Dear Westgate Parent(s),
Happy Spring! Isn’t it great to see the green grass and the lovely flowers again? This letter is to inform you that your child will be performing in a music concert on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Westgate commons. The theme this year is “Healthy Habits,” and our students are excited to sing songs about living in a healthy way. Classes involved in the concert are: Mrs. Gogliotti & Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Walsh, and Mrs. Carney. Please review the following information and expectations regarding our concert.
Student arrival time: Students should arrive at 6:45 p.m. and report to the LMC for line-up and final instructions. We will need at least one parent volunteer from each class in the LMC. Thank you.
Student Dress code: Students should dress as if they are going to the gym for some exercise. Shorts, athletic shirts, and gym shoes are acceptable. Our stage tends to be very warm, so I would suggest that students not dress in heavy clothing.
Volunteers needed: Family members are needed to help with video taping, taking pictures, handing out the programs, and LMC chaperones. Please email or call Mr. Berger by Monday, May 20th if you are willing to help. Thank you!
Concert etiquette: Prior to the concert, please speak to your child about proper behavior while on stage. Remind him or her to smile, have fun, keep talking to a minimum, and to follow the director. If they can do these simple things, our concert will be great! Thank you for your help with this important area of performance readiness.
Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Mr. Berger at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (847) 506-6999, ext. 7433.
Thank you, and have a great week!
