The excitement is building! Our music teacher, Mrs. Peters, has been working diligently with all of our students in preparation for another wonderful celebration of the holiday season. Our students are doing their best to memorize their songs, master the ukulele, and remember to smile for the camera! I am sure they will not disappoint. As a parent, I have many memories of my boys performing at similar events, and whether it was rescuing my youngest off the stage as he was about to faint, watching my middle child discover an interest in the drums, or seeing my oldest demonstrating his best lip synching talents, there were always lasting smiles, even days after the event.
Here are the particulars for this year’s celebration:
Date: December 19th
Place: The Splatsin Centre
Time: Doors open at 12:00pm for general seating; our program begins at 12:30 sharp!
In recognition of the countless hours they put into supporting our school, we will have some reserved seating for our PAC.
Transportation: Our students will be bussed to and from the Splatsin Centre and will be ready for pick up at the usual time (2:00pm) from M.V. Beattie. At the end of the performance, we will ask families to allow the students and staff to exit the building first in order to ensure that we get back to MVB with time to spare…and “no child left behind.” Students who regularly bus to school each day will be able to catch their typical bus ride home.
Admission: Admission is free but donations and/or non-perishable food items are gratefully accepted.
Goodies: Our Lifeskills program will be holding a bake sale fundraiser at the site. Plates of baked goods will be pre-packaged and on sale for $5.
How should I dress my child? There are no costumes or matching clothing to concern yourself with this year. If students could wear their “concert best” – mostly to look good for the photos that parents/guardians and grandparents take – that would be fantastic!
Where will my child be sitting?
The students will be seated on stage as follows:
Mrs. Shinoda’s, Mrs. Schipfel’s, and Mrs. Kolotylo’s classes will be seated on the far left of the stage.
Mrs. Downs’, Mr. Jones’, and Mr. Pyle’s classes to the left
Mr. Easthope’s class in the middle
Mrs. Dell, Mrs. Hooper’s, and Mr. Huntington’s classes to the right
Mrs. Pratt’s, Mrs. Hall’s, and Miss Reimer’s classes to the far right.
Thank you, in advance, for coming out to support your children. We are excited to share this day with family and friends!
