The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers uninsured children up to age 19. With more than 111,000 uninsured children in Pennsylvania, this is great news for families! CHIP provides quality, comprehensive health insurance for routine doctor visits, prescriptions, dental, eye care, eyeglasses, mental health, and much more. CHIP covers uninsured kids who are not eligible for Medical Assistance. For most families, CHIP is free; for others, it is low cost.
A flyer and other resources can be found on the CHIP website at www.CHIPcoversPAkids.com, under CHIP Resources.
The Dock Theater Department is excited to officially announce THE SOUND OF MUSIC as the 2018 grades 9-12 fall musical! This Rodgers & Hammerstein collaboration is beloved around the world, and their work occupies a special place in the musical theater canon.
The scripts are in; the production team is assembled. What we need now are students for the cast and crew! (And thousands of volunteer hours during 10 weeks of very hard work....)
Students - Mr. Derstine and I will hold a "Sing Through" 8/22 at 3:00 pm in the Longacre Theater. This is a great chance to hear the music, ask some questions, and meet the directors. Audition materials, contracts and rehearsal schedules will be available. (If you can't make it, you can pick up these materials once school starts in Mrs. Kennel's room or on Schoology.)
This year, auditions will be held over two weeks to accommodate the need to cast from our EC-8 campus as well the high school. See times and dates below. Please arrive with your signed contract including all rehearsal conflicts. A list of students needed at the Call Back Audition will be posted to Schoology on Friday, August 31. The final cast list will be posted at the end of the school day, Friday September 7.
All auditions will take place in Longacre Theater on the Grades 9-12 Campus.
So mark your calendars one and all! Performances are 7:00 p.m. November 8, 9, and 10. We look forward to sharing this classic story with you once again—or perhaps for the very first time!

Rod Derstine, Musical Director
