Elementary Christmas Programs December 12 and 14 

Students in K-6 are preparing to share a variety of Christmas music with our community in less than three weeks! The performances will be at New West CRC (the church across the street from the elementary campus). This will be a musical celebration of Christ’s peace and joy to us at Christmas and we pray that you will hear the good news of Christ’s birth in new and familiar ways.

Students are expected to participate in all music classes and performances. They are encouraged to wear nice clothing that is appropriate for a Christmas performance. Clothing your child has worn for a piano recital or similar events would be suitable. Please do not wear shirts with words/logos or large headpieces/decorations that can be distracting.

We have a school photographer and videographer for each performance so we ask that parents come and enjoy the live performance and not take any photos when students are on stage. Cameras and flashes are extremely distracting for students when they are trying to focus on their songs and look at the director. Families will get a link to all the school photos and videos after the performances.

There is limited space in the church so we ask those who are able to attend the afternoon performances do so in order to allow others to attend in the evening. You and your extended family near and far may also choose to watch the video instead of attending a live performance.

For the evening performance on Dec. 12, primary students will meet in their SCHOOL classrooms at 6:30.  School doors will be open at 6:25 and church doors open at 6:30 for the 7pm performance. 

For the evening performance on Dec. 14, intermediate students will meet at the church in their designated rooms. Church doors will open at 6:30pm for students and families.

We are so excited to share the good news of Christmas with you!
