Dear Elementary/Academy Families, April 30, 2018

The Elementary/Academy talent show will be in the University School gym on Wednesday, May 30th this year. More specific details on timing will follow as we get a count on how many children want to participate. Possible acts are playing a musical instrument, dancing, gymnastics, martial arts, poetry recitation, magic tricks, telling jokes, or singing. Please discuss this with your child(ren) and help them decide what would be an appropriate presentation. Each act should be no longer than 2 minutes and should be well-rehearsed.

Please time your act and be prepared to perform it in class by May 21st. We would like for no one to be in more than one act. Students will sign up with Ms. Ross and discuss specific performance needs.

Please fill out the  Talent Show Letter/Participant Form  and return to Ms. Ross no later than May 21st so that we can plan for enough time for everyone who wants to perform.

Sincerely,

Allyson Ross

Ms. Allyson Ross - University School Teacher of the Year Award
Congratulations to Ms. Allyson Ross who received this year's University School Teacher of the Year (Most Innovative Teacher) Award.

Ms. Allyson Ross brings music and song to the faculty, staff, and students of University School. Her love of music and theater is demonstrated daily in her work with the students. She brings out the best in students.

The choir and theater students have been hard at work all year long on different performances. She puts countless hours into the program (after school and on weekends) and her positive attitude has spread to the students as evidenced by increased enrollments in the theater program.

What a joy it is to walk into the building in the early morning and hear the sounds of the choir singing. It is an uplifting way to begin the day for faculty and students. The growth of her students has been simply amazing.

She has also been instrumental in helping our school become more "green" in words and in actions. She took the initiative to write a grant that provided us with reusable tableware to use. Her work towards getting the drinking fountain that fills water bottles shows her commitment to recycling and the environment.

The University School Chorus, pictured below, performed at the Clemmer College of Education Awards Ceremony.

Congratulations, Ms. Ross!
