Hi Passion Play Parents,
Well March finally has arrived, and boy was I panicked at mass yesterday when they sang "40 Days and 40 Nights"....seriously!...we don't even have that much time.
Just a few reminders:
We will have practice tomorrow from 3:15 to 6:00 in the auditorium with the stage in place. Thank you to Ellen Falkenstein and Nancy Patrick for the food and drinks tomorrow (Pasta).
We just realized that the 8th graders are doing Stations at 2:30 tomorrow, so we will be meeting at noon to take sets and costumes out of the closet upstairs in the auditorium. We will work till 2:30 so those who want to attend stations can do so. Feel free to stop in and help when you can.
Please encourage the kids to learn their lines as we will be prompting only...no scripts. If your child is truly having an issue with memorization, please let us know and we can help out by running lines at lunch or other times. We do not want anyone having anxiety or embarrassment for not knowing their lines.
Snacks on Fridays:
Now that we have fewer Friday night school conflicts, we will be having full practices this month till 6:00pm. If you have signed up for a snack this month, please indicate the snack on the sign up genius. The kids really look forward to the food....maybe more than the practice, but if it's not something they like to eat, they need to pack something else.
They really start to get hungry after 5:00 if not fed.
Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far. We still have some spots left so check the sign up genius.
We want to clarify some dates for the week of the show: practice will be Monday (4/3), Tuesday (4/4) and Wednesday(4/5) from 3:15 to 6:00pm, and Thursday, April 6th from 6:00 till whenever we finish (no snack needed at that practice).
Also, a reminder that March 31st, we have no school so practice will be 10am to noon. It is important to figure out carpools or rides for all the kids to be there, as that is a very important practice.
All the participants in the play will be getting a Passion Play t-shirt. This year, we are offering the parents an opportunity to order a shirt. If you are interested in a t-shirt, email Samantha (email@example.com) with your name and shirt size. This order is for PARENTS ONLY....we already have the kids' shirt sizes. Parent shirts are available in Adult Small - 2XL and the cost is $12. Please send in a check, made out to St. Ignatius, to Samantha via Nora in 5th grade or drop off at pick up on Friday.
All orders are due no later than this Monday, March 6th.
Samantha & Janet
