Davidson Elementary School will host a bingo fundraiser on Friday night. Meanwhile, the actors of W.A. Hough High School are performing their fall theater production “Snow Angel” Thursday to Saturday. And deadlines are approaching for the “Reflections” art contest at several schools. Also in this column, photos from last weekend’s Autumn Blast at Lake Norman Christian School.
DAVIDSON ELEMENTARY BINGO NIGHT
Students and their families are invited to the Davidson Elementary School gym on Friday, Nov. 2, for a night of bingo, raffles, and plenty of prizes.
Players’ first bingo card is free; additional cards will be $1.00 each. There will be over 30 raffle prizes available, including a signed DeAngelo Williams jersey, Panthers and Davidson College basketball tickets, and gift certificates from restaurants in Davidson, Cornelius and Huntersville. Raffle tickets are $1.00 each.
The event is from 6-8pm at the school, 635 South St. Bingo begins at 6:30. Popcorn and water will be available.
‘SNOW ANGEL’ AT HOUGH
W.A. Hough High School Theater presents David Lindsay-Abaire’s play “Snow Angel” on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1-3, at the school, 12420 Bailey Road in Cornelius.
Here’s the story: During the biggest blizzard to hit the sleepy town of Deerpoint, Vermont, a group of teens come across a mysterious girl named Eva. No one knows who she is or where she came from. But as the snow continues to fall, the teens search for the truth, argue, laugh, and try to work together to get Eva back to where she came from.
At times both funny and eerie, “Snow Angel” is a story about finding the truth, finding friendship, and finding oneself.
Shows are at 7 o’clock each evening in the Hough auditorium, and tickets are $7 at the door.
“REFLECTIONS” ART PROGRAM RETURNS
Deadlines are nearing at several area schools to submit entries for the 2012 “Reflections” contest. “Reflections” is a National PTA program that encourages students to create an original work of art around a common theme. This year’s theme is “The Magic of a Moment.”
Art categories include Photography, Literature, Visual Arts, Music Composition, Dance Choreography, and Film Production. Winners receive recognition and prizes from their school and may be sent on to the District, State, and National levels of competition.
The deadline for entries at Bailey Middle School is Nov. 9. Here is a link for more info at Bailey.
Hough High’s deadline for “Reflections” entries is Nov. 8. More info from Hough is on the school website.
Check with other school PTAs for details on deadlines there.
