CAIS Winter Program By Amber Keown-Lang, Elaine Jutamulia, Picabo Mellquist, and Zoe Barros O’Haren
The 5th Grade Mean Flowers perform at the CAIS Winter Program.
Before the winter program, we interviewed the CAIS music teacher, Ms. Susan Kennedy and her assistant, Ms. Amanda Cruz. We asked them about the winter program and what it was like preparing for it. Every year, the CAIS 8th graders produce the winter program. It’s performed by the 8th graders and the lower school. It has dancing, acting, music and more. This year’s winter program was based on Alice in Wonderland (now called “Alice in Nonsenseland.”). The Dragon: How does it feel to work for the winter program? Ms. Cruz: “It’s very exciting; there is a lot of work to do, but I like it, ‘cause it’s all really creative. I like seeing what you guys can do.” Ms. Kennedy: “Well, it’s very exciting; it’s very fun. This uses lots of different things I’m interested in, like music and dance, costuming, visual arts, and script writing. It’s overwhelming a lot of the time, so much to do. Even though I have people helping me, a lot of it I have to do myself, I have to coordinate myself. It’s a lot of work, and a lot of fun.”
