Queneesh Winter Concert Series
We are excited about our Winter Concert Series planned for the last week of school in December. Our format has changed significantly from the last few years and I want you to be aware of those changes and what it may mean to your family plans. Given the size of our school we have separated the primary and intermediate concerts.
Each kindergarten to grade 3 student will have an opportunity to perform in one concert during the school day, held at Crown Isle Resort on Monday, Dec. 17th. At Crown Isle, the concert will take place in the resort’s grand entrance with the children performing three winter songs on and around the arching stairs, amongst the gingerbread displays. We are encouraging families to try to free up some time to join us as part of our audience in this festive setting.
There are three time slots depending on the class your child belongs to.
Neighbourhood classes: David, Bowley, Nowell and Rehnby
from 9:15am until 10:15am (9:30 performance)

Our intermediate concert will be a celebration of musical learning. Students in grade 4 to 7 will be performing on the marimbas. The have been preparing 6 pieces of music from Africa, South America and North America that will take approximately 40 minutes. The students will perform for guests and our primary children in the afternoon.
Our evening concert is open to all families and guests of intermediate students. As part of our evening celebration we will be providing a lasagna dinner. The students are making the desserts and are very excited to share them with you. Watch for an emailed invitation with an RSVP so we can make the appropriate preparations and accommodate for dietary needs as well as look for volunteers to help. School Doors open at 5:15 and gym doors at 6:15.
