Week of December 9, 2019
Great job to all of our music students who performed in the Winter Concert last Thursday. We are very proud of you! Our concerts are getting so popular that we need a bigger gym! Thank you again to our outstanding and hardworking music teacher, Julia Federico-Youngs. I also want to acknowledge the efforts of Erinn Washburn, one of our District music teachers, who has been working with our many of our Beginning Band students. Thank you to all of our families and staff for helping to make this event (and the Wednesday dress rehearsal) possible. This truly was a team effort.
