The Kenton Elementary School first grade students will present their spring musical on Thursday, May 5th. In order to accommodate the large number of family members who attend our programs, Mrs. Sheldon and Mr. Georgeson will each have their own performance with only the students they each teach. This will allow more students to have lead parts while reducing the audience by half.
The program is called, “A Barnyard Musical.” It is a musical for young voices about unique and talented animals living at an unusual farm. Between the gourmet goats who refuse to eat garbage, a chorus line of hoofing cows, neatnik pigs, and funky dancing chickens, the musical will be sure to tickle the funny bone of performers and audience.
Mrs. Sheldon’s class will be performing “A Barnyard Musical” on Thursday, May 5th at 6:00 PM. Students should begin arriving at Kenton Elementary School on Thursday, May 5th at 5:30 PM. The Dress Rehearsal will be at 8:30 AM that same day in the Kenton Elementary School cafeteria. Parents or grandparents who work evenings are invited to attend the morning dress rehearsal. (Mrs. Jeffers, Mrs. Gerding, and Mrs. Cook)
Mr. Georgeson’s class will be performing “A Barnyard Musical” on Thursday, 5th at 7:30 PM. Students should begin arriving at Kenton Elementary School on Thursday, May 5th at 7:00 PM.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW SO THAT ALL STUDENTS IN FIRST GRADE AT KENTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ARE IN ATTENDANCE!
Costumes: Costumes are very simple – just wear barnyard animal clothing! Below are examples of what you may want to try:
Cows: brown tee shirt with optional white felt circles attached; headband with brown ears attached.
Chickens: yellow tee shirts with optional feathers attached or a feather boa; headband with red comb attached. The chickens are “funky” chickens, so adding sun glasses, leather vests, a sweatband, etc… would be fun!
Pigs: pink tee shirts with optional curly tail attached; headband with pig ears attached. A colorful kerchief around the waist or neck could be fun!
Goats: gray tee shirts (could be the KES tee shirt turned wrong side out) with optional chef hat or apron.
You do not need to go buy something new. The important thing is to make sure that your student comes and joins in on all the fun!
As an added bonus this year, if 100% of all of Mrs. Sheldon’s and Mr. Georgeson’s classes are in attendance, those students will receive an ice cream sundae party during their next music class with them.
Thank you for your support of music at KES!
