Casey Carle's BubblemMania... Comedy with a Drip!
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Casey Carle's: Bubble mania!

Saturday, February 24th, 12:00 PM, Perfect for ages 5+.

An extremely unique program fusing high energy entertainment, highly crafted showmanship and artistic achievement, "BubbleMania: Comedy... with a Drip!" is loaded with in-the-moment improvisation & quick wit, big band swing music, a bit of audience participation and the untamed, often unbelievable qualities of spherical liquids. Casey's show grows from intricate, fog-filled bubble art forms and jazz inspired, choreographed routines to eventually "trapping" people inside bubbles! Since 1989 this popular stage show has amazed and amused ages 5 to 95 at theaters, performing arts centers, banquets, festivals, fundraisers, civic and community events nationwide and around the globe.

Navigating College Admissions Successfully in 2024
7:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Navigating College Admissions Successfully in 2024.

Wednesday, March 20th, 7:00 PM, Zoom. 

 

Stand Out For College LLC is offering this Zoom presentation to help families understand how the lingering effects from the pandemic have changed the college admissions landscape. They will discuss how it affects Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.

 

Discussions includes:

  • How the Supreme Court decision will impact the college admissions process and how a student’s ability to express their insights, experiences and personal growth will become even more important.
  • Current college admissions trends
  • The importance of researching and visiting colleges to find schools that can be a good fit for your child
  • Timeline and other action steps that can be taken to make this second half of the school year productive and help reduce the stress around the college admissions process.
  • The holistic admissions review process, what admissions officers consider important when they review applicants, and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission.
  • Additionally, the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and a way to showcase a student’s character. Admissions officers place great emphasis on a student’s character and how the student has been able to give back and help others. This program is recommended for parents and their high school teens.  

The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC. (www.standoutforcollege.com)
