Hello Stanford,

I have a message from Mr. Sacks, please click on the link and sign up for the Jingle Jam!

Hello OPA families and musicians,
The days approacheth! We are not under two weeks away from our annual Jingle Jam celebration! As a reminder, we are doing two shows this year. All choirs performances are on Tues. Dec. 11th; all other groups (including recorders) will perform Wed. Dec. 12th. Tentative downbeat is at 5:30 pm with a call time of 5 pm. All soloists and small groups must play their pieces for me by the end of next week to make sure they are ready for the stage.
Here is a link to a Google Form for the Jingle Jam: Jingle Jam
It is imperative that all students (parents) attending fill the form so I can effectively coordinate the groups, make necessary repairs, acquire materials, etc.
We’re almost there! –Mr. Sacks
Mr. Sacks gave me the sheet music for two of the songs.
The 3 songs the students will be singing are:
Frosty the Snowman (Google the song if you are unfamiliar)
