-Mr. Clarke has all the paper they can ever use, so if your child needs either lined or graph paper, just have the child ask!

"Greetings" quiz (M)

Our class is singing at the beginning of the Jingle Mingle tonight (Wednesday). They should convene with Mr. Karr at 6:00 p.m. wearing black pants/skirts and white tops (and Santa hats if they have one!)

Our next performance is December 14 at Centennial Theatre. Students are asked to again wear black & white, but include a toque please. Students are asked to be dropped off at the "Performer's Entrance" (on the Lonsdale side of the building) at 6:40 p.m. Parents, please drop them off and take their coats with you when you go to sit down in the theatre. Our class performs first, and will thereafter wait downstairs in one of the "green rooms", where they can pass the time with a book, or a simple board game they bring etc. Then, at the end of the night, our class will be called back up onto the stage with the entire school to finish the night with "We Wish You A Merry Christmas". They should leave their books/board games/cards etc. in a tub for that purpose which Ms. Beleski will have. Because the kids get dismissed from the stage, there won't be an opportunity for them to go back and get their books etc., so we will hand those back the next morning in class. Dismissal will take place starting with the Kindergartens and any older siblings, then Grade 1s and any of their older siblings, then Grade 2s and any of their older siblings, and so on. Much of this follows the plan we have had for the last couple of appearances at Centennial Theatre, so while it may not be new, please do familiarize yourself with the plan and go over it with your child. Questions? Call the school, jot a note in your child's planner, or email me (pclarke at nvsd44 dot bc dot ca)
