TAD prompt

Hey folks!

We can’t gather in person, but that doesn’t mean that creative and performing arts can’t still happen. Every week until mid-June our wonderful TAD (Teen Arts Drop-in) leader Jeqn will be posting a visual art and theatre prompt for those teens who would normally be attending TAD.

Here’s this week’s prompt. Enjoy!

Covid-19 Update

Hello families and friends of ESG,
We want to update you on where we’re at with ESG.
Sadly, but not unexpectedly, Eastside will not be meeting again for guild Fridays or rehearsals this season. We’re going to put the Magnificat presentation on hold indefinitely. There is too much up in the air right now with the covid-19 situation and while we’d love for the show to go on, we’re most concerned with everyone’s health and safety.
We hope to update in a few weeks with some news about how we’re working to support the kids to stay connected in a social-distancing-appropriate fashion.
We hope you are all keeping safe and healthy.
Thanks for reading!
