The College School is bustling this week as we prepare and practice for our Annual Talent Show. Returning families know how special this event is, and for our families who are new to TCS this year, you will soon realize how much this performance means to the growth and confidence of the children. It’s a morning that you won’t want to miss, so please plan to come and bring grandparents, family members and friends.
This year’s Talent Show will be held on Wednesday, December 19th at 10:00 AM in Mitchell Hall. This is a change in location from previous years, so we want to be sure everyone knows where to go and park. Below is a link that will take you to a campus map, marking the exact location of Mitchell Hall. The building fronts on UD’s main Green, with the back of the building facing South College Avenue (Route 896).
Please check the following link for a map and specific directions: http://www.udel.edu/nationalagenda/National_Agenda_at_the_University_of_Delaware/Parking.html
The website above was made available just before the elections, when the Road to the Presidency speaker series was held in Mitchell Hall. When reviewing the website, please pay attention to all the directions EXCEPT instructions for parking.
For our show, we are recommending that you utilize free parking provided by the City of Newark. From December 16 – 26, the City of Newark is offering free parking at meters and in city parking lots. There are quite a few metered spaces available along South College Avenue, Kent Way, and Amstel Avenue. In addition to these free spaces, there will likely be open spaces available in the parking lot on Delaware Avenue behind Grotto’s or any other city lot along Main Street. Obviously, these free parking spaces will be on a first come, first served basis. If, for any reason, you choose to park in one of the UD lots, you will be required to pay the fee required. The two UD lots closest to Mitchell Hall are indicated on the website map…..one on South College Avenue is the Visitors’ Center Lot, and the other is on Main Street in the Trabant Parking Garage.
Please feel free to call the office at 831-0222 if you have any questions.
We hope to see everyone next Wednesday at the Talent Show!
