Don’t forget the Character Day Parade on Wednesday, October 31st. The parade will begin as soon as announcements are over and we get organized (around 8 a.m. or so). Your child will need to bring the book or story their character is based on and carry it in the parade. You are invited to join and watch the parade in the hallways, before everyone gathers in the gym where staff members will dramatize a few favorite works of literature for the student body. No scary characters or weapons, please!
Write A Check Campaign Begins Nov. 5
Did your child enjoy Nana Puddin’s program at MKB a couple of weeks ago? Did you know that our PTO used fundraising money from last year to fund this special program?
Write-A-Check Campaign is Mockingbird’s Fall Fundraiser. Instead of asking you and your children to sell products like wrapping paper, candy, and magazines, we ask you to simply write a check. This campaign will run from Monday, November 5- Friday, November 16.Look for details in the coming weeks on how you can support our amazing school!
CHS Theatre Presents "All Shook Up"
Do you feel like laughing and dancing? All staff and students are invited to attend Coppell High School Theatre’s fall musical, “All Shook Up” which opens this weekend and continues next weekend! Showcasing the songs of Elvis Presley and inspired by Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” it is a large-scale production famous for its vivid colors, bold dance numbers and hip-swiveling jukebox tunes. This hilarious musical tells the story of Chad, a roustabout who arrives in a dreary town to shake things up. Upon his arrival, he shows the people the power of love and music; and, soon enough, love, dancing, and music abound. Student tickets are on sale through the Coppell High School Theatre website for $10, or they may be purchased at the door for $12. Remember that all CISD employees get in free! Friday and Saturday night shows are at 7:30 with Sunday matinees at 2:30. It will have you jumping out of your blue suede shoes!
Online pricing: Students/seniors: $10.00 -- General Admission: $12.50 -- Reserved Seating: $16.50 -- CISD Employees: Free with ID badge at door, based on availability
All ticket prices will raise $2.00/each at the door -- buy online to save!
