jukeboxOur Spring Musical called Jukebox Time Machine will be taking place on Thursday, May 10th 2018! There will be two classes performing for each decade – your job will be to try to dress your student in the fashions of that decade!! I’m trying to get this out to you early so you have time to plan. If there is any reason that you are unable to find a costume, need assistance, or even have any questions… please don’t hesitate to contact me (kristiwalkey@gmail.com) or pop into the school to see me!

Please see the chart below to see which decade has been assigned to your child’s class. A quick google of “50’s costumes” or “90’s fashion” etc. will help you get an idea of what to look out for! Dig into those costume boxes, ask a neighbour or friend… or look in your old wardrobe? Haha!

The 2000’s and 2010’s have a slightly different costume…please see below.

1950’s – Grade K/1- McMillian/Lewis- 50’s theme Costume
1960’s – Kindergarten -Davidson/McEachern – 60’s theme Costume
