Paint the Town December!


The West School Chorus performed a special holiday musical last night: Paint the Town December!  The show was a great success, with 97 chorus students participating in the performance.  Santa even took time out of his busy schedule to make an appearance, can you believe it??!

The kids of Graysville do a community service project each year and paint all the shop windows on main street, to brighten their town up for the holidays. ¬†Along the way, they met Mr. Ladin at the Dreidel Cradle, Ms. Abraham at the World Import Store, Mr. Scrooge at the Bank, and Senora Frida at the Inn. ¬†By the end of the show, the dreary town of Graysville, USA went from looking like this….


to THIS!


Thank goodness for those Graysville kids and their holiday spirit!


And everyone was all smiles after the show…

Chorus Starts Next Week!

A notice that was supposed to go out to all kids on Monday and Tuesday has been a bit delayed-¬†I took a little spill on Tuesday first thing in the morning and have had limited movement capabilities and even had to be out today, terrible timing!! ¬†Kids who have music on Fridays will JUST be getting this notice tomorrow, and chorus is supposed to start on Tuesday, so my apologies to anyone who is getting it super last minute ūüė¶


3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students are invited to join the West School Chorus!  Chorus will rehearse before school on Tuesdays this year from 8:10-8:50, and we will begin rehearsing on October 4th to prepare for a special holiday musical!!

Chorus is optional, but all 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders are encouraged to join if they love to sing.  Kids in chorus get to…
