Jingle Jam note from Mrs. Smith

I want to remind all of our 5th grade students and parents about the Jingle Jam concert next Thursday, December 10. This performance is for all 5th grade students and takes place at the PTA meeting on Thursday, December 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the Pharr Cafeteria.

The students have been working hard each week in class to learn our 8 songs and you don't want to miss this performance. It is a fun concert!

The 5th grade class with the highest attendance at the Jingle Jam will receive a prize from me on Friday, December 11.

Students will need to wear jeans and a festive/holiday shirt. That shirt can be solid red, green, white, blue, etc. It can have stripes, Santa, snowmen, reindeer, etc.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you!
Rebecca C Smith, Music Specialist
