With the Easter weekend here, normally it would be a quiet weekend for us in the Auditorium. But, this weekend, we are going to be very busy as we welcome Antioch Baptist Church for their Easter Sunday services at 9:00 and 10:30 AM. The reason why they are having their services with us is they have been having services in their activities center with the expansion of their worship facility. We are very happy to accommodate them and welcome them. Please leave the Handicapped parking spaces for those who need them and do not park in the circle. If you need to drop off people in the circle and then park, you are more than welcome to do that.
After we are completed with that, then we welcome Theodore Jones Elementary 1st and 2nd Graders for their program on Tuesday Night. Starting time is 7:00 PM. Doors for the general public will not open until 6:45 PM. This was done at the request of the school so they could get the children into the building first and make sure they are settled down and ready for a great program. The program will be directed by the school's new Music Specialist Allyce Johnson. The program is free and open to the public.
We will have a couple of closed events and then it will be time to get ready for the Disney musical "Beauty and the Beast". We are very excited to have this classic on our stage and once tickets go on sale, they will probably go fast.
Have a great weekend and don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook and "Follow" us on Twitter.
It is hard to believe that in less than 3 months, we will be on vacation and enjoying summertime. In the remaining three months, we are going to be very busy. Tonight, we have a wonderful program featuring the Julia Lee Moore 3rd and 4th Grade Students. The title of the program is "Americans All--A Musical Celebration of America's Multicultural Heritage" by Cheryl Lavender. Music
Specialist Bryan Cole and his students have put together a great program which will conclude with one our own personal favorite songs, "American Tears" written by well known children's music author Teresa Jennings. The program will start at 6:30 PM and you are invited to attend.
After we come back from Spring Break, we will have our final three elementary programs for the year, Antioch Baptist Church will be with us on Easter Sunday, our Music Department will be getting ready for Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", and there will be the normal load of music concerts, awards programs, CAEC Graduation and Dance Recitals before we close out for the summer on Saturday, June 8th. Be watching the home page for information on all the upcoming programs and also for "Beauty and the Beast" tickets..
We have had a lot of fun the last two days with the students at Marguerite Vann Elementary when they have their Second, Third and Fourth Grade Music Program tonight at 6:30 PM. Music Specialist Jana Hefner has prepared her kids well and it is going to be a lot of fun. Join us in the Auditorium. Doors open at 6.
We would like to extend congratulations to all the students who were inducted as new members of the Conway High School Chapter of the National Beta Club. We also would like to thank their sponsors Mr. Chad Terrell and Mrs. Carol Clark for all their help.
