A good reminder copied from the Nottingham Listserv…
Since MLK Day was just celebrated this past Monday, a reminder about this essay contest honoring his legacy seemed appropriate. Deadline to enter is this Friday, January 20th.
From Bennie Williams at LeMoyne College –
“…For the second consecutive year, the Office of Multicultural Affairs will be sponsoring an essay contest about the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. All participants will be recognized and winners will be announced at our MLK Convocation on Thursday, January 26, 2017.
Please find attached the directions for the essay contest. Note that there are 3 divisions (Elementary, Middle, and High School). Please use the directions that are pertinent to your students. All essays should be submitted to myself by Friday, January 20, 2017.
We hope you are able to participate in the essay contest this year. Thank you for your time. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.”

The All-Night Playwrights performance is tonight, Saturday, January 14th at 7pm.
Sent from my iPhone
I am forwarding the message below from Nottingham to let you know about this great tradition, but also to let you know the performance is tonight at 7pm and is open to all. Might work best for adults and mature middle schoolers but use your own judgment.
Our annual Nottingham High School’s All-Night Playwrights’ performance is tomorrow, January 14th, at 7:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium.
What is All-Night Playwrights? It is a student written, student acted/directed/ tech supported event of usually a half-dozen or so plays, written this evening (and throughout the night and early morning hours) by Nottingham students. As the sun comes up, our exhausted playwrights go home, and are replaced by a fresh-faced crop of new faces busily acting, directing, and providing tech support to those plays just written.
Our talented students never fail to impress, as the results are often profound, inspiring, quirky, and often sometimes hilarious. Great entertainment at NO COST (although donations are always welcome).
We hope to see you there!

From Kristin Esposito…
Yesterday your child was given a handout indicating basic costume items that they will need to secure by Tuesday, January 17th. Handout attached. Please send the items in a plastic bag labeled with your child’s name on it. It is also preferable that you also label the tags of the clothing items with your child’s name. Please make sure the items are free from words/logos/pictures and are items that you don’t mind being altered slightly. . I am collecting these items from Mrs. Wilson to build costuming in the upcoming weeks, so it is imperative that your child bring them in no later than Tuesday, January 17th. Costuming for this play will be very involved so your help with this is greatly appreciated. If you have difficulty acquiring a specific item, please let Mrs. Wilson know. Thank you for your continued support of the arts at Ed Smith. Regards, Kristin Esposito
I would like to start a team for this ! I was curious if we have any parents that would like help and facilitate a Mini-Academy & if we have any students that would like to participate.
If your child would like to participate please email me with your child’s name and grade level.
If you would like to volunteer to run a Mini-Academy, let me know the times and dates you are available after school. Thanks!
