Help Needed with Spring Play

The 3rd-5th grade spring play is coming up April 24th, and the actors and directors need our support! Mrs. Baldwin needs skirt hangers and plastic bins – if you have any you don’t need and can donate, please bring them to the parent workroom. They also need an additional videographer, help breaking down the set and stage on April 15th, and help with other things like costume changes backstage, concessions, etc. Please open this Google doc to see what is needed, and sign up if you can help! If you are helping the night of a performance, please plan to be at the school an hour and a half prior to the performance (Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7 pm, Sunday performance begins at 2:30 pm).

You’re Invited: Strategic Planning Sessions

The public is invited to attend one of two strategic planning sessions that will be hosted in the ACS Board room at 85 Mountain Street on Thursday, April 9th and on Thursday, April 16th. Each of these interactive events will last from 6 until 7 PM. We will provide a 15-minute update on our plans and progress to date as we create a new strategic plan to guide our district over the next couple of years. We will then divide into small working groups to help facilitate the capture of your input and ideas.  Your feedback is valued! Please join us on either April 9th or April 16th and donate an hour of your time to share your hopes and dreams for Asheville City Schools and the 4,300+ children we serve.
