LENTEN CHALLENGE

NTT has put together a Lenten Challenge that will be coming home today.  We wanted to find a way to give the children ideas for screen free activities and reinforce screen free activities in a positive way. And even more importantly we want to help parents realize all of the fun ideas their kids can do without screens! Unfortunately using screens is way too easy and convenient, and parents are forgetting to encourage all of the screen-free fun their kids can have.  We hope this Lenten challenge will lead families to be little more intentional with their time and find many fun family activities.  Students will earn a reward for turning in completed challenge sheets and the class with the most sheets turned in will get an ice cream party.

ST. PAUL’S PLAYERS PRESENTS:

The Little Mermaid JR.

Thursday, March 12th 1:00PM and 7:00PM

Bob Martin Theater (St. Paul’s School Gym)

Admission: $5.00

In a magical kingdom fathoms below, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above. But first, she’ll have to defy her father King Triton, to make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince Prince Eric that she’s the girl with the enchanting voice.

 

All of your favorite characters are here in the stage adaptation of the Disney hit film. Filled with magic, music, and fun, audiences’ spirits will soar with excitement. Most of all, the tuneful, Academy award- winning score with songs including “Part of Your World” and “Under the Sea” will certainly make this musical a favorite for many years to come!
