Students and staff at The Harbour School at Baltimore are working on solving world hunger as a school wide project. In April, they will hold a Museum Day in which each classroom will exhibit, in an interactive way, their method of solving world hunger. In conjunction with their Museum project and the school’s winter holiday performance, the students will be helping the community with an Empty Bowls event (www.emptybowls.net). Our students will have the opportunity to paint a bowl. On the evening of the holiday performance, family and friends will be able to buy a bowl of homemade soup (prepared by The Harbour School chef and students) in one of these hand painted bowls. The bowls are $10.00 and all proceeds will be donated to the food pantry at the Reisterstown United Methodist Church. They serve over 200 families in the Reisterstown/Glyndon community and never turn anyone away.
The Harbour School is a nonpublic school serving students ages 6-21. Students at the school have been diagnosed as having learning disabilities, high functioning autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, other health impaired (primarily ADHD) and multi-disabled.

A performance has been added on Saturday, December 7, at 6:00pm at the Baltimore Arena In the production, Feld Entertainment, Inc., producers of Disney On Ice and Disney Live!, is taking top performing cable TV series for preschoolers to the stage in Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate and Princess Adventure. Featuring characters from the smash hits Sofia the First and Jake and the Never Land Pirates, this brand new production launches a 90-city national tour in July 2013.
“The Feld Entertainment mission of providing quality live entertainment experiences that the entire family enjoys starts with Disney Live! because it is often a young fan’s first theatrical experience,” said producer Alana Feld. “Children everywhere are falling in love with Sofia and Jake, and we are thrilled to bring these popular Disney Junior characters to the stage for the first time ever.”
In this original storyline, Mickey and Minnie lead the audience on an exciting adventure that will have families rooting for their favorite pirate Jake and Disney’s first little girl princess Sofia. Disney Junior Live On Tour! Pirate and Princess Adventure begins with a special interactive pre-show featuring the loveable 6-year-old doctor to toys and stuffed animals, Doc McStuffins. Children and their parents will sing “The Check-Up Song” along with Doc as she provides tender love and care.
Audiences will then embark on a journey to the magical world of Enchancia, where Sofia, her step-siblings Amber and James, and the entire kingdom are preparing for the annual friendship festival. Sofia has the honor of delivering the perfect gift to her royal subjects at the celebration, and the one-and-only Cinderella visits the castle to help Sofia in her mission to find just the right present.
The excitement continues when families cast away to Never Land where Jake and his Yo Ho pirate friends Izzy and Cubby are in a race against time to locate a mysterious treasure-filled volcano. Danger, thrills and adventure lurk around every turn when our swashbuckling friends battle Captain Hook for the ultimate prize.
