  • the lower school kids (K-5th) all have a parent breakfast where the kids perform. The grades also rotate who gets to perform at the grandparent/special person breakfast and annual dinner. Then the whole school, K-12, does a Chanukah musical.(It's a private Jewish school.) The kids all have a blast.

  • Yes. We have a Christmas program in December and a Spring Musical (each class does their's a small private school, only 6 classes pre-K through 3rd grade) in May. My daughter's class is singing Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles. I can't wait :)

  • Yeah, they have school plays. I'm not sure about Christmas Concerts or anything like that, I'm sure they do. The only play she was in was back in February, the first graders had a play called "Hooray For The USA". Luckily DH has just came home for R&R a day or two before her school play, so he was able to see our DD in her very first school play.

  • Our public schools have a winter and a spring concert. No plays (not even at the high school level) but choir-type concerts.

  • At our kids' school, all the kids (K-12th) are required to help put together a play for both Christmas and end of school program. The home schoolers of the church are also invited to join as well (kids go to a private Christian school sponsored by the church). I'm getting pretty excited about the end of school program for this year. I just can't believe they only have 2 weeks left!

  • @hopeandglory53 - your kids only have two weeks left of school? I wish I was that lucky - because of all the snow days this year my kids don't get out until the end of June.

    To answer the question yes the elementary school has plays and concerts, there's one usually within the first few months of school, another around Christmas, and then a Spring production as well. The plays usually only involve Kindergarten through Third grade, mostly since after that the older kids are more interested in putting on concerts rather than plays.
