Chorus to "I've Got A Golden Ticket"
I never dreamed that I would climb over the moon in ecstasy,
But nevertheless it's there that I'm shortly about to be
Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden chance to make my way
And with the golden ticket it's a golden day.

Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world, there's nothing to it

Fond Farewell

Dear St. Juliana Fine Arts Family,

We wanted to take this opportunity to officially bid you adieu.  Our years of working with the children and parents of the St. Juliana Fine Arts Association have been wonderful and now, with the graduation of our daughters, our time is done and the baton is being passed to the next group of dedicated parents.

Under our leadership of the FAA, we have seen the association grow.  The Spring Musical continued to evolve, we founded the Glee Club and have witnessed its growth, Drama Club and Try It workshops continued to provide an outlet for our children to discover and showcase their talents.

The FAA does quite a bit during the school year, but by far, the play is the biggest project.  All the work involved – starting months in advance from the planning stages, research, contracts, licensing, fundraising, etc., then moving on to set build, costumes, props, rehearsals and finally, one weekend of performances and it is done.

This type of undertaking takes a village.  Not one person alone could make this happen – it took every single volunteer.  You are all equally important and vital to our success.

We express our heartfelt thanks to the school and parish administration, teachers and community for your support.  The FAA could not have grown to the organization it is today without your support.

You are all truly the heart of the Fine Arts Association.

 

Sincerely,

Nicole Cohen and Mary Baranek
