2 Summer Opportunities for students:

Subject:  Carroll College Teen Summer Conservatory

Good afternoon,

My name is Kimberly Shire and I am Assistant Professor of Theatre and Director of Theatrical Production at Carroll College. We are so excited to share our Theatre Conservatory for teens with you and your students. The Theatre Conservatory is a week long intensive summer program for teenagers ages 13-18. Students will stay in Carroll College's dorms for the week and will gain skills in acting, movement, voice, and technical theatre. Students will work on a showcase piece that will be performed for friends and family at the end of the week. In addition to the classes, students will have the opportunity to see shows in the Helena area and discover what Carroll College and Helena, MT have to offer.

We would appreciate it if you would pass this on to your students that might be interested in participating in this camp. See below for information on our Summer Conservatory. Please note, due to COVID-19, there is a possibility that this camp will be cancelled by the college for safety reasons. If that should occur, the deposit would be refunded or could be applied to next year's conservatory.

If you know other people who would like this information or have contact with teens who are invested in the arts, please pass this email on to them.

Subject: MWS Online Info Session -- please pass details to students, families, and staff

I hope this email finds you, your loved ones, and students healthy and well while adjusting to the new reality. My name is Kodee Cloninger, I am the Outreach and Admissions Manager for Montana Wilderness School  a nonprofit outdoor education based in Bozeman.

I am writing to you because either my team or myself have connected with you in our efforts to let Montana students know about the multi-week backcountry expeditions we offer over the summer months. Current situations have made it even more obvious how essential building community and spending time outdoors are to our human experience.  I am reaching out this week to share details on online info sessions we are holding for families to learn more about our courses/course changes and the robust Financial Aid/Scholarship program we have for Montana youth.  Montana Wilderness School was founded on the premise of making these outdoor leadership opportunities accessible to every Montana youth no matter their economic or social backgrounds or challenges. We hope to reach students who have a drive to grow and experience the outdoors in a way that they may not have had an opportunity to do beyond excursions with their families.

The info sessions will be held over Zoom and open to all who wish to learn more about what we do and specifically what we are doing this coming summer. If students have already seen a presentation from us this would be a great chance for their parents to learn a bit more and see what changes we have made due to Covid-19.  We understand that education and being an educator has changed a lot in the last weeks and this may be too much to ask, but we hope you are able to pass on this information to your students.  If it feels more fitting we could set up a separate info session specific to your class/group of classes. Below are the dates/links and times to our Zoom meetings and attached is an announcement that could easily be attached to anything you distribute.
