“Finger snappin, hand clappin, and toe tappin” concert will be presented on Tuesday Feb. 26, in the gym at the Kimball Elementary School.
The concert will be given at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The grades 4, 5 and 6 students will be in this concert, along with the elementary band.
Come ready to have some fun!
I’m sure you’ll feel like singing along, tapping your toes, snapping your fingers, and especially clapping your hands after the exciting numbers the students will be singing. Also included are dances, instruments, a rap, and other songs to liven up this cold, snowy winter.
The band will begin the program followed by the grades 4 through 6. The finale will include a number by all the students. Hope to see you there for an exciting evening.
The band is under the direction of Keith Haake, and grades 4-6 under the direction of Arlene Sands.
