Christmas Concert Information Dec 2022

‘Be the Light!’ Annual Christmas Concert Details - Please read carefully.
Show times: Tuesday, Dec. 13 @ 12:30 pm (not ticketed - all are welcome to attend) Tuesday, Dec. 13 @ 6 pm (ticketed event - every audience member must have a ticket)

Day of Rehearsal: On Dec. 13, students arrive at school as usual, and all are bussed to Southminster United Church with their classmates and staff. Kids should have their lunches and a water bottle with them. - parent helpers may be requested by classroom teachers - AM is class practice time with everyone watching, followed by lunch, followed by 12:30 show.

Costumes: Students and parents have been told what to wear for the concert. Please check with your child or their teacher if you are unsure.

Attendance: Barring illness, it is expected that all students will attend the concert school day and evening performance. Parts have been assigned, and it would be very difficult to make changes at this point. Thank you for making this a priority in your child’s learning.

Tickets: There are about 800 seats available. Tickets are $5.00 each to cover the cost of concert expenses. Each family can purchase up to 4 tickets via SchoolCashOnline between Dec. 2 and Dec. 8. Paper tickets will be sent home with your child in a labeled envelope. Every person attending (even toddlers) needs a ticket. If you would like to request additional tickets, please e-mail [email protected] with your request. We will try to fill as many as possible on Friday, Dec. 9. Some of our students live in 2 households and so we ask that those families strive to work out juggling those 4 tickets. Again, additional tickets can be requested.

Student Drop Off Time: Students are to be dropped off at the Southminster Hall door (next to Two Guys and a Pizza) no earlier than 5:30 pm. Once you have dropped your child, you will go to the front door to join the audience. We have staff and volunteers in place to look after the kids while they wait to perform. Students should keep electronic devices, including phones, at home. Students can bring a labeled water bottle if needed. Teachers will have backstage activities for them to do.

Instrument Movers: We are seeking 2 parent helpers with larger vehicles to help move instruments from school to the church at 7:45 am on Dec. 13 and help to set up upon arrival. It won’t take too long. If you are interested in this important role, please contact Mrs. Jones-Husch at 403-327-4386.

Ushers Needed: Look for an e-mailed Google Form inviting you to be an usher. We require 4-6 ticket takers as well as 10-12 ushers to help people find available seats, to gently ask people to move over…all of the important things in a rush seating situation. Ushers should plan to arrive via the west ‘office’ door at 5:20 and for their service, can choose where they will sit first. We appreciate your help as staff are not available for these duties.

Accessibility Entrance: There is an entrance on 11th Street to the main floor ideal for those needing greater accessibility due to wheelchairs, walkers, etc. If you require that entrance, please call our office in advance. We will have someone at the door to help out.

Recording: The concert is being recorded by Sonic Multimedia and an edited copy will be shared with all families once it is ready. This can be a great keepsake or a way to share it with family who could not attend in person. The cost of this venture is included in your ticket price.

Any questions? Please stay up on your child's teacher's communication or call our office at 403-327-4386.
