Annual Holiday Sing-along!
We will have our annual sing-along on December 23rd. Please review this schedule and let me know if anything should be altered. It would be great if HR buddies could meet up and sit together - so if you could work out getting the students into one room and then be called down, that would be great. Please report to the gym when the older grade level of the buddy classes is called.

*We are looking for staff to showcase their talents during our sing-along! If you have a song you’d like to sing, a dance you’d like to showcase, or a comedy act we can laugh at, please email Karrin and me with your ideas and we’ll add you to the agenda! Feel free to buddy up with a friend for your performance – the more, the merrier!
