All-City Children’s Chorus presents “A Cold Winter’s Night”
At 4 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7, at South High School, the All-City Children’s Chorus (ACCC) will present “A Cold Winter’s Night.”
ACCC consists of more than from Laramie County School District 1, St. Mary’s School and Burns and Carpenter elementary schools.
Sean Ambrose, LCSD1’s music coordinator, said the ACCC program supports LCSD1’s mission of gifted and talented instruction in an extracurricular fashion. He added the staff has always been made up of district certified music teachers.
“Our school choirs are very focused on curriculum, literacy and components of the district’s music standards and benchmarks,” Ambrose said. “The children’s chorus provides kids an opportunity to focus specifically on performance outside of the school day.”
“A Cold Winter’s Night” will feature holiday season classics. During the choir’s final song, “Night of Silence,” ACCC alumni will be invited on stage to participate.
The $10 tickets may be purchased from ACCC choir members and individuals may call 771-2275 to leave their ticket requests on the ACCC answering machine. Tickets may also be purchased at www. brownpapertickets.com.

LCSD1 uses new communication platform
Laramie County School District 1 is using a new platform called Remind to communicate with parents/guardians and students at the district, school and classroom level.
This two-way communication platform is also being used for athletics, activities and other extracurricular groups. Users have the option of receiving their messages through a phone app, text messages or via email.
LCSD1 switched to Remind this fall because the former platform, SchoolWay, was no longer available. Users received an email invitation from Remind to claim their account. Claiming/account setup may also be completed on the Remind website, https://www.remind.com/families.
LCSD1 created Remind accounts for all students, parents, and staff. Users’ email and cell phone numbers are automatically populated into this system using information they submitted through Infinite Campus during online registration.
The Remind platform is built for education and the information in the system is secured and private.
For users with multiple Remind accounts, please contact https://www.remind.com/families to have your accounts merged.
For more information visit https://www.remind. com/families or contact the LCSD1 Service Desk at 771-2242, ServiceDesk@Laramie1.org.
