"The Present is the Future"

Thursday, December 13, 2018

6:30 p.m.

Prefontaine Hall


Kindergarten students will dress as towns people during the Bible days. They should dress as Jesus did e.g. robes, towel with headband.

1st grade students will be angels wearing white, long robes and carrying flashlights. Wings will not be needed as there are so many different styles; however, please provide a flashlight.

2nd grade students will be sheep or other barnyard animals. The sheep costumes will be provided by the drama department or parents may provide other barnyard animal costumes if desired. Animal headbands or masks are acceptable. Socks should be the color of the costume.

3rd grade students will be wearing white, long-sleeved shirts with collars and dark pants or skirts with socks. Santa hats (red and white only) are also needed and should be brought to class next week for rehearsal. Christmas ties will be provided for the hats.

4th and 5th grade students will wear choir robes, which will be provided by the drama department. The exceptions will be those who have feature roles (roles with short or no speaking parts). In that case, robes will be worn over those costumes, such as Mary and Joseph, and parents will be notified.

Drama students' costumes will be provided by the drama department.
