Stone Ridge hosted a wonderful Parents’ Day Out event on March 15. More than 20 children of wounded service members attended the event, sponsored by the SRPA Community Service Committee and the Yellow Ribbon Fund. Stone Ridge Upper and Middle School students, led by SCG Gators.Troops.Love, made the event a huge success.

Students and their visiting buddies enjoyed face painting, playground time, a moon bounce, basketball games, numerous art/craft projects, and much more. The children had a great time!

The wounded service members were grateful for “adult only” time and the complimentary lunch and movie tickets. Many service members dropped off their children with instructions to call if they cried. The only crying that happened was when the parents came to pick them up – the kids did not want to leave! One girl exclaimed, “this is the best day of my life!” SR student volunteers felt the same way. Special thanks to Lisa Payne, SRPA Community Service Committee chair, and her family for making Parents’ Day Out a success!

On April 6, the Stone Ridge Junior Chorus sang at the Trinity Chamber Orchestra's Concert, which was a tribute to the 450th Anniversary of Shakespeare's Birthday. The girls sang The Fairy Chorus to a famous tune in Mendelssohn's Midsummer Nights Dream, I Feel Pretty, Tonight and One Hand One Heart from a Medley arrangement of Leonard Bernstein's, West Side Story.
