Thank you to all concert participants and assistants

Thank you to all of my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders for a magnificent performance on April 12th! Your singing was beautiful, and your stage presence, stunning!!

Thank you to all parent volunteers for getting over 140 students lined up, and both on and off the risers. I appreciate your suggestions, and will have students arrive later next year, so the wait won't be as long.

A special thank you to my fourth grade assistants: videographers, photographers, slide show creators/presenters, narrators, and program distributors! Whew! Your dedication and determination is very much appreciated.

We still need parent volunteers for Joey Adams, Chrissy Driver, Shannon Baird, Haley Blair, and Gretchen Garvey's  classes. Remember, you'll get seats in the front 3 rows!!

Mrs. Burritt's 1st/2nd/3rd grade students will be presenting a spring concert on April 12th, beginning at 6:30 pm. We will be broadcasting live on the internet, thanks to RETN. (
Several 4th and 5th graders have offered to be my tech crew. I will be sending permission forms home this week.
Thank you all, in advance, for your support!

Dear Parents of Mrs. Burritt's 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders:

Please join us on Tuesday, April 12th, at 6:30PM in the large gym for our concert, Together in Song.
Please have your son/daughter arrive in the cafeteria at 6:00PM, (No earlier) and have your child dressed appropriately. (No shorts or loose fitting or high-heeled shoes please)

I will be posting the lyrics and sound files of our songs on the SCS music webpage, towards the end of next week so students may practice at home..

We will be streaming our concert live, thanks to the Regional Educational Television Network. (RETN) This will be a private link, available only to SCS parents and families. I will send the details home in a separate letter.

I will need 2 parents from each class, to assist with lining up the children on the 12th. The concert begins promptly at 6:30PM, and I will need volunteers 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 assist students in leaving the stage after the program, it would be appreciated. Students will be lined up by team, and by height. (I will have directions printed up 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, (No more, sorry!) in the appropriate viewing area of your son/daughter. I will reserve seats for the 1st two responses from each class. (Please e-mail, call, or send in the form below) I will 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.
