2nd Grade Program

We would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped make our backdrop look so wonderful for Thursday's program!


We would also like to thank all of the families who helped their child memorize their lines for the program.


The students worked so very hard on their Veteran's Day Program!


The second grade team would also like to thank Ms. Arbolino for all of her hard work and dedication writing, planning, prepping, and executing the program! It would not have been as successful if not for her wonderful talents as director! Thank you Ms. Arbolino!!!


There were some programs left over from Thursday, if you did not get one and would like one please let your child's teacher know. There are only about 45 left so first come, first served!
