Dear Kindergarten Parents and Families,
The Uniontown Elementary School Kindergarten Classes would like to invite you to their first musical performance! Two performances will be held on Thursday, March 6, 2014 at 6:00 pm and 7:15 pm in the Uniontown Elementary gymnasium. Parents and families are welcome to come and enjoy the students’ first music concert.
Due to the large number of kindergarteners, there will be two separate performances. Students in Mrs. Bussey’s, Mrs. Welty’s, and Mrs. Mengeu’s classes will need to report to the gymnasium at 5:30 pm and will perform at 6:00 pm. Students in Mrs. Zelenko’s and Ms. Stair’s classes will need to report to the gymnasium at 6:45 pm and will perform at 7:15 pm. The concerts will last about 30 minutes each. When coming to the second performance, please do not arrive too early so that the families of the first performance can exit the parking lot and create spaces. All students are expected to perform.
Students are expected to wear dressy clothing. Please use your discretion on deciding what your child is to wear, however, do not have your child wear sweat pants/shirts, ripped up jeans, or play clothes. We have talked about proper clothing choices in class and many of the students have shared what they would like to wear. Please do not feel that you need to buy a new outfit for your child. If your child has outgrown their dress shoes, have them wear their nicest pair of tennis shoes. Please have the girls refrain from wearing heals or clunky boots, since they will be climbing up and standing on risers. We want the students to be as safe and comfortable as possible.
Some students will be selected to say a word or phrase in the performance. When these students are chosen, a notice will be sent home with their part. The parts will be chosen randomly (picking names from a jar) and an equal amount of student will be chosen from each class. Not every student will be chosen. There will be about 10 -15 students chosen from each class.
Due to all of the calamity days, the students have missed some of their music classes. I have posted the words of each song on my blog. This does not include the actual music, but the students will know the melodies. You can check out my blog on the Lake Local Schools website (lakelocal.org). Click on Uniontown Elementary, UE Teacher Pages, and then click on Mrs. Bishop’s Blog. This will be very helpful in the memorizing of the songs. Your help is appreciated.
If your child is not able to attend, please let me know. My email address is email@example.com or you can call 330.877.4298. Also, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I am in the building from 8:15 am -12:00 pm, but I do check my email at home. I am looking forward to the performance and I can’t wait to see you there!
