Christmas Concert Format

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our school family is growing!  This is great news, as this means our community is thriving.  

As we don’t have room to accommodate every family in our gym at the same time, CES has adopted a new Christmas concert format this year.

Our Division I students (Gr. 1 – 3) and the M/W Kindergarten students will perform on the evening of Wednesday, December 21, 2016 at 7 p.m.

Our Division II students (Gr. 4 – 6) and the T/Th Kindergarten students will perform on the evening of Thursday, December 22, 2016 at 7 p.m.

Regrettably, with the additional student preparation required for two evening performances, there will be NO afternoon concert this year.

Our hope is that this format will allow all CES families to have enough tickets to watch their child(ren) perform, as well as provide the space needed for other special people in your children’s lives to attend the concert(s).  We realize this change means some families will need to attend both evening performances, though we anticipate each concert will be shorter in length with fewer students performing on each of the two nights.   We will reevaluate the new format after this year’s performances to determine whether this was an adequate solution in accommodating our growing student numbers.

Please mark these important dates on your calendar.  Information regarding tickets will be coming home in late November or early December.  

Thank you, in advance, for your support of these changes.
