Hi-lites week of Dec. 11, 2015

Entering the Third Week of Advent

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Highland Catholic School Christmas Program is Thursday, Dec. 17th.

Here are just a few quick points:

Dec. 17th 9:00 a.m. Program

This is a less crowded venue and perfect for picture taking. The daytime show is sometimes easier for Grandparents and younger siblings, too. And some parents love the show so much, they attend both performances, too.

1. Students should arrive to school in costume with regular out-of-uniform clothes to change into after the morning show. We will send the costume pieces home, so your child can come back to school at night dressed and ready to go!

2. Homework Club will be not be offered on Dec. 17th.

Extra Innings will close at 5 p.m., so that our actors can recharge at home before returning to school.

Dec. 17th 7:00 p.m. Program

We expect a full house. It is a great show.

1. Students will be allowed into school at 6:30 p.m. and will report to their homerooms.

Please do not drop students off before 6:30 p.m. IT IS NOT SAFE.

Students should arrive between 6:30-6:45 p.m.

2. Please keep your child’s coat and winter gear with you. Students DO NOT return to school after the show.

3. The church opens at 6 p.m.

4. We love babies, we are in the child business, but please do not risk a howling baby covering up a well-rehearsed line or measure of song. Duct tape isn’t an option, but perhaps a babysitter?

5. PLEASE DO NOT go into the church early and mark a pew. The only reserved pews are the Swing 2015 Front Pew and seats for the families of Mrs. Olson and Mrs. Ann Whiting-who deserve so much more for creating this wonderful show.

We would like to thank the parish staff for their help in our show preparations, especially Mr. Lindell Blanchette

New this year!

The LCCC Youth Group will hold a yummy Bake Sale following the 9 a.m. Show in the Gathering Space. Good time to pick up some Christmas goodies.

Can't wait to see you at the Show!
