in recreational activities. For more information please contact your school principal or Michael Curnes at the

                              Your children’s theatre instructor is Treena Decker, who is an actress with 18 years of
                              theatre experience both on and off stage. She enjoys working with children to discover
                              the joys of using basic improvisation techniques to create theatre. Treena’s classes will
                              focus on the art of telling stories within a scene. Theatre is an excellent way for children to
                              express themselves in a safe environment and it helps to build self esteem! Treena looks
                              forward to introducing children to the magical world of the theatre!
                              Please have your child come prepared with a bottle of water and loose clothing.
