Grades 3-6 will host a Title STEM + Families Night from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the evening. This STEM event will be a fun, family-friendly event that sparks passion for STEM through activities and games for BOTH STUDENTS and THEIR FAMILIES. Dinner will be provided for the whole family. You and your child will explore … inspire … empower … and educate yourselves about how much fun STEM can be. You will also learn simple things you can do at home to foster your student’s interest in STEM. Most importantly, you will get the chance to connect with other families and Gess staff members while you and your children learn and play together. Research shows that family engagement leads to greater student success. Students with engaged parents are more likely to earn higher grades, attend school regularly, have better social skills and go on to college.

MARCH 4-5: PAP Auditions for “Sylvia”
The Park Avenue Players community theater group will be hosting auditions for their spring comedy production entitled “Sylvia” on March 4-5. The play is centered on a love triangle that develops between a husband and wife and their new female dog. Sylvia is a beautiful stray puppy that the husband Greg brings home from his walk in Central Park. She is a talking, highly energetic, and attention-craving canine. For both of them, it is love at first sight. However, when he brings the dog home, his wife Kate is less than thrilled as she sees the dog becoming a wedge dividing their marriage. The plot thickens as Greg spends more time with Sylvia, Kate becomes increasingly jealous, the marriage counselor advocates divorce and dog euthanasia, and Greg’s friend warns him of the splintering effect his dog can have on the relationship between husband and wife. The two-act play is designed for six actors. The characters of Greg, Kate, and Sylvia are line-intensive. The characters of Phyllis, Leslie, and Tom require less line memorization. Auditions will be held at the PACA Center for the Arts at 405 North Third Street East, on March 4-5 at 6 p.m.

MARCH 13: Pecha Kucha
You can learn a lot about art in six minutes and forty seconds. Twenty slides worth, in fact, say organizers of an event coming to Chewelah this March 13 from 5-8 p.m.. Pecha Kucha started in Japan as a way for designers to share their work with others. The Chewelah Arts Guild is adopting this speedy presentation format, so that viewers can get a taste of local artists’ work. Each artist or group shared 20 slides about their art or event in less than seven minutes. Sponsored by Chewelah Arts Guild and The Independent, Bud Evans inspired this presentation after having attended a Pecha Kucha event at a dental convention. Evans searched around and found the closest Pecha Kucha event in Ellensburg, Washington. He wanted to bring the concept to Chewelah. The fast pace allows for interest to build around art while providing exposure to many different artists in one evening. Pecha Kucha is a free event and the next one will be held at the Quartzite Brewing Co. on March 13, 2019. The date for the September event is yet to be determined.
