My son loves this program and with ADHD it has done wonders for his self esteem.

— Terra Kane

It takes a village to raise well-adjusted children. I know the hardship and stress of losing quality after-school care and activities. If this program is important to parents and kids then it’s important to me.

— Meghan Kelling

Wonderful program! My daughter loved playsical! They all had fun and cute/ funny plays. It will be a loss for the students and parents if it gets taken away. ????

— Carey Vinyard

This program has been wonderful for my daughter. She is heartbroken. It had raised her self esteem and confidence!!

— Cori VandeKieft

Theater is an important part of learning and growing. Our children deserve to have all the arts available and the Playsicle Players was a great opportunity for the kids of McFarland. Please bring it back to the school.

— Mallory Lorenz RN BSN

This was an amazing experience for my 5th grader when we moved to McFarland. The teachers (Kristin!) give the students a safe and affirming space to explore their creativity, be themselves, and be involved with the making and production of the plays. It would be a shame to see this dissolve. Save the arts!

— Jenny Gotcher

This is something the kids love doing and parents back. Why take something away that is helping this kids developed and discover their talents.

— Ann Pulvermacher

It’s a wonderful program. I’m at a loss as to why this would be denied. Unless a valid reason can be made public please bring the program back. If there are issues that need to be addressed let’s address them!

— Robin Koppenhaver

I’ve personally seen kids grow in confidence, positive risk-taking, interpersonal skills and collaborative work with others as they participated in this program.

— Sheryl Rowe

Kids need this!!

— Kathy Stack

I support the cause

— Emily Biggin

Playsical players has been a wonderful program for our children and they receive so many benefits from being involved. If it’s possible to work out the logistics between the program and the school system it would be greatly appreciated by our family

Kristin, Thank you so much for the kind words. [My child] ]has loved your classes. Believe it or not she was very shy until 3rd grade. Acting has really helped her build confidence. Unfortunately this will be her last session. She wants to play soccer this spring. Thank you for giving her this opportunity.

Thank you for the wonderful performance this afternoon – we really enjoyed it. [My child] was definitely nervous – she wasn’t as animated as she normally is. Hopefully getting a performance under her belt will help her with the next one! She would love to continue into the next session – I’ll send a check with her to school next Tuesday!

It’s awesome that you provide snacks – thank you!! [My child is] a bit nervous about where to go this afternoon, but I shared your messages with her and told her to grab her backpack and stand outside of the office.

She was absolutely adorable and perfect! We found everyone effortlessly. ???? I’m pretty good at reading that “I THINK this is where I’m supposed to be” look in kids’ eyes. ???? Thanks for everything. Kristin

  • The Playsical Players I don’t know why I hadn’t looked at these until last night! John, they are the most incredible photos I’ve ever seen of the kids. Absolutely out of this world and we can’t thank you enough!!! You are so talented!!! Thank you thank you!

Congratulations to session 4’s incredible PLAYSICAL PLAYERS, who knocked it out of the park with their phenomenal performance of “Middle Kids/Mediocre” Talent yesterday afternoon (February 8)! Their talent was anything BUT mediocre as they sang, danced, told jokes and performed a variety of fun acts for “judges” in the talent show that just “happened” to choose McFarland as their next stop. Eighteen kids performed: one of our actors was sick. 🙁 Hope you feel better, Rayna!
