Palisades Charter High School presented a live performance of its spring musical, “First Date,” on an outdoor stage—marking the last performance for many graduating seniors.
“It is so exciting to see the students return to the stage after such a long absence during the pandemic,” wrote parent Sara Essner. “It is an amazing feat to have been able to learn lines, design the set and choreograph the performance in under four weeks. This is a credit to Cheri and Monique, and the talented students.”
Groza Learning Center recently hosted a Youth Entrepreneurial Competition where students in fourth through 10th grade competed with their business ideas to earn $200, $100 or $50 to use toward their business start-up cost.
“Each participant had prepared a detailed business plan for their current or potential business,” Groza Director Tatyana Yukhtman shared. “These business plans include financials, market analysis, advertising, executive summary and more.”
Each student had a five-minute time slot to present their business using PowerPoint slides to a panel of judges, who also gave feedback to participants on their ideas.
Leonardo “Leo” Potts-Landry was born at 2:48 p.m. on May 26 to Robin Potts and Mark Landry of Via Bluffs. At press time, his likes include eating, sleeping and more eating. His dislikes are being woken up from a nap, anything cold and having his toes licked by his long-haired dachshund “sister,” Obi. Robin and Mark are looking forward to raising Leo as a Palisadian.
