→ Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon ←

Richmond School is back at it again with The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon! This year they did an insane performance of all 209 fairytales of The Brothers Grimm fit into 2½ hours. The process was fun and crazy including lots of games, directions, running, and most of all screaming. The whole cast was very enthusiastic throughout the whole performance. The  play was very well directed by the one and only Amy Brentano who had been doing the plays here for years. Although she had taken a break and left for three or so years to go to BCD, she eventually came back to the school in convenience of her children having similar break times between high school and middle school. The process began deep into December when they had auditions and then their first rehearsal right before the holiday break. The play opened on February 10th and continued on to have a matinee and a night show on Saturday. Overall, the play was wonderful and exciting with much audience participation, and we all hope that Amy will come back next year!

Voting With 1st Grade On The New School Snack!

On November 4 Cassidy and Ava, went down to the 1st grade to see what they were doing. We soon found out that were voting! Yes yes we know that 1st graders are a little young to vote so with the election however they were voting on the new school snack! The choices were all so good but the results clearly pointed on the S'mores Brownies. We will have this brownie on January 1st! I think it is safe to say that all the kids are very excited for January to try the new snack for the first time.
