Music & Lyrics by Cole Porter Original Book by Guy Bolton, P.G. Wodehouse, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse New Book by Timothy Crouse and John Weidman The age-old tale of Boy-Meets-Girl and the complications which ensue intrigue every audience, and no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES. This show is an amusing story wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s magical scores including the songs It’s De-Lovely, Friendship, I Get A Kick Out Of You, All Through The Night, Anything Goes, You’re The Top and Blow, Gabriel, Blow. It’s a wonder that all the romances are sorted out and disaster is averted aboard the magical ship where ANYTHING GOES!

Other Useful Info.

 

Where is Junior Prom?

Junior Prom is at “The Italian Center,” 1620 Newfield Avenue, Stamford.

What date and time is Junior Prom?

Junior Prom is Friday, May 20th. Doors open at 7:00PM for check-in/cocktail hour. All guests must arrive by 8:30PM. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER AFTER 8:30PM. If you have a sports or job-related reason for why you will arrive after 8:30PM, you must include it on page 3. Junior Prom ends at midnight. NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO LEAVE until at least10:30PM.

What do I need to bring to prom?

An appetite – a delicious buffet dinner will be served. A pleasant attitude – prom is a privilege, not a right, and anyone acting rudely or antagonistically will be sent home. YOUR SOBER SELF – anyone who appears to be under the influence of anything other than “a good time” will have their parent or guardian called, be picked up by their parent or guardian, and subject to further disciplinary measures. And a pair of comfy shoes to change in to – everyone takes off their “fancy prom shoes” eventually, and it’s gross when those same folks proceed to go in and out of the bathrooms with no footwear on.

EVERYONE ATTENDING JUNIOR PROM – GUESTS INCLUDED – MUST BRING A PHOTO ID.

Anything else I should know? Yes! Review the RULES in the attached Prom Contract, or come pick up a printed copy!

Any questions, please let me know.

A letter has been mailed home to welcome you to the PowerSchool Parent Portal!

Studies have shown that parental engagement in a child’s education is the single most important factor in student achievement.  As part of Stamford Public Schools continued effort to improve communication and engagement with our families, we are happy to let you know that we are launching our PowerSchool Parent Portal for all middle school and high school parents beginning on November 20, 2014.

Policy Reminders

Absences:
After a student returns from any absence they are to report to Mr. Pereira's office (located in the 100s, across from Room 103) between 7:00 and 7:20am.
 
Mr. Pereira will review their absence documentation (doctor’s note, etc.) and issue them a slip to present - with their note - to their teachers. Students must have each teacher sign the slip on the appropriate line, in order to document the rationale behind the absence. At the end of the day, the student is responsible for returning the slip (with all signatures) and documentation to a mailbox in the main office designated for this purpose.
 
NOTE: Absence documentation should come in the form of a note (parental, doctor, court summons - as examples) and within 2 school days (48 hours) of the student's return to school. Phone calls, while appreciated, will not count towards documentation. If you had emailed your child's teachers and/or guidance counselor please print out the email and have your child bring that to Mr. Pereira.
 
Early Dismissal: 

If there is a need for your child to leave school early, please send in a note (including a morning telephone number to confirm dismissal) with your child. They will be issued a yellow dismissal pass from class and you can meet your child in the office. Students should report to the main office before the warning bell for Block 1 to get the dismissal approved. We are hoping to greatly decrease the classroom interruptions that occur when we do not follow this procedure.
