Together we will learn about several aspects of what goes into a theatre show, and then put what we’ve discovered into action for winter and spring stage productions.
Required Textbooks and Materials:
None. A folder to keep their scripts will be provided at the top of the semester. I ask that students keep track of it for use during class— if it is lost I just ask that they provide the replacement.

Teacher Bio:
The 2022-2023 school year will be my first year with CCA! I am a graduate of MTSU where I received my BS in Theatre with a focus in theatre education and administration. I absolutely love every aspect of the creation of theatre and have experienced theatre work in many areas such as performance, admin. duties, cast management, crew work, developing new shows, and more! (But my favorite has always been working in children’s theatre!) I love to share with students the many different ways that we can all find a place to belong in the theatre, and how every personality and skill set is valuable and loved here! When I’m not being a grown up Drama Club Kid I am spending time with my big family and enjoying lots of podcasts! I love creative writing and telling absolutely everyone about all the funny stuff my two year old does!

Tuition: 24 weeks (1-hour class) – $176
Materials Fee: $ 0
Optional Lab:
Class Description:
Let your hands do the talking! Throughout these 24 weeks we will be learning many things in Sign Language class. We will learn what sign language is, why some people use it, and what a sign language interpreter is. The first thing is to start with the building blocks….the alphabet and numbers. Through the weeks more words will be added, including people, animals, food/drink, things you find around the house, colors, and many more. We will learn to form sentences/questions and have a small conversation using the signs we have learned. Also, a great way to learn signs is through music….we will learn to sign the ABC song, 1-2 Buckle My Shoe, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, The Pledge of Allegiance, and more. We may have small “quizzes” periodically containing about 20 signs. I usually bring prepackaged treats, such as Starbursts or Tootsie Rolls for the quiz….since we do not receive grades in my class. They will receive 1 treat for every 4 correct answers. Please let me know if there are any allergies, or if you prefer a different treat.
Required Textbooks and Materials:
There is no required text for this class. However, a great book to have to help practice signs is “The Joy of Signing: A Dictionary of American Signs,” Third Edition by Lottie L. Riekehof, PHD.
Homework Estimate: The only “homework” will be practicing what we have learned in class and a few fun activities to do at home.
Teacher Bio:

They will do some target building, learn about bow mechanics, and ultimately leave this class with a great understanding of what Archery is truly about.

The type can depend on your child’s size and what the bow will possibly be used for in the future. Additionally, an Archery Tab is needed to aid in shooting the bow (preferred is Bateman TC3 Three Finger Under Tab https://lancasterarchery.com/products/bateman-tc3-three-finger-under-tab ). http://www.lancasterarchery.com is a good source for finding the equipment needed.

Teacher Bio:
I have been with CCA since the start and currently teach at three other schools in the Wilson and Davidson counties. I have been given the great blessing of teaching art to students for 28 years. It is my joy to serve the Lord as a teacher and to instill in my students a love and respect for the Lord, our Creator. It is through our gift of creativity that we see His gift of creativity!
