    CharlotteLIVE! Has invited the students of Monroe Middle School to attend the workshop and production for the Broadway musical “RAGTIME”. This historical tale occurred in the early 1920’s and it carries a powerful message about racism in America.

Permission forms are available from Mr. Holloway and the trip is open to all students from all grade levels, although drama, dance, and chorus students will be considered first.
    Money and permission forms will need to be returned by MONDAY, November 16th. Please see Mr. Holloway if you have any questions.

    “This year’s Theme is “Air Sports in Harmony with Nature.” The beauty of the earth is never clearer than when seen from the air. From above, the fullness of nature is seen in ways unknowable from the ground. Each flight provides new insights into how land, water, animals, and people share their environments.” I encourage you all to think about submitting an entry. You will want to capture the connection between the land and the air, while creating a work of art that shows air sports and nature in harmony!

    “All children who live in or attend school in North Carolina are invited to submit their interpretations of this year’s theme. The top three entries in each age group will be forwarded to Washington, DC to be judged in the national competition. The artwork of the national winners will be sent to Switzerland to compete in the international competition.”

    All entries are due to Mrs. LaRosa by December 5th 2015. I am available to aid and assist in idea prep and overall design layout, materials usage and any other questions you may have. You do not have to be in my art class at the present time to participate or receive my assistance. All you need is the desire and creative energy with a positive attitude.
