Aladdin Auditions Have Begun!
Brian Shaheen and Sarah Prusasky, our fabulous Music team, began auditions for this year's musical production of Aladdin on October 28th. Just about twice the number of students in grades five through eight tried out than did so last year, the inaugural year of the musical production at Anderson. Students will continue to audition this week and next as the cast is chosen and stage crew and other tech decisions are made. The level of talent on display during auditions is high!

Our New Fitness Room Is Here!
AMS students and Anderson staff will be excited to learn that our new fitness room has been installed and is ready for use in the fall! Thanks to a generous grant from the office of City Council Member Gale Brewer, a spare room was renovated. Blackboards were torn out, the room was rewired, and new overhead lights were hung. The room was plastered, painted, and equipped with cushioned mats, an air conditioner, and sixteen cardiovascular machines including treadmills, stationary bikes, two recumbent bikes, and several Arc trainers (elliptical machines). Students will receive safety training and will sign off on a pledge to use the machines responsibly. We look forward to our sports teams, health-related clubs and electives taking advantage of this great new space. Thanks for all the hard work by Principal Jodi Hyde, A.P. Rob Schliessman, and Frank Felix, our Custodian Engineer as they pursued this project from beginning to end.
