorts need to have both front and back pockets!  Choir members will get to attend the Spring Celebration after the performance that evening.

A Teacher Appreciation Week To Remember!!

I don’t even know where to begin. .. First, how about we thank everyone who volunteered to make this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week the BEST EVER?  As awesome Wickliffe mom Katy Britt and leader of this project tells it…

“There were at least 66 families that were involved in our Teacher Appreciation festivities in one way or another!  Yahoo!  Percy and Earl were also instrumental to helping out as well.” 

66 families people. Sixty-six!! Blood, sweat and tears I’m sure.  If you haven’t stopped by the lounge to check it out in person, you MUST!  Until then, enjoy some of these pictures…

New kitchen look!

There were also families who provided a delicious breakfast for the staff on the day of the big reveal and lunch for the teachers later in the week.  We just love seeing the deserving Wickliffe staff enjoying their new digs…

This my friends, is what family is all about!
