General Information for Participants

Arrival and Departure
The teachers will be waiting for your student in the classrooms. It is very important that you pick up your student on time. We do not have child care available for after class times.

Water & Snacks
Please send a water bottle with your student. Acting is thirsty work. If your child needs to have a snack, feel free to send something small, healthy and easy for them to handle. Please, no soda or candy.

Clothing
Skirts without bike shorts, bare middles, tight clothing, flip flops — no fun. If the student is afraid of something showing, all that creativity will go right out the window. Please have your student wear loose, easy-going clothing. It’s time to play and have fun.

Observing
We have found that students participate more fully and are more focused when loved ones are not present. If you would like, you may stay for the first 10 minutes of their first class, but if you stay you will have to play. We will take good care of your children and you are invited to see all the wonderful work they’ve done if there is a final performance. If there are special circumstances please contact the teacher of your class.

Discipline
It’s all about play and we want all our students to have lots of fun and enjoy the creative experience. So, if a student becomes disruptive or wants to watch instead of joining in — we will use the quiet time-in method where we invite the student to take some quiet time and rejoin the group when they’re ready. However, if behavior becomes an issue, we’ll contact you to help us.

Cell Phones
Cell phones, cell phone watches, and tablets are all distracting and invade on the space to create. We ask that all digital distractions be left with parents/guardians so we can be free to play and be present with one another.

For questions, please email Dawn Kolden at dawn@mccallarts.org
Special circumstances will be met on an individual basis.

Linda has her B.A. in Education grades K-8, Music Education K-12, and Early Childhood Certification from Boise State University. She obtained her Orff Music Certification in Westchester, PA. She has taught pre-school through 6th grade. Music has been a big part of Linda’s life since childhood. She has had varied musical situations and opportunities. Some favorite positions: playing Honky Tonk piano on a paddleboat in Alaska for a summer, flying to a rural church in a fixed wing airplane every Sunday for years to be the church organist, playing piano for over 25 Missoula Children’s Theater musicals, and singing or playing piano in various local folk groups. Linda was music director for one adult musical, The Quilters, and prefers working with the creative imaginative children in her casts.

Maria has been part of the MDSD for the past five years where she makes classrooms look like a Pinterest Board. Maria has also decorated spaces for the holidays and weddings at Jug Mountain. She has a joy of sharing her skills with others and lets the young people in MAHC CT plays take pride in their costumes.
