Synopsis

This is a retelling of the Chinese folklore of a young maiden who learns that her weakened and lame father is to be called up into the army in order to fight the invading Huns. Knowing that he would never survive the war in his state, she decides to disguise herself and join in his place. Unknown to her, her ancestors are aware of this and to prevent it, they order a tiny disgraced dragon, Mushu, to join her in order to force her to abandon her plan. He agrees, but when he meets Mulan, he learns her mind cannot be changed and so decides to help her in the perilous times ahead.

Synopsis

The Children’s Literature Association named Charlotte’s Web “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and playwright Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of author E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling theatrical presentation.  The story finds the young farm pig Wilbur attempting to avoid a dire fate. Of all the barnyard creatures and human friends, Wilbur’s staunchest ally is Charlotte, a thoughtful spider who devises an intriguing plan to keep the gentle little swine out of the slaughterhouse.  As events unfold, we find that friendship, love, and sacrifice despite the cost is the central theme of Charlotte’s Web. Perhaps this theme can best be summed up at the end of the play in some of the last lines spoken between our two main characters.  When Wilbur understands that Charlotte’s life is the price he must pay to keep his own, he asks, “Why did you do all this for me?  I’ve never done anything for you.” Charlotte replies, “You have been my friend.” It is through the love and sacrifice of Charlotte that Wilbur is able to go on living, both in the beginning of the play and in its ending.  As Charlotte says, “That in itself is a tremendous thing.”

Parent Connect/Class Meetings, Sept. 11, 6-7:30p

September 11 is our school-wide Parent Connect meeting followed by the individual 8th, 9th and 12th grade class meetings.

The night will begin with a general Parent Connect meeting held in the sanctuary. This is a great opportunity for all Cresset parents to hear what is going on at Cresset and to be able to give feedback and ask questions if and when you have them. This should take no longer than 30 min and begins at 6:00pm.

Our class meetings will be discussing the year ahead and focusing on class trips, etc. These will begin after the Parent Connect meeting in the homeroom of each grade. The night will end no later than 7:30pm.

Fruit Fundraiser Contest!

Help raise money for the CCA Theater department!  We are selling delicious Florida Indian River Groves fruit.  Fruit boxes make are a nice treat to have at Christmas time! This is such a great way for us to not only support the school, but to get out and share with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. They make excellent gifts, especially for those who have everything (you can never have too much fruit, right? 😊 )

How do we take orders?
Fliers have been dispersed to the students. If by chance you have not located your copy and need another, we have additional copies available in the office or we can send another home with your child. You may collect cash or checks payable to Cresset Christian Academy. If someone would like to pay with credit card they may use the link https://www.floridaindianrivergroves.com/ecommerce/947440.  Forms and payment envelopes need to be turned in by Friday, November 3.

How and when will the fruit be delivered?
Florida Indian River Groves will deliver the fruit to us between November 26-December 16. A firmer date will be sent out closer to the picking of the ripe fruit. We ask that you come and pick up your orders. If the customer would like to have it shipped directly to them, they have the option to order at the link below and pay for the shipping.

Tell us about the contest!!!
To make this even more exciting we are having a contest for the child who sells the most in the Elementary School (K-5) and the Upper School (6-12)!! The student who sells the most in the Elementary will win a  party for their class. The prize for the Upper school student will be a Visa gift card. So let the selling begin!!!

Synopsis

Maria, a prospective nun, leaves the convent to become a governess for the seven children of a wealthy, Austrian widower who is a retired Navy Captain and a cold disciplinarian to his children. Soon, she opens the children to the wonders of life and the joy of music – and eventually softens the heart of their father and gains his love.  They marry soon afterward; however, their lives will take a dramatic turn. 1930’s Austria is about to come under the control of Germany, and the Captain may find himself drafted into the German navy and forced to fight against his own country and principles. The Captain and Maria agonize over the decision to leave their wealthy lifestyle and beloved country to seek freedom.  They worry about the trip with the children across the high mountains.  Maria’s Mother Abbess of the convent gives a final word from the Lord before they run for their lives: “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12
