Celebrating SC - 3rd Grade Program


This year's 3rd grade program will be a little different. With all the changes to our music program over the past few months, the 3rd grade teachers, Mr. Ruppe and administration have chosen to have a 3rd grade concert - rather than a play-based performance.

Performance times will be as follows:

8:15am – 4K, 5K, 1st and 2nd grades

1:15pm – 4th, 5th grades and parents

There will be no 6pm performance since we are only singing a few songs and the program will be short. We will invite friends and family to the 8:15am and 1:15pm performances.

Free Flu Shots

Nurse Supervisor Jill Cooke reminds us that the flu shot is free this year for employees with State Insurance coverage, that the supply of doses is limited, and that the flu is already in our area. Employees planning to get vaccinated should do so as soon as possible for the vaccine to be effective before flu becomes widespread.
