Update on how things are going…

Tickets are on sale in the choir room ($3)

Dinner Donations are coming in! 🙂 thanx

Songs are singable but not memorized completely.

Costumes are pulled for all specials! (We have 177 students participating in an extra special way)

Stage will be set next week, video productions will be setting up next week, and we are rehearsig with our accompanist!

We’re pressing on to our goal. We want all of you feeling the “Christmas Spirit” when you leave our shows!


Would you believe that the Christmas Shows are 2 weeks from today? Yes you read that right. You wouldn’t believe how hard it is to put a Christmas show on 3 weeks after Swingfry. But we do it, and it will be SPECTACULAR. (said with a tremble)

I just finished writing the Parent letter that has all of the details you will need to maneuver through Concert Week. Basically Tuesday, December 6 will be our Tech day for “specials” only. Kids that have solos, dance, or sing in Ensembles should be at this rehearsal.

Thursday, December 8 will be our full choir Dress Rehearsal. Students do not need to dress in their black and whites but will be changing in and out of costumes.

Saturday, December 10 will be the big Shindig! Tickets are on sale for $3. Just send in the money with your child and have him/her purchase tickets for the 4:30 or 7 p.m. show.

More details will be found at this link –> https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iwYumD00BoyZrG-eKbIVL2NH3lPKRsuM_WfHL_7HhUQ/edit?usp=share_link

We hate to ask but we are in great need for volunteers to help run the show. We use over 60 people per show. Right now we have half of that. Greatest needs are Chaperones and Dinner Crew. Read page 2 of the link I’ve shared and you will get a better view of what we are facing.

Finally, I’d like to remind you that we do 2 shows because our audiences are so big. In between meals we like to serve dinner to our 260+ kids. Subway helps us out with that but we need to collect donations so that each child is fed. If you would like to donate money for dinner you can just send cash or a check (made out to NMS) and we will take care of arranging the meal. We appreciate your generosity in advance! 🙂

Pictures anyone?

Thank you to these ladies who took quality fantastic photos!

Thank you to all of our parents who helped make this a wonderful day and night. As directors we are all very grateful for the kind of parents we have in Middlebury Community Schools!! Sincerely, Mrs. Armingon and Mr. Norwood

O.K you’ve got me!

I am now down on my knees begging for 2 7th grade chaperones. We only have one brave soul who has volunteered! Honestly she can’t do it herself. Basically you will meet kids in the NHS Bandroom at 3:40 ad stay until 4:15. How simple is that? You will just take attendance and watch over students until Mr. N and Mrs. A can get there to take over. You will collect ties after their performance. Easy Peasy!! Please (with a cherry on top?) add your name on the signup genius tab. It would be so easy for a couple to step in and handle this! You can even be on stage when the kids perform!

Yep it’s me again!

We need balcony chaperones for an hour shift. You will be there anyway so please lend a hand. Signup on the Signup Genius tab on this page. 3-4 pm is covered. The other shifts are in need of help.

We also need 1 more 7th grade chaperone for during the concert. You will meet kids in the NHS Bandroom and then take attendance and watch over students until Mr. N and Mrs. A can get there to take over. You will collect ties after their performance. Easy Peasy!! Please add your name on the signup genius tab. Gracias!
