2nd Grade Christmas Show-Students have received their scripts this week in music class. Please bring these scripts back to Music every week to use in class. Students have chosen a speaking part to audition for. We will host brief auditions for speaking parts during the weeks of Oct. 23 and Oct. 30. If your child does not receive the part they want they will still be participating in the play as part of our choir. I will be sending your child home with a note for you to sign if they have been chosen as one of our speaking characters. If they did not receive a Speaking Part Acceptance note, they will sing in the choir dressed as a North Pole Character such as an elf, reindeer, penguin, polar bear etc.
