O n May 29 and 30, 2015, a cast and crew of 65 of Anwatin Middle School s 6th, 7th and 8th grade students inspired and entertained audiences with perf o rmances of the comedy Shrek The Musical. This year s show was full of energy and showcased some amazing talent! Local Bryn Mawr youth featured in the cast were Jack Stillman (Area 3) who played Donkey, Rose Andersen (Area 3) as one of the Three Little Pigs, Meghan Abel (Area 5) as Goldilocks, and Abby Smith (Area 6) as Pinocchio. Students rehearsed every day for eight weeks with professional artists, quality sets, costumes, sound and lighting. The school musical is one of the key ways in which Project SUCCESS helps students build confidence, gain new experiences, and learn more about themselves and each other through the power of theater. Working hand-in-hand with students at Anwatin Middle School since 2000, Project SUCCESS has produced yearly school musicals. Shrek was the 15th show at the school! Thank you to everyone who came to see the show.

We would have some storage, an address, and a location for a phone. Dennis suggested we supply the Uptown space with a p rojector and screen and put in Wi - Fi.

From the Editor My guess is, that if I l o o k e d back at every column I have ever written for the July Bugle, it would say this is my favorite edition. That s because July is the annual Bryn Mawr Bugle salute to graduates. It is so great that we have a print publication where we can honor the accomplishments of the youth in our neighborhood. Where else can you live in the city, where parents can see a photo of their graduate and write some loving words to send them off on an adventure? This year, I couldn t even fit them all on one page, so I am feeling double the joy. I also feel like this communal celebration is more important than e v e r. Back when I was growing up, neighbors actually knew more about each other s lives and milestones. The kids spent summers hanging out in common yards and p l a y g rounds, they went to the same schools and spent what seems to me like more time together. Now, young children go to more s t r u c t u red pre-schools or play environments and are more likely to meet children from other parts of the city than the the ones down the block. Community schools have been supplanted by choice and face-to-face time with Social Media. Even I was surprised to learn of some of this year s graduates and I bet they don t all know each other. My high school reunion is in a couple weeks. I graduated with 500+ other people and no way did I know them all, but we have a connection just the same. I did know everyone in my neighborhood and I hope the same for this year s graduates. Even if you went to diff e re n t high schools, I hope you feel a connection to the others in the Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Class of 2015! Congratulations to you, your parents. Go out in the world knowing that the readers of the Bryn M a w r Bugle celebrate your accomplishments and wish you a bright future. - JoEllyn Jolstad, MMM, YUMMY! They tell us that ours are the BEST!

9 July 2015 The Bryn Mawr Bugle 9 Project SUCCESS in the BWCA By Marta Fraboni, Director of External Relations at Project SUCCESS Each summer, Project SUCCESS o ffers a very special seven-day canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area for middle school students. The BWCA Advent u res experience takes everything students learn and practice in Project SUCCESS in-class w o r k s h o p s a t their school, and condenses it into a seven day summer experience. It builds upon skills and confidence students have gained in Pro j e c t SUCCESS program, and gives them a real-life experience to apply those skills, which carry over and add value to their academic experience and other real-world settings. Students learn to work together to paddle and portage canoes, set up and break down camp, cook their o w n food and clean up without making an impact on the natural e n v i ronment. They develop positive skills such as goal-setting, leadership, teamwork, and communication, and they build confidence and respect for the awesome beauty of the wilderness and a simple way of life. Mostly they come home with a huge sense of accomplishment that has an amazing impact on their educational and personal gro w t h. RECENT AWARD FOR BWCA P RO G R A M Gov. Mark Dayton pro c l a i m e d May 21 as Character Recognition Day in Minnesota. In celebration, S y n e rgy & Leadership Exchange p resented awards to 12 schools and four community programs for excellence in character development at the Character Recognition Aw a r d s c e remony at the State Capitol.

Gardens produce tomatoes and cucumbers. Young birds test their flight feathers, sometimes with hilarious re s u l t s. Birds sing fro m about 1/2 hour before sunrise to about 1/2 hour after s u n s e t. Most of the singers are males, and if you listen c a refully you can hear that even within a species some birds have more complicated songs than others. This is l e a rned behavior that apparently is attractive to females. July 9, 2000 Bassett s creek washes out the CP railroad tracks under Glenwood Avenue after a 3 inch cloudburst. The Arm y Corps of Engineers had built a narrow concrete channel to contain the creek and drain the slough north of Glenwood and west of Morgan, but as usual nature took its own course. In the 1870s Bassett s Creek was described as a meandering stream with marshy banks winding its way from Medicine Lake to the Mississippi. July 25, 2009 Solar eclipse over SE Asia and the Pacific.
