Fine Arts Update: Frozen Jr. Recap

February's production of Frozen was heartwarming and a lot of fun. After three months of preparation, our 1-4th graders took the stage to share their hard work and talents. The kids really "let it go" and closed out another great year of after-school drama productions. We want to give a Shout-Out to Elizabeth Meringer for the countless hours which she has dedicated to developing the Pacelli Fine Arts program! We are so grateful for her passion, creativity, and dedication!

June Fest Needs a Few Good Men!

We are in need of a handful of Pacelli Dads to assist with set up and take down for the festival. The set-up portion would happen the Thursday night before the festival (June 1) and the Sunday after the festival (June 4). This involves some clean up, delivery of booth items, and odds and ends. If you can lend a hand, please contact Alisa Fisher or Rachel Worley Thank you! Many hands make light the work!
