Choir News

Our choir sang beautifully in 3-part harmony at Remembrance Day!  Quite an accomplishment for an elementary school choir!  Special thanks to Isaac Derr, a very talented Gr. 8 student, for accompanying us on the piano!  After Remembrance Day, the choir started learning new songs for our December performances.  Here are the performance dates:

Tuesday, December 5 from 7:15-8:00 p.m:  Rotary Carol Festival at Knox Metropolitan Church.
Our performance time is actually 7:42, however students should plan to arrive at 7:15, wearing black bottoms and white tops.  This performance will be broadcast by Access Communications Cable Television.

Tuesday, December 12 from 1:30-2:00 p.m:  Caroling at Mr. Mackenzie's home, College Park 1 Retirement Residence.  Students should wear black bottoms and Jack Mackenzie spirit wear.  If they do not have this, they can wear white tops. 

See my next post for concert information.  Thanks:)

Senior Choir

Yesterday our Senior Choir began preparations for Remembrance Day.  This year we will sing "Flying Free" by Don Besig.  Choir members can access their practice videos on YouTube by going to my channel.  Search "Alicia Reschny" and click on the playlist.  Choose the soprano video for "Flying Free" if you are in Gr. 5/6.  Gr. 7/8 students should choose the alto video.  As always, check with your parents before going on YouTube.  Happy practicing:)


Birthday Preparation

We are all getting very excited about celebrating Mr. Mackenzie's birthday on Tuesday, October 3.  Thank you to the SLC for providing each class with that beautiful book.  We are looking forward to the pancake breakfast you are planning too!  The kids have also been busy planning and practicing musical and dance presentations for Mr. Mackenzie's birthday assembly at 9am in the gym.  Please join us to celebrate on Tuesday if you are able!
