Just a quick reminder that ticket letters are due TODAY.  Please send you completed form with your child ASAP.   Due to fire regulations, space is limited, so as this time we will only be issuing tickets for immediate family only (student, siblings and parents).   Extended family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc.) are encouraged to attend the morning matinee.    If there are extra tickets available, a draw will be made and tickets will be sent home with the winners.

Please join us as we celebrate our 4th Annual Family Fireside Festival on Thursday, December 18th.  This will provide us an opportunity to join together in celebration of the holiday season.   We will be having two performances; a Matinee at 10:30 a.m. and an evening performance at 6:30 p.m.  Due to fire regulations we are encouraging as many families as possible to attend the MORNING performance.   Tickets will only be issued for the EVENING PERFORMANCE.

Invitations and Ticket Request Letters were sent home today with the youngest member of each family.  Please review these letters and return your ticket request to your class teacher on or before Wednesday, December 10th.  Due to the limited space in the gymnasium we will only be issuing tickets for immediate family (students, mom, dad and siblings) at this time.  If you would like tickets for grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. please indiciate this in your request letter.  If there are extra tickets available, we will hold a draw for the remainder and send them with your child should your family win.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.  Fire regulations are difficult to work around, but we do want to ensure the safety of everyone during this event.
