Holiday Lights Around The World – Thursday Night!

Hello Zilker Families,

I wanted to provide you some detailed information concerning Holiday Lights Around the World on Thursday, December 7, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 pm.

We highly encourage attendees to dress in clothing that represent countries all around the world. This is a chance to get creative and share conversations that celebrate cultural diversity. You could wear items of clothing/accessories that are made in other countries, choose the color scheme of a flag, dress as a notable person, etc.. Have fun with it and let’s represent as many countries as we can!

Gobble Gobble Food Truck (Turkey Burgers and Fries) will be on site to make dinner easy, and there will be sweet treats in the Pre-K hallway. Please bring your own water to drink!

There are two non-mandatory performance opportunities that are presented in four identical, thirty minute sets to provide flexibility to roam as you please. I will be leading world folk songs with the help of Zilker students on stage in the cafeteria and my husband, Mr. Hughes, will be leading percussion pieces in the gym. Ms. Wohlfort and I have been teaching the set lists to all K-5 music students so they can have a sense of familiarity. Once again, there are no pre-determined grade levels expected to perform at any particular time. This is a flexible schedule to come and go as you please.

You are welcome to stay in any area as long as you like, however, please limit to one set of each for playing instruments/standing on stage in order to allow as many students an opportunity to play/sing throughout the evening.
