Dear Fourth Grade Families:


On Thursday, December 1st you are cordially invited to attend your child’s final grade level program at DPES.  Warm-up will begin in the gym at 6:15 p.m., with the performance starting promptly at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria.  The musical titled "Dear Santa” is a collection of songs centered on the Christmas wishes of one family.  Performers will need to wear holiday shirts or holiday colors (i.e. red and green) with long pants or jeans (holiday dresses and skirts are allowed).  If possible, also have your child bring one necktie (any style) to use as a prop.


One final request, please encourage your child to fully participate in this event.  We want them to enjoy and remember their last time to perform with their DPES friends.  If they know you are looking forward to the show we think it will encourage them to do their very best.  Thank you for your time and support. See you December 1st at 6:15 p.m.
