What's Happening at Leslie Frost!

Holiday Concert Bulletin!!!


Dear Leslie Frost Family, 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                November 14, 2017

The holidays are approaching and with them, Leslie Frost Holiday Concerts!

Please join us for two evenings of festivities involving community, family, music and the celebration of winter cheer! These dates are finalized, as are the venues, so please mark them on your calendars.

All costume needs, or clothing specifics (if any) will come from your child’s homeroom teacher.

Ticket request forms went home two weeks ago – please contact Mme Kherraji with ticket-related questions. Hopefully, you have returned your ticket request form that was sent home with your child. If not, no worries – we will be sure to have room for you at one of the two shows

 

Please read further:

This year's holiday concert will be fantastic. Those involved in music extracurricular activities and team-teaching have worked hard to guarantee something special for the kids, as well as a pleasant memory for families.

On the evening of December 14th, the Bell Choir, Band, Music Theatre Group, and Junior Choir will perform two shows at Celebrations (formerly Queen Street United Church). These shows will be at 6:00 PM, and 7:30 PM respectively. Families of students involved will be given tickets to one of the two concerts. As you wait – while your child performs in the concert that your ticket is not designated for – your family and friends will be hosted downstairs. Both performances are exactly the same. This venue is so beautiful, and rewards the students with a rich performance experience -–definitely worth playing twice; definitely worth waiting 45 minutes (and socializing!) for your young performer’s benefit. :0)

 

 

The previous evening - December 13th - proves to be equally fun! Each class from grades 1-4 will perform music, dance, and/ or a dramatic presentation. The Primary Choir will also perform.This will also be two concerts back-to-back, but this time at LCVI - a future high school for many of our students.

Kindergarten and SK/1 classes will contact parents to be part of whatever plans those classes have chosen. Their turn for a large concert will come. This is a very long evening!

Having two performances at LCVI on the 14th will accommodate the high ticket demand from our large student population. The first concert will be from 5:30-6:30 PM. The second will be from 7:00-8:00 PM. 

Mr. Chris Schweitzer, principal of LCVI, has generously offered us more than enough classrooms for kids to wait/ congregate/ prepare, as well as the spectacular gymnasium with its stage, lights and sound. He has also provided the common area with television as a place for families to mingle while they wait for their children (as they perform). The parents who are ticketed for the second show will enjoy mingling in this area during the first performance. They will then sit and enjoy the second show while the first seating mingles, as they wait for their child or children. 

The kids get to perform their concert twice!

Thanks so much for being positive and supporting a festive holiday season for kids!

Sincerely,

The Holiday Concert Team

Newsletter #4 = Lindsay Santa Claus Parade Float

Dear Music Parent/ Guardian,

On November 19th, students from each Bell Choir, Junior Choir, Band and Musical Theatre are invited to join us in making a Float for the Lindsay Santa Claus Parade.

We will meet at 11:00 AM in the LFPS parking lot to begin assembly of the float. A sketch of the proposed float design is already completed and supplies are accounted for. There may be some last minute requests – but we hope not! :0)

If your child could please give thought to the following: dressing up as something “Canadian” – or a visual accessory that shouts “I am Canadian!” Someone is actually dressing up as a syrup bottle! One other has a Polar Bear outfit. Many are wearing Canadian sports sweaters, or bringing a hockey stick. Remember that warmth is key.

The parade begins at the Lindsay Rec Complex and ends at the Academy Theatre. We will be getting the children to the Rec Centre.

We take the kids to the Rec Centre for 12:00 sharp.  The parade begins at 2:00PM. Please make sure your child has a lunch! :0) (Thanks Barb!!!)

PLEASE ARRANGE TO HAVE YOUR CHILD PICKED UP AT 3:30 PM in the Park ACROSS FROM THE MASONIC LODGE (JUST DOWN FROM THE ACADEMY THEATRE). If the parade ends earlier, please meet us as soon as you can. It may be difficult so we will have supervision until the last student is picked up. But PLEASE consider it a priority to pick your child up ASAP.

 

Thank you so much for supporting the LFPS Music program!

Mr. Smeaton and Mme. Kherraji



Newslatter #3 - Christmas concert info as sent to staff! (More to come to parents)



----- Original Message -----


Hi everyone,

This year's Holiday concert will be fantastic. Those involved in Music Extra- curriculars and Team teaching have worked hard to guarantee something successful for the kids, as well as a pleasant memory for families.

On the evening of December 14th, the Bell Choir, Band, Music Theatre Group, and Junior Choir will perform two shows at "Celebrations" (formerly Queen Street United). Lindy Mackey has, once again, generously supported Leslie Frost with cost for this evening. These shows will be at 6:00, and 7:30 respectively.

The previous evening - December 13th - proves to be equally fun! Each class from grades 1-4 will perform music, dance, and/ or a dramatic presentation. The Primary Choir will also perform. This will also be two concerts back to back, but this time at LCVI - also a future a High School for many of our students. 

Jk/1 classes will be considered Kindy, and will be part of whatever plans those classes have chosen. This is because the teaching of songs is done in Eric's class. Kindergarten families can learn to expect that their turn for a large concert will come. It is long enough for a grade one.

The two performances will accommodate the high ticket demand from our student population. The first concert will be from 5:30-6:30 PM. The second will be from 7-8:00 PM. 

Mr. Schweitzer has generously offered us more than enough classrooms for kids to wait/ congregate/ prepare, as well as the gymnasium and its stage, lights and sound.

He has also provided the common area as a place for families to mingle with television and beverages while they wait for their children. The parents who are ticketed for the second show will enjoy mingling in this area during the first performance. They will then sit and enjoy the second show while the first seating mingles. 

The kids get to perform their little numbers twice!

Mrs. O'Leary would like to know of any teachers who are unable to attend so that the new Principal can make arrangements for supervision of classes - which is actually the teacher's responsibility. Costume ideas, if any, will be given to homeroom teachers no later than the second week of November.

This is a very busy time of year. We would like to suggest that the school population sees these performances at an assembly in late January. The staff and kids love seeing their peers perform. A few weeks won't hurt - and will be one less in- school hurdle in December.

Two last points:

***  If you have a song, or anything you are working on in class that you would like to be part of this, of course it is welcome to be added.
*** A survey sheet is in your mailbox to handed out to each student in your homeroom. It asks parents information about their probable attendance. Thanks so much for getting these out ASAP. These forms can be sent to the Office as they come in.

Thanks so much for being positive and supporting a festive holiday season for kids!





Newsletter #2

October 19th


On Thursday, October 19th we will have a "Celebration of Music" assembly outside at the back of the school. This was also mentioned in the October newsletter. Please bring a lawn chair and join in the celebration!


Each of our school music groups will perform a small selection: Band, Primary and Junior Choirs, Bell Choir and Music Theatre - don't miss it!


Thank you to Mrs. O'Leary and Mrs. Medhurst for prioritizing The Arts and ALWAYS providing opportunities for the kids that encourage a love for The Arts within a very busy extra-curricular school roster of events! If we had one more event planned for the Year, we might bust! Amazing.





Newsletter #1

Welcome Back!


Welcome Music people to 2017/ 2018!


This year promises to be spectacular. Please be patient as we begin the year - it takes a wee bit to get ready and "in the groove". But...

We will be rolling... soon!


Extra-Curriculars this year include:


Concert Band: Wednesday after school to 4:15/  Thursdays from 12:50-1:30 PM (sectionals)

Junior/ Intermediate Choir: Wednesdays - (12:50-1:30 PM)

Primary Choir: Time TBD

Music Theatre Club: Mondays after school to 4:00. Selections from Broadway Musicals are rehearsed - full choreography!!!

Bell Choir: TBD/ Wednesdays after school from 4:30-5:00 for those in Band and Bell Choir


Please encourage commitment if your child is interested in ensembles and clubs. If recess is more important, we understand and support how important peer friendships and play are. If that's the case, perhaps a music extra-curricular is something to consider down the road or after Christmas etc.


Thanks so much!!!


Mr. Smeaton and Mme. Kherraji
