Thursday Evening, December 8 FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS
Dear Friends and Families,
We've been preparing for you, our guests, at tonight's Festival of the Arts (including winter concert). Kindergarten-Grade 5 should meet in their classrooms by 6 pm. Band and Senior Chorus members meet in the Music Room by 6pm.
The NPTO book fair will be open at 5:30 and after the concert. We do appreciate the parents that have volunteered this week at the book fair! An NPTO wish tree is in the lobby with ornaments. If you would like to fulfill a wish for a classroom, please take one of the ornaments and send the "wish" with ornament back to school before winter break.
Be sure to notice some fantastic art on our walls and in the lobby. There will also be interactive art in the lobby this evening. American Gothic--that's all I'll say!
Look for the 6th grade display in the lobby, too. They are accepting donations for their service project: Water for South Sudan. Grade 6 students have been raising money to build wells "so people can have clean water to drink." In their words, "Every penny counts!" (BONUS thank you gift tonight from grade 6--coloring books. Their own coloring books were produced to show appreciation for donations.
Meanwhile, also in the spirit of the season, Kindergarten and 8th grade buddies are collecting for donations for the local food pantry. A box is located near the front door. Non-perishable food items, diapers and pet food are all good examples of what they are hoping to donate to our local food pantry.
Thank you, everyone, for supporting our students this evening in a variety of ways. We look forward to tonight's Festival of the Arts. The program in the gym begins at 6:15 pm!
