Our children have been busy preparing their performances for the December Sing scheduled for Friday, December 12 at 1:00 in our school gym. Kindergarten will sing at 1:00, Grade 1 at 1:10, Grade 2 at 1:20, Grade 3 at 1:30, Grade 4 at 1:40, and Grade 5 at 1:50.
In selecting the pieces to perform, I look for a balance of quality music that is celebratory. As for the content of the songs, I will not choose a song of worship. We may sing about the Christmas and Hanukah stories, Santa, candles, and trees, but the songs will be secular in nature. Please be assured that I will do my very best to be respectful of all families’ faith choices.
Here at Madison, we value the opportunity for parents to take pictures before each grade level performs, but have serious concerns. For the sake of our performers’ safety and security (and to keep the program on schedule); I am requesting that you limit your photos to 2 or 3 that can be quickly taken and return to your seats as soon as you have taken them. Also, please remain outside the performance area (I’ll use cones as a guide) and do not engage in conversation with the performers.
I hope you find these requests reasonable. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to sharing an afternoon of musical fun with you and your family.
Mrs. Susan Lebensorger, Music Teacher
