FAMILY NIGHT: STORYTELLING WITH MICHAEL KATZ
All Cold Spring School Families are invited to come to a storytelling adventure featuring Michael Katz on Thursday, December 7th at 6pm in our auditorium.
Storyteller Michael Katz has been captivating the Santa Barbara community for 27 years with his vast repertoire of tales. During that time Michael has performed at such illustrious locations as the opening of the L.A. Getty Museum and the Disney Concert Hall. For 30 years he was the host of his radio storytelling program Katz Pajamas, and in 1994 he helped cofound the acclaimed theatre troupe BOXTALES.
On Thursday night, December 7 at 6pm, Michael will share some of his wonderful stories with our Cold Spring School Community. Because of his vast repertoire of tales, even Michael doesn't know what stories he will be sharing. Come and see why the L.A. times said, "Michael Katz launched into his first tale, silence reigned. Katz is a versatile performer and wonderful storyteller”"

COLD SPRING BOARD OF TRUSTEES OFFICE HOURS
The Governing Board recognizes the value of promoting the accessibility of Board members to the public.

Kathy Davidson and Leslie Kneafsey, will be available on Monday, December 11th from 8-8:30am in room 11 to meet with any parents or community members. Board members are further restricted from communicating any information received during the community meeting to any other member of the Board outside of a properly called meeting of the Governing Board. Further, no Board actions will be taken nor decisions made during these meetings.
