Dear Mr. Burger,
(Name may or may not have been changed to protect identity)
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the third grade Christmas program. I'm not sure if you were behind the fabulous idea of having each grade have their own performance night, but it was genius! I love how we left our house at 6:30pm and were back by 7:30pm.
I really appreciate you recognizing how my sweet Maya, former member of the "Shy Club ", needed an opportunity to step out of the crowd. So thank you for letting her play the xylophone during "Polar Puppy".
Speaking of the song Polar Puppy...I do have one inquiry...what happened to singing the good ol' classics like Frosty the Snowman, Jingle Bells, Rudolph, or Silent Night and Away in a Manger. Is it the religiousness behind some of them?.... It couldn't be, because I noticed how you threw a driedel song in there. I'm not complaining...just wondering. The hip hop Santa song was a little interesting, it definitely mixed things up.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly the program went and how well the kids performed. I will definitely be voting for the next levy, we need you Mr. Burger...we don't want the music to die in our school. I can't wait to see what next years Christmas program has in store...
