Spring Concert Dress Info for tonight, 5/19…

3rd-5th Grade Students should arrive by 5:50pm and sit with their class on stage in the Sanctuary.  They should wear: dressy attire (girls in dresses or skirts with a nice blouse; boys in slacks and a collared shirt/polo).  Please do not wear spaghetti straps; sleeveless is fine, just remember shoulders should be covered.  Also, do not wear tennis shoes or shorts unless that is all you have.  Make sure your attire is appropriate and longer than fingertips in length.  Be conservative!

6th-8th Grade Band Students should arrive by 5:40pm and meet in the choir room to warm-up and tune your instrument.  Follow the guidelines in the previous paragraph for dress.  Wear your black, white and grey music competition attire.  Boys, if wearing a tie, it can have color in it.

There will be a brief meeting for current 5th grade parents after the Spring Concert.  All of these students are eligible for beginning band next year in the 6th grade.  Mr. Ballard and I would like to meet with parents and students to go over Beginning Band.

Re: 5th/6th grade English/History Teaching Position… Please contact Mr. Ballard if you know of a certified teacher to fill this open position.  The candidate must be a Christian, be certified, and have a love for teaching English and History.  The candidate would teach 5th grade English, History, and Bible from 8-11:30, and then teach 6th grade English and History from 12-3 each day of the week.  Thank you for praying and partnering with us as we seek God’s candidate for this teaching position at CCA.
