Winter Sing 2015 is Thursday, December 17!
Get ready for a lot of spirited music -- and some movin' and groovin' -- as we gather in the HW auditorium Thursday for the annual Winter Sing. For those who are new, this is the event of the winter season and something the kids work really hard on. It's a great opportunity to see all of the faces and personalities that make up our amazing school.
This year's theme, "Humans of Hubbard Woods," is based on the popular blog, "Humans of New York," and ties into our ongoing 100-year celebration! To bring the theme to life and identify the songs, Mr. Wendt, and his trusty assistant Ms. Goldenberg, have been interviewing the students and really getting to the heart of the common stories found in our school community. "Who the students are is really shown in what they sing and do during this show," says Mr. Wendt.
Here are a few highlights to look for when you attend:
- Mrs. Mac worked with the students on self portraits, which will decorate the room and help bring the theme to life (the portraits will have QR codes you can scan with your phone in order to link to your child's interview recording)
- Each grade has a theme, which came from the trends found in the interviews.
- Students in the strings program will open up the show with two pieces, followed by performances by first grade, kindergarten, second grade, third grade and fourth grade.
Unless otherwise directed by your child's teacher, parents should report to their child's classroom to take them to the auditorium and sit together. Each class is called up to perform and then will return to sit with their families. Each show should last one hour. Please take note of the designated show times according to last names:
9 AM: Families with last names M-Z
1:30 PM: Families with last names A-L
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
