All students will meet in front of building ONE off of Lebanon road. We will meet at the canon in front of the American Flag for a picture before heading into the hospital. All students wear Jeans and a festive shirt, sweater or choir t-shirt. Parents, I ask that you all not attend the caroling with us. We will be performing a few of our Concert songs with the 13 Carols the students have learned over the past two months and I do not want to spoil any suprises you might hear during the caroling. Also, some of the areas the students will be performing in are not large enough to support a large crowd. You are more than welcome to take pictures before we enter the hospital. We will exit out of the hospital the same way we entered.
ALL STUDENTS NEED TO REPORT TO THEIR ASSIGNED TIME TEN MINUTES EARLY SO WE CAN TAKE A PICTURE AND TAKE ROLE.
If there is a problem with your child attending this event you must contact Mr. Hudson ASAP. This is not a graded event but is a focused community service for the Veterans at the Hospital.
Any questions please refer to Mr. Hudson
