Holiday Performances  - December 13 & 14                                                                                                                                                               

Holiday Performances are almost here!  Please read this information carefully!

We have a LARGE school community and a VERY SMALL auditorium.  Therefore, we have to limit the number of tickets given out to each family.  Each FAMILY (not student) will receive 2 tickets for the holiday performances.   The tickets for the shows will go home with the OLDEST child in your family, the Monday before the shows.  

The tickets are divided up by the student's last name.  The breakdown is:

Wednesday, 12/13/17

8:30      Rev - Z

10:30    Ku - Reu

Thursday, 12/14/17

8:30      En - Kr

10:30    A - Em

Parents can exchange tickets among themselves.  The office will NOT be able to facilitate changes, please DO NOT call the office for additional tickets or for changes.  In addition, please, if you only have 1 person coming to the show, DO NOT offer up your second ticket.  We are already over capacity and we are counting on not everyone using both tickets.

Additionally, DVDs of the holiday show will be available.  If you would like to order, click here for the form.  

Please be understanding and patient during this holiday time.

Please visit www.seasonexplorers.com where you will see pictures of the new location, have more information and register.
