Cast/Crew Meal for Millie

We will provide lunch for all cast/crew between shows on Saturday, May 7th. This is a potluck meal and we ask that all families either contribute food, drink, paper products OR make a monetary donation to pay for the sandwiches. We welcome any and all you are willing to contribute! Use this link to indicate what you are planning to bring or donate.

Please drop off your items to the school cafeteria between 3:00 – 4:30. We will not have access to the kitchen, so please do all prep work at home. Call time is 1:00 and we would prefer you wait to send in the food items until 3:00. If that’s not possible, let us know and we can accommodate. Please send any monetary donations in an envelope marked MEAL and give to one of the directors. Money is needed ahead of time to purchase the sandwiches. If you have any questions, please contact Jonna Snyder.

Addressing Our Community’s Loss

Dear “Millie” Parents:

I wanted to reach out to the parents of “Millie” company members after hearing of the death of Jefferson student, Daniel Philips.

I did not know Danny, but I understand that he was good friends with many in our cast and that many of your children may be, deeply affected by this loss.

With Connection Special next week and the musical play moving into critical rehearsals, this could be a stressful time for many under the best of circumstances. I will prepare myself, as best as I can, to facilitate Millie rehearsals with care to what the students need in the coming days.

I made rehearsal tonight optional. Many chose to take the night off. I’m glad they were taking the time to grieve with those they needed to be with. To my surprise, many came to rehearsal and worked with good focus and spirit. They did great. A few students showed up just to hang out. There was a wonderful sense of support.

As a parent, please feel free to contact me with any particular concerns you feel I may need to be aware of regarding how your son or daughter is coping. I will be happy do what I can to make the next several weeks as productive and positive an experience for our Millie Company.

Thank you.

Suzanne Graff Gomes
