FINAL PERFORMANCE!!!


Performance Information

INFORMATION FOR THE PARADE --
For the parade route, see the Buffalo BIlls Day page -- http://www.buffalobilldays.com/parade.php
The parade starts at 10. However, we are 37th out of 70ish, so we are in the middle. Please drop your children off at 9:15 at 10th and Washington (map attached). I think Washington is closed right there at 10th, so I "think" we can drop of kids there... but I don't know for sure.
PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME! Please plan on extra time to get to Golden and find where we are. Google says it takes 32 min to get there. There will be a lot of people there, and it will be hard o find places to park. It also won't be easy to find us with so many involved in the parade. We will be in our staging area by 8, if you want to come early. Please also remind us or let us know if your child isn't participating in the parade so we aren't worried about waiting for them.
We will have teachers there ready to escort children to the float by 9:15, and will stay until 9:40. You are welcome to come back, as well, but the road is closed to cars. Each year is different, so just be ready to do whatever the policemen tell you, of where you can and cannot go with your cars.

Bring --
- Water
- Wear Suncreen
- Yellow MTTS Shirt, Shorts, tennis shoes, and a hat if desired
- Blanket/Old sheet to sit on (not everyone needs one, so if you don't have one you want hay on, don't worry)

PLEASE have your student use the restroom before. There aren't restrooms at the parade and they won't be able to go once they are on the float.


PLEASE take pictures and video for us -- you can send them to us after.

At the end of the parade, we will drive a few blocks to Kafador Commons where you can pick your children up. Map Here -

Leslie and Jen will all have our phones if you have any questions, or get lost. Please do not call Jessica.

TUESDAY PERFORMANCE
July 29th Show! Reunion Rec center from 9:15-11:15 This is a little longer than before, because of pictures, see below.
There is a nice grassy area just east of the Rec center that we will be meeting in. You will see us in our yellow shirts. Please remember to take kiddos to the bathroom BEFORE we get to the Rec center. We can not overrun the Rec center will yellow shirts. We will go over our songs, and finish taking individual pictures. After the show is done, we will go back outside to take class and a big group picture.
We will need 2-3 parent helpers to help with the masses of people, so if anyone is available to stay and help we would love it.
We will be performing all of our songs (except the boys song) for the show Tuesday.
Glitz girls -- your speaking parts were handed out in class today, but just in case, there is another copy attached.

We will be back that evening at 6:15. We will gather the kids backstage, we will have a sign of where you can drop off the kiddos. We will open the doors at 6:30. Please invite all your friends and family. I've included a flier you can attach to emails, post to facebook to help us get the word out.

The performance will be about 30 min. We will be performing the 1st song we learned. We will also have some fun interactive audience participation songs too! We want you to notice how much these kiddos grow in confidence with each performance. The first one will they will be a little hesitant, but by the final show you will see little rockstars!

Things we are looking for:

With so many kiddos, we will have a separate truck just for our Starlets. So this could be a regular size truck.
Helpers - we need helpers to decorate our float. We are creative, but not when it comes to decorating!! We'll get all the supplies, we just need a decorating leader to tell us what to do, and some minions to do it. :)

We are SO proud of the kids!

We had a great rehearsal, and we are so proud of the work the kids did today! They have been practicing on their own, and you can tell! We are learning so fast, we are going to start learning a new song next week! Keep practicing, and working on those words and dance moves.
 
Couple of answers to questions we heard today, so we thought we would pass them on.
Why are some of the words different on the vocals than what is on the wordsheet?
We wanted to make sure the words were age appropriate for all the kids to sing, so we modified them a little. Learn what is on the wordsheet.
What times are the performances? Here is the basic info, you will have more details coming. Tell your friends and families to save the dates. ALL performance are free!
July 12th -- 10:00 at Southlawn Park - Arrive at 9:30
July 26th - Parade in Golden - Parade starts at 10 - I bet around 9 is staging time.
July 29th - Closed performance for the YMCA kids -- sorry no parents --
Aug 1st - FINAL performance will be at PVHS at 7, call time 6:15 ish.
When do we get TShirts?
We will be ordering TShirts this week, and we will pass them out on July 9th. Don't worry, if you aren't there, we will bring them to the show.
We are going to need some help for our Parade July 26th!
Things we are looking for:
A big truck and a long trailer, does anyone have connections??
A few bales of hay. 6-10 ish? We will be sitting them on the truck, so we return them when we are done.
With so many kiddos, we will have a separate truck just for our Starlets. So this could be a regular size truck.
Helpers - we need helpers to decorate our float. We are creative, but not when it comes to decorating!! We'll get all the supplies, we just need a decorating leader to tell us what to do, and some minions to do it. :)
Thank you again for taking this journey with us! We are having a blast!
