We are thrilled to announce that our 8th grade students will be having an encore performance of their student-created play, A Recipe For Murder, as part of the SES Auction/Fundraising effort that’s happening in our community on June 1, 2022 at 7 pm!

The 8th graders are performing this play once more as a way to pay it forward for next year’s middle schoolers. All of the proceeds from this event go directly to the SES Foundation, and our students are aiming to raise $10,000 or more (!!) to contribute to a robust SES field study program. These kids value regular field study experiences, they miss them very much, and they decided to hold this event as a way to guarantee these experiences for their friends and classmates in younger grades, especially the weekly middle school trips.

We are aiming to make $10,000, all going toward the field study coordinator position and field study experiences for next year. Field studies make Sunnyside what it is, and we want to ensure younger kids get to travel regularly during the 2022-23 school year.
• One ticket (suggested donation): $100
• One ticket (increased donation): $200, $300, $400, $500, other ____
• The above feels steep for me but I can donate ____ ($30 and up, sliding scale) for my ticket.

**Online ticket purchasing coming later this week!

The event will be produced and performed by the original cast and crew, Additionally, there will be middle school students playing instruments as you enter the venue and during intermission. You’ll be welcomed at the door by middle schoolers, and they are excited to usher you to your seat. For all of the students involved, this is a special night and they want you to feel just how special it is!
