What's New at Aldene

“Rising Stars”

Aldene Talent Show 2016

Aldene’s talent show will be held on March 16th at 1:30 and again at 7:00pm.

The talent show will be under the direction of Mrs. Cogswell and Ms. Quaglia.

Auditions will be held after school on February 17th from 2:50- 4:30.


The talent show is going to be different than in previous years, so please note the new requirements:

  • Each act must not exceed 2 minutes in length. Some samples of past acts are: vocalists, dancers, actors, comedy skits, karate forms….
  • ALL song lyrics must be school appropriate.  Please bring a copy of lyrics with you to auditions.
  • The talent show will be one hour in length (compared to two hours in previous years).  There are 24 slots open.  If we have more than 24 acts auditioning, we will have to make cuts. 
  • Judging of acts will be done by Mrs. Cogswell and Ms. Quaglia
  • Please notify us at audition time of any equipment needed (microphone, mats, piano, etc.)
  • Each act must be PERFORMANCE READY at the time of auditions.  If an act “needs work” at audition time, it will not be considered for the talent show.  Please come prepared!!!!!!

There will be two run-throughs that will take place before school on March 7th and March 10th from 7:45-8:20. 

If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Cogswell:  acogswell@rpsd.org.

  1. Procedures for drop-off and pick-up:
    1. While we are often fortunate to have assistance from the RPPD, all parents are responsible for knowing and following the correct procedures for everyday usage.  The area outside of the gate and marked in yellow is for drop off and pick up ONLY.  This means your child is getting out of the car and you are pulling away.  You should pull into the line, and pull all the way up to the front.  You may not remain at the curb once your child has exited the car.  This helps maintain the safety and efficiency of our arrivals and departures.
