Inspiring, Empowering and Growing Leaders

Dear Johnson Parents and Guardians,

At Johnson, our mission of inspiring, empowering and growing leaders is what guides us each and every day. Through the teaching of the 7 Habits, our students continue to develop the skills they need to achieve success on a personal and, ultimately, interdependent (working with others) level. To encourage them to find their inner leader, we celebrate acts of leadership through our “Play like a Leader” initiative as well as provide multiple building-wide leadership role opportunities. Recently, we introduced the roles of Office Aid, Beautification Committee, Student Tutors, Greeters, and Johnson Awesome Mentors. Teachers also provide opportunities within their classrooms as well. But we know that students sometimes need even more than we can provide during our instructional time at school. For that reason, I encourage you to strongly consider taking advantage of the “Empower Hour” after school programs being offered through Huron Valley Recreation and Community Education.

Beginning on January 24, 2018 and ending on March 1, 2018 there are two programs being offered here at Johnson:

Musical Theatre Workshop: Trolls

This six week musical theatre workshop will focus on jazz and hip hop dance technique, group and individual singing techniques, basic and intermediate theater, public speaking skills, improvisation, as well as other performing arts techniques. Students will be learning songs by Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel and more. The session will end with a culminating performance where parents, friends, and family can come see the tools and skills as well as scenes, songs and dances that the students will learn with us. Choreographed and directed by Lauren Neuman-The Traveling Trainers.
