Etiquette for Musical

Our staff and parent volunteers are requesting that parents come and enjoy all the performances. Parents & Teachers will be helping with crowd control. Please treat everyone with the utmost respect.

At OLR School, students are taught about appropriate audience etiquette. It is also important that those at our Christmas Musical reflect these same values. Here is the list of those expectations:

Prelude: If you arrive early, you are on time. If you arrive on time, YOU ARE LATE!!!

1. Listen to and watch all the parts of the play. You may not be part of the show, but your reactions affect the performers - the better you are, the better they are.

2. Show appreciation by applauding at the end of each skit.

3. Stomping and cheering belong at sporting events. Leave them there.

4. Turn off cell phones.

5. Keep quiet during the play - remember there are others who are trying to watch and listen to their child perform.

6. Stay for the whole musical. The last song includes all the students from PK-8th grade.

En la Escuela OLR, a los estudiantes se les enseña acerca de la etiqueta de audiencia apropiada. También es importante que los que están en nuestro Programa de Navidad reflejen estos mismos valores. Aquí está la lista de esas expectativas:

Preludio: Si llegas temprano, llegas a tiempo. ¡¡¡Si llegas a tiempo, esta tarde!!!

1. Escuchar y ver todas las partes de la obra. Puede que no seas parte del programa, pero tus reacciones afectan a los artistas - cuanto mejor seas, mejor son.

2. Muestra apreciación aplaudiendo al final de cada sketch.

3. Pisando fuerte pertenecen a eventos deportivos. Déjalos ahí.

4. Apague los teléfonos celulares.

5. Manténgase en silencio durante la obra - recuerde que hay otros que están tratando de ver y escuchar a su hijo actuar.

6. Quédate para todo el musical. La última canción incluye a todos los estudiantes de PK-8o grado.

Middle School Help Needed

We really appreciate it when our 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students stay after the show to help clean up the hall. Parents, please be advised that we will be asking them to help.

Counseling Partners of Los Angeles (CPLA)

Once again the school will be offering a comprehensive school-based counseling program and support services at no additional cost for this service. Parents, teachers, staff, or students themselves can request to see a counselor. An informed consent form needs to be signed by the parent/guardian to begin the process. A signed informed consent form is NOT a request/referral for counseling. However, getting the parental signature ahead of time speeds up the process for our counselors to begin providing counseling to our students. Counselor Jacquline Salvador will be working with us.

This service will begin on Monday, September 12.

Counselor Intern, Jacqueline Salvador
