Teasley’s 3rd-5th Grade Talent Show

Participation Permission Slip

 

 

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

Your child has expressed an interest in participating in this year’s 3rd-5th Grade Teasley Talent Show! Below is important information you should know if your child desires to participate.

 

For the 2018-2019 school year, we will be hosting two separate shows.  There will be a K-2 show in the spring.  Please look for information regarding that show at a later date.  Students may only participate in his/her designated grade level’s show.  Please keep this in mind if your child is planning a partner/group act. No exceptions will be made.

 

In order to audition, your child MUST have the permission slip on the reverse side of this sheet completed in its entirety, signed, and returned by August 29th.  Your child must be prepared to show judges a full routine with music (if needed).  Students should bring their music to auditions on a FLASH DRIVE or CDMusic on iPads, iPhones, and iPods will not be accepted.  If you have difficulty saving your child’s music, please

e-mail Mrs. Jean or Ms. Nichols.  We will NOT be providing acts or music for students. Music does not need to be submitted for prior approval, but should be child and school-appropriate.  Inappropriate acts will not be allowed. Please keep in mind there is a strict time limit of 2 minutes per act.  Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Talent Show, students will ONLY be allowed to participate if they are prepared at ALL times (including auditions, practices, and the dress rehearsal), have chosen an appropriate act, and are on their best behavior throughout the school day. Talent show organizers will cut any student acts that are unprepared at anytime or do not follow Teasley’s behavior expectations (including classroom, lunchroom, specials, etc.).

 

This year there will only be two (2) practices and one (1) dress rehearsal before the actual Talent Show.  Please make sure that outside of school-designated rehearsals, that your child prepares for his/her act.  Thank you for helping in working with us in making Teasley’s students more responsible!

 

3rd-5th grade students will audition after school on Wednesday, September 5th.  If your child is chosen to participate in the Talent Show, you will receive an email with results on Friday, September 7th.  Audition times and dismissal information will be sent home with students chosen to participate in the Talent Show. Please complete ALL of the information on the reverse side and return to Mrs. Jean or Ms. Nichols no later than Wednesday, August 29th at 2:45 pm.  Late permission slips will NOT be accepted for ANY reason.

 

 

Thank you!
