6th Grade Musical!

Dear Parents:

The sixth grade musical “STOMP IT OUT” is Thursday, April 7! We have been working very hard and are very excited! Here are some reminders:

· Please have your student wear blue jeans and tennis shoes to school and to the evening performance on Thursday. If your student needs to wear a named character part costume for the show, please have it at school on Wednesday, April 6th for the dress rehearsal. T-shirts will be passed out at school for the afternoon performance, and worn again for the evening performance.

  • You are welcome to bring a video camera or still camera, but please no flash photography during the performance.
  • Please continue to review any speaking lines your student may have at home!
  • A dessert reception will follow the evening performance in the cafeteria. If you are able to help, please look for a sign up genius email also to come! Thanks for your help to make this nice for the students!

Performances are at 2:00 and 7:00 pm in the gym.




Thank you to all the parents and teachers who have helped to make this program a success!
