4th Grade Winter Wonderland Program

To all my awesome 4th grade performers:

Keep up the good work!  We have very little time left before the program, so be sure to memorize the songs and be prepared for auditions this week.  Auditions are fun and easy!  You may use the script for auditions.  You may also audition with a partner.

I will review the auditions over the weekend and announce results next Tuesday, November 25th.

When you return to school on December 1st, I need everyone to have all songs memorized.  Featured singers and speakers need to be memorized as well.

Can’t wait to run through the show with everyone!!
