Brackendale choir meets every Tuesday at noon in the music room. These dedicated music-loving students are a very important part of our assemblies and Christmas concerts. Ms. Murakami expects choir members who wish to sing at the Christmas concert, to come to every practice. Remember… sometimes giving up a little at the beginning, pays off in the end! Rehearsals are only 15-20 minutes so you still have lots of time to go play outside afterwards!

EVENTS ON GOING:
Kids-Only Christmas Shop
On Wednesday, December 14, 2016the 5th Annual Kids- Only Christmas Shop will be open for business. Kids will shop with their classmates and look for the ‘perfect’ gifts for their family members. Gifts will be wrapped and sent home with the students.
As we gear up for the festive season, this is a great time to donate some of your gently used items that you no longer need to the Kids-Only Christmas Shop. We are looking for all sorts of cool/unique items for moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandmas, grandpas etc. Books, movies, stuffed animals, jewelry, mugs, frames, toys, home décor….the options are endless.
Clean and gently used items can be dropped off from now until Friday, December 9, in the foyer. Donations of Christmas wrap, ribbon and gift boxes are also requested.
To volunteer for this great event please email firstname.lastname@example.org or sign-up on the BRE PAC message board in the school lobby. This event needs quite a few volunteers to run smoothly so please sign up soon! Thank you!
