Winter Performance Information
The first graders will be doing two performances-- "It's a Hard Knock Life" and "Light the Candles." Because they will be performing in two different songs, there are two attires. For the "It's a Hard Knock Life," students are encouraged to wear regular clothing- i.e, jeans, overalls, tshirt, etc. Some students are opting to bring an apron to go with the song.
For the "Light the Candle" performance, Mr. Coulter wants the students to wear BLACK pants/skirts and a WHITE dress-up top/turtle-neck. Students will have time in between to change from the Annie outfit to the “Light the Candles” outfit as they will be at opposite ends of the whole performance.
Have your child dress up in their clothing first for the "It's a Hard Knock Life" performance and we will change as a class to the black and white outfit afterwards.
Please note that they will be performing TOMORROW and WEDNESDAY! Please have them in their performance attire for both days!
