Volunteers Needed!!!

Hello Quest Academy parents! I know that it is extremely tough to start getting into the school groove again, believe me I know!! I am having a difficult time staffing this first book fair. Back to school night is not too empty, but the other days (Monday, August 15th - Wednesday, August 17th) are pretty empty. I am on vacation right now, but am leaving to Washington DC on Tuesday and will not be back until right up to Tuesday before the back to school night. I would really like to be able to get the fair staffed over the next few days before I leave. I hope that everyone can take a look at their calendars and see if you can help us out. Please, please, I'm begging you! Just kidding, LOL. Thanks for all the hours you did last school year!! They were so appreciated!! Thank you so much, Mary Del Toro

Talent Show

We are looking for students that would like to share their
talents with the other students.
On January 28th, 2011 there will be a Talent Show at the
Students will be able to sign up on Thursday January 13th,
and Friday, January 14th after school in the lobby
from 3:00 to 3:30.When they sign up they will be given a
wristband with a number on it.
On the 18th there will be a random drawing of 40 numbers.
The 40 students with the numbers drawn will be the ones
participating in the talent show assembly on January 28th.
We know this activity is one that many students will want
to participate in, and because of time we have to put a
limit on the number of students performing.
If your student is one of the 40 chosen we will be holding
a dress rehearsal on Friday, January 21st after school.
Also, Please know that each performance will be limited to
2 minutes.
We are excited to see the talented students at Quest!
Thanks, Excellence in Education Committee

Info on Art Show and Focus on the Arts Contest

There has been some confusion with the Art Show and Dinner vs. the Focus on the Arts Contest. These are two seperate events.

  • For the Art Show and Dinner Every student is participating. They have produced an art piece using Technology in class. These will be displayed in the classrooms on Nov. 17th along with the Dinner. Parents and other family members are invited to come see what everyone has created. There will be a winner from each class whose are will be auctioned that night too. Tickets for the Dinner are on sale before and after school tomorrow and Friday only. They are $6.00 per person.
  • The Focus on the Arts Contest is an individual contest to be done at home much like a Reflections or Inspirations Contest. These will be displayed only at the Art Show and they are due this Friday Nov. 12th. Winners will be announced early in December at an assembly and parents will be notified if their child wins so they can attend the assembly.
We are sorry for the confusion and hope to remedy this next year with different timing and different names.
