Make Plans to Attend the Chicken's Ball Variety Show Fundraiser
80 years ago, the show raised milk money for San Carlos students. Now, money raised specifically supports art and music supplies in our schools. For example, Mariposa staff and students now have a beautiful mural to brighten the halls because of the money raised at the last Chickens' Ball. Tierra Linda students gained a ceramics class, supplied with clay and glaze. How much can we raise for our students this time? The goal is to raise over $40K to continue to support our programs.The more money we raise, the more we give back to our students.
Gather your friends and family and come cheer on your community. Tickets are on sale now for our 7 shows! Evening and matinee performances are on March 13-15, March 20-22. https://www.chickensball.org/buy-tickets
Join Us for the Annual SCSD Musical, Jan. 23-26
True to the original Footloose story about a Chicago teen who discovers that dancing is outlawed in the small town he's just moved to, Getting to Know FOOTLOOSE is a shorter, family-friendly version of the original hit movie. You'll enjoy all the popular dance tunes, including "Let's Hear It for the Boy," the hit Footloose theme, "Holding Out for a Hero," and ‘"Almost Paradise." The annual school district musical is always a sell-out, and everyone loves the exhilerating music and dancing in Footloose, so reserve your seats early.
