Bullis Charter School’s production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid Jr.” – featuring fourth- and fifth-graders – is scheduled Thursday through April 29 in the Bullis Charter School Multipurpose Room at the north campus, 102 W. Portola Ave., Los Altos.
The play tells the story of Ariel, a mermaid princess willing to sacrifice her life in the sea to become human.
Fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders in the Los Altos School District will strive to break records and showcase good sportsmanship at the district’s 57th annual Junior Olympics, slated April 29 at Mountain View High School.
The interschool meet will feature students from Almond, Covington, Gardner Bullis, Loyola, Oak Avenue, Santa Rita and Springer elementary schools. More than 1,600 young athletes are expected to compete in events including basketball free throws, chin-ups, hurdles, the 75-yard dash, the 1,320-yard run, the softball throw, the standing long jump, jump rope and the relay race.
The Egan Junior High School auditorium filled with song March 29 as 260 local elementary and junior high students brought their voices together at the fifth annual Los Altos School District Choral Showcase.
Joining their Egan hosts were choral groups from Blach Intermediate School, Bullis Charter, Covington, Oak Avenue and Springer elementary schools, with singers ranging from grades 1 to 8.
The excitement was palpable when U.S. Olympian Ashton Eaton visited Bullis Charter School earlier this month.
Eaton is a decathlete and two-time Olympic champion, winning gold at the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games. He is often referred to as the “World’s Greatest Athlete” for his dominance in the 10-event decathlon and his world records in both the decathlon and indoor heptathlon.
The Community School of Music and Arts has scheduled the presentation “Music and Children with Autism: A Practical Guide for Parents and Caregivers” 7:30 p.m. Monday in CSMA’s Tateuchi Hall, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View.
Music educator Ryan Hourigan, director of the Ball State University School of Music, and licensed music therapist Amy Hourigan will offer insight into how the arts can assist parents and caregivers in connecting and engaging with their children.
