CHRISTMAS CONCERT FILMING

Dear Parents:  We are excited to be able to offer you a free copy of the 2018 Christmas Concert production, professionally filmed and produced by Colin Bazant. We ask that parents and families help us with the overwhelming number of parents who have asked if we can find a way to avoid blocking

the view of their children’s performances with large cameras, iPads, and ever-bigger videoing devices. With this new option, we ask that no filming and photographing occur during the performances, especially given that the personal information and privacy act prohibits the filming of other people’s children without consent. This solution offers us all the ability to still capture those special moments for posterity while respecting fellow parents and their view of the show. More information will be available detailing video access shortly in this newsletter. Thank you everyone for your consideration!
