Week 27:

Happy Sunday, Cucinella Families!

I hope you found some time this weekend to enjoy the spring sunshine.

Last week Cucinella added another first to our list with our in-person Talent Show! This year's Talent Show was once again hosted by Mrs. Jessica DeCicco. A big THANK YOU to Jess for putting on another amazing show! Our fantastic students showcased their talents by singing, dancing, and playing musical instruments. And boy, did they bring it! I would also like to send a shout out to our fifth grade students who helped by emceeing the show and assisting with the curtain and other stage crew tasks. At the end of the show the fifth graders were given an opportunity to share their thoughts on what they would miss at BAC - what a wonderful ending to a terrific show! Thank you to all of our parents and family members who came out to support our students, and to those of you who helped by making programs, checking people in, and helping with the students back stage. The show couldn't go on without the joint efforts of all involved! Congrats to all our participants!
