Spring Concert for Mrs. Burritt's students

Please join us on April 11th, at 6:30pm in the large gym, as our 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders share songs of peace, joy, and friendship.
Classes participating are:
Sally Stevens, Nancy Nakhleh, and Christine Hertz
Haley Blair and Leah Castrovillari
Joey Adams, and Stephanie Kozikowski

Here is the letter sent home to all families of participating students:

Dear Parents of 1st-3rd grade students in the following classes:
Sally Stevens, Christine Hertz, Nancy Nakhleh, Haley Blair, Leah Castrovillari, Joey Adams and Stephanie Kozikowski

Please join us on Tuesday, April 11th, at 6:30PM in the large gym for our concert, “Together in Song.”
Please have your son/daughter arrive in the cafeteria at 6:10PM, (No earlier) and have your child dressed appropriately. (No shorts, flip-flops or high-heeled shoes please)

I will be posting the lyrics and sound files of our songs on the SCS music webpage this week, as some students have expressed an interest in practicing outside of music class. (

I will need 2 parents from each class, to assist with lining up the children on the 11th. The concert begins promptly at 6:30PM, and I will need you to arrive in the cafeteria at 6:00, to line up students, and assist them to the proper placement on the risers. Also, if you are willing to help get students back to the cafeteria after the program, it would be appreciated.  Students will be lined up by team, and by height. I will have directions printed for you when you arrive, as well photos of each class’ placement on the risers.

As an incentive, I will reserve 2 seats for you, in the appropriate viewing area of your son/daughter. (I can only reserve seats for the 1st two responses from each class) Please e-mail, call, or send in the form below. I will call/e-mail you to confirm your volunteering. If you do not hear from me, please accept my apologies, for all positions are filled.

Thank you for your help.
