STAFF MEMO
April 20, 2015
 
In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. 
Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you,
and some will teach you. 
But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring
out the best in you. 
They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it’s worth it.

  • Admiral Theatre Summer Camp
    The Admiral Theatre in Bremerton, is giving children and young adults the opportunity to be part of an exciting two week summer theatre camp for 4-18 year olds that offers musical theatre workshops in acting, singing and dance.  This year’s summer theatre camp will culminate in live performance musical theatre presentations that are bound to excite.  Our theatre camp workshops are a great way to spend two weeks of summer but they also help to build confidence, self-esteem as well as stage and learning skills that will not be forgotten. 
     

    In just two weeks, students experience the discipline of learning lines, songs and dance routines, discover their own individual talents and learn team spirit by working together. It’s hard work but great fun and a wonderful way to spend two weeks in summer!

     

    Workshops are taught by experienced teaching artists with professional and academic backgrounds as performers, choreographers, directors and musicians.  The 2015 Admiral Theatre Summer Camp is open to anyone from 4 to 18 years old who is interested in theatre and performing arts. There is no pressure of an audition as enthusiasm and commitment are all that’s needed!  

     

    Camp Dates are August 11-22, 2015

    4-6 year olds attend from 9am to 1pm
    7-18 year olds attend from 9am to 4pm 

    2015 Summer camp shows to be performed by students will be:
    Lemonade!

  • Franklin

      
      
    This is Franklin
    Franklin is a Coton de Tulear (Coton means cotton in French) and is a "Therapy Dog" at Kitsap Lake Elementary School. This breed is considered to be hypo-allergenic, non-shedding and minimal dander, and known to have a temperament of being happy-go-lucky, affectionate, intelligent, lively, playful, trainable, and charming.

     

    Franklin Franklin is 10 months old, and at one year old Franklin will test for his Therapy Dog Certification. He currently attends obedience school as well as Kitsap Lake Elementary? His goal is to become certificated so he can help staff and students who may be having a difficult time. 

    Proud parents Scott and Suzanne Wisenburg are delighted to have Franklin join their family. (As is KLE!)

     

    If Franklin is at my desk I notice that people just can't walk by without getting or giving him a pet and greeting! Then they walk away smiling :) He's pretty darn cute!

     

    Thanks to Terri Beliveau for sharing!
