Newsletter March 5th

Hello 3/4GT, 4th, and 5th Grade Parents,

This letter is to invite you to the Hillsdale Spring Music Concert – Thursday, March 15th.  This concert will be shared between the 3/4GT, 4th, and 5th grade classes, and we will sing the exact same concert 2 times that same day.

Because of the size of our auditorium and parking lot, I am asking that 3/4GT and 4thgrade family/friends attend the morning concert, and 5th grade family/friends attend the afternoon concert.

 However, if you cannot attend the concert for your child’s grade, you are welcome to attend the other concert.

Thursday, March 15th

  • 9:15 – 10:15 am:         Concert for mostly 3/4GT, 4th grade family/friends
  • 2:45 – 3:45 pm:           Concert for mostly 5th grade family/friends

 

Concert Dress:  Please have your child wear any combination of Spring/Rainbow colors: red, pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple for the concert day.  Girls can wear dresses if they would like to, but not required.  For both boys and girls, aim for clothes on the dressier side of normal school wear.

Thanks for all your support!  See you at the concert!

 

Best regards,   

Dave Gabbard, Hillsdale Music Specialist

Hand Sanitizer and Kleenex

I have put hand sanitizer on each group of tables and it seems to have helped keep the germs out of our classroom.  We are in need of both hand sanitizer and Kleenex in our class.  Donations would be appreciated…Thanks!  🙂
