Holiday Nights Update!

Please arrive (or drop off your students) no later than 5:45 at the fountain in the main entrance of the village.

As far as chaperones go, we have had a lot of parents volunteer. Thank you! With such a large number going, Mr. Floetke  and I decided it would be best for singers to go with their families during the breaks and return at the appropriate time to sing again.If families want to go around together, even better. This is such a great event to get to know new people. If students are just being dropped off, we will have groups for them to go around with as well.

*If you have yet to turn in the signed form for the village, or received your complimentary wristband, you can do so tomorrow when you arrive.*

Here is the forecast for tomorrow night. We will be singing outside and will be outside most of the evening. Please dress accordingly. I find dressing warmer is always better.  It could be sprinkling so you may want to plan for that too.  Gotta love Michigan!
