Our 1st and 3rd grade students are preparing for the December Music program. This year, we are performing a program called “Let’s All Sing Holiday Songs.” Songs included in the program are Here Comes Santa Claus, Jingle Bells, Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Silver Bells, and Feliz Navidad. The students are very excited and have been working hard to learn their music. I am proud of the work that they have put in so far!
This year’s holiday program will take place on December 5th at 6:00. It is important in planning for the program to have commitment from each participating child. Please return the permission form or fill out the survey on Class Dojo to help me in planning the program. More specific information will come home closer to the performance. Again, I am very pleased with how hard the students are working, and I look forward to the performance!
