Winter Concert Decoration and Sign-Up
If you have Christmas decorations light-up, outdoor, etc that could adorn our stage that you are not using this year or can do without for two days; please bring them in to school. We'd love to tchotchke up the place on Monday evening!
Specialists, it is time to sign-up for the winter concert assignments. Here is a shared document with a couple slots available for decorating the night before! https://docs.google.com/a/cusd200.org/document/d/1Xat5m5eD5IMc68jQVpzSEDeksGIVZmtYErm6aaYW21I/edit?usp=sharing
