3rd Grade Holiday Program Information

Music Notes

The Kenton Elementary School third grade students will present their Christmas Musical on Thursday, December 8th at 7 PM in the Kenton Elementary School gymnasium.  The Dress Rehearsal will be approximately 1:30 PM that same day.  Grandparents and parents who work nights may attend the morning Dress Rehearsal.

Students should begin to arrive at Kenton Elementary School on Thursday, December 8th at approximately 6:30 PM and go to their classrooms.  PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW SO THAT ALL STUDENTS IN THIRD GRADE AT KENTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ARE IN ATTENDANCE.

The program is called, “Crazy Christmas.”  Everything’s wild at the North Pole.  Join the fun as Santa, the Elves, the Reindeer, and our students go crazy for Christmas!

Costumes are pretty easy!  Just have your student wear bright Christmas colors!

If your child is in Miss Howard, Mrs. Ewing, Mrs. Mikesell’s classes, please park in the back parking lot (where the buses park) and enter the school through the back door.  If your child is in Mrs. Sprang, Mrs. Gammon, Ms. Erter, or Mrs. Oakes’ classes, please park in the front parking lot and enter the school through the front door.

As an added bonus this year, if 100% of any individual class is in attendance, those students will receive an ice cream sundae or cookie party during their next music class!  AND, if 100% of all Mrs. Sheldon’s or Mr. Davis’ classes attend the evening performance, each class will get the ice cream sundae party/cookie party plus an extra recess during their music class!

If your child needs a ride to the evening performance or have any questions, please contact the school office at 419-673-7248.
