annual Holiday Music Program! Mrs. Bretz and Mrs. Whitenight, our two music teachers are working to prepare all the children for a one of a kind,incredible event that will be held on December 9 at 7pm. This event is held at Resurrection Life Church, which graciously allows us to rent their facility. It is one of the few facilities that will comfortably hold all of our families (and special visitors) so that we can showcase the musical talents of nearly 600 children.
More details will be shared about directions and arrival time as we head into November. For now, get this date marked on your calendars!
Mrs. Reagan, Mrs. Bretz and Mrs. Whitenight
We had our second full moon of the month–a once in a blue moon event–on New Year’s Eve. I asked readers to take and submit photos of the moon with the promise of sharing these on our school blog. I received photos from five readers and in each one, the moon is set in the surroundings of that region.
The twitter messages I received looked like this:
We also received two links to Flickr accounts from readers in England and Australia! I assembled the photos into a slide show via Picnik--one of my favorite photo editing sites. Enjoy!
You have another opportunity to RSVP for our upcoming December 1st Kids Art Fair! An RSVP form and Art Fair information will be sent home with students this week.
Please note that returning your RSVP to Mrs. Brouwer does NOT mean that you must purchase your child’s framed artwork. The RSVP just lets the Kids Art Fair people know how many frames to ship to Georgetown for the event. So please RSVP if you plan to attend and celebrate your child’s creativity, enjoy a fun make-n-take art project, and register for some cool door prizes to be given away during the evening.
Also – Georgetown’s December Kids Art Fair does not take the place of the annual district-wide Student Art Show, which will be held as usual in April 2010.
We hope to see you at Georgetown’s Art Fair on December 1st between 4-7 PM! Volunteers are still needed to help out – please contact Mrs. Brouwer!
