Ms. Herndon needs a few volunteers for the Young Choreographers' Showcase. I'm offering NHSDA hours, the chance to see the show and my eternal gratitude. Students, if you want to volunteer you cannot already be involved in the YCS as a dancer. You also need to be available for both the dress rehearsal Nov. 9th 3:45-5:30p and show Nov. 10th (Show starts at 7p, you'd be called at 6p). Also, not at all opposed to parent volunteers but I'll give first shot to students.
If you're interested please shoot me a message via Jupitergrades or email me at Kim.Herndon@jefferson.kyschools.us. and I'll give you the details.
You're Invited! Limited Seating!
