Christmas Concert details

We had our first rehearsal for the Christmas musical today, and the students gave a great performance!  We practice again Thursday afternoon for the big event on Thursday night.  We also finished our gingerbread house art, which is on display in the hallway between our classroom and the gym, so please come take a look on Thursday when you are here for the concert.  Here is the letter from Mrs. Jones about Thursday night, with the most recent details added.  This has not changed since my last email, but I wanted to make sure it was all in one place for parents.

Good afternoon parents, guardians and students:

All classes K-5 have been hard at work with Christmas Concert rehearsals and preparations. I have listed below a bit of reminder information regarding Christmas Concert dates, times and as well as costume information. 

Thursday, December 14, 7:00 – 8:30 PM: Westmount Christmas Concert 2 (1M, 1D, 2W, 3W, 4C, 4E, 5K, 5M and Ms. Campbell's Kindergarten Students)

Students will be asked to arrive at 6:30 pm to their homeroom classroom on the night of their concert. This is when the school doors open and families are able to find seats in the gym.  The students will stay in the classroom except for when they are performing.  We will be watching the dress rehearsal on Thursday afternoon, so students will get to see the musical then.  The concert should conclude around the 8:30 pm mark. 

Kindergarten students will be performing 2 songs in the production.

There is no special costume required for students in kindergarten, grade 1 or grade 2. Students are welcome to wear something that would be suitable for a concert performance. Dressing in a “holiday outfit” or in Christmas colours would also be suitable. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at jonesa@fsd38.ab.ca

Yours truly,

Ms. Jones
