Veterans Day Performance
The Geist Elementary Veterans Day Performance is on Thursday, November 11th. 3rd graders will perform at 6pm and 4th graders will perform at 7pm. Due to the pandemic, we will be requesting that all performers wear a mask and highly recommend all audience members to wear a mask as well. Each student can have 2 people in attendance at their performance time along with any veterans. Each veteran may bring a significant other or care taker. They do not need to have a Safe Visitor Badge. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes but in order to have an in-person performance, students will need to be distanced and cohorted on the bleachers which will only allow so much space for an audience. Thank you for your help!
Students will be wearing red, white, and/or blue. We will also have a lot of veterans and grandparents in attendance so having them dress up if possible would be great! If you need to add a neutral color like black, gray, or khaki, that would be fine too. Masks do not need to be any particular color or pattern. Email me if you have any questions.

DIAMOND: An email was sent out next month with the color assignments. Please wait to find out if your student is color scheme 1, 2 or 3. Please do the best you can. I understand that it may not be perfect. Each color is representing a character in the musical. Feel free to turn shirts inside out if you need to. Let me know if you have any questions.
1. White/Cream/Or super light khaki
3. Mostly Browns or Dark Tans if possible then fill in with Black wherever you need to
I’m able to view on Canvas when and how long each student practices their music and choreography. I’d like to challenge all of the 2nd graders to a contest. The top 10 students that have practiced the most minutes from 11/1-12/6 will get a special prize from me! Videos and music have been uploaded then later the script for everyone to practice. Each class sings two songs and one. Let me know if you have any questions. I’ve already emailed out how to get to Canvas but here it is again.
Global-wide Read Aloud & Related Arts Collaboration
I want to thank Mrs. Pidcock for coming up with this great collaboration idea! I'd also like to thank Ms. Allie, teacher from life skills, for sharing her daughters costumes! What a pleasure!
