Racine Festival Finale Wanted

Hey it is that time of year again when I start advocating for a work from this community to be used by my school district for our Area Choir Festivals.  
We are not looking for a new commission, rather a piece you already have.   We had debated ending this program but it is getting at least one more year. The piece will be formed by 3 high schools, 5 middle schools and as many as 10 elementary schools receiving 4-5 performances.  
 
The work must stand alone as a performable piece for each of the 3 school levels as well as function as a combined number.  
Must be for SATB (but functional as unison and hopefully SAB) and piano.  
Voice range should be moderate keeping in mind elementary sopranos.  
 
Last year we commissioned Greg Bartholomew.  Most of you have seen this piece but here is one of the performances as a guide:
 
Suggest here in the forum so others can see what you have available or message me.  We need to choose before Dec. 15, 2013.

Jack, please consider my "Let the Children Play" in the SAB version. You have reviewed it in th epast. Let me know if you need a .pdf. Flutes are optional.
HS and Middle can sing all the parts, elementary need to sing only S or SA if they can learn it.
 
Let me know what you think.
 
Best,
 
David Avshalomov
