Check out our slide show for last year!  Big thanks to Mrs. Dailey for putting this together!

The Lion King Jr. Slide Show

All parent volunteers must have their volunteer clearances on file in the school office.  If you don't have your clearances you will not be allowed to volunteer AND YOU WON'T EVEN BE ALLOWED INTO THE BUILDING!  This is important...get a volunteer packet in the office or see the clearance documents at the bottom of this page.

Ginger Root Tea: for a Singer’s sore throat (this is the recipe that Broadway singers use!)

You need: fresh ginger root, lemon, honey, water, vegetable peeler, sharp knife, small cook pot, spoon, mug

How to make it: Use the vegetable peeler to peel the skin off the ginger root.  Then use a sharp knife to cut the giger root into small pieces (about the size of a soda bottle cap).  Put the pieces into the cook pot and add water. (The more water you add, the more tea you will have.)  Bring to a boil on the stove and let it boil for a few minutes.  (The longer it boils, the stronger your tea will be.)  Then turn off the heat and let it cool down a little so you don’t burn your tongue!
