A musical Production

Wednesday April 13, 2016


***Students should wear an oversized white button-up shirt (or white Lab coat!)

Please send these to school the week after Spring Break so we can practice.***

Christmas came in April to the music room. Thanks to all who supported our efforts for our first madrigal dinner in December. Our profits from that event allowed us to get some nice high quality audio equipment. After much research I finally narrowed down the purchase and they arrived today. Two nice new choral mics, two wireless over the ear mics, one wireless handheld, several new cables and a new stand!! These will be used for our spring musical and the kids and I are both excited to get working with them!! –Mrs. Casimir

Tentative 2016-2017 School Calendar

2016-2017 School Calendar

*While it has been approved, pay attention to the disclaimer at the top of the attached calendar. It is anticipated there will be a bill regarding the calendar filed during the upcoming General Assembly which would impact next year’s calendar if it were to pass. If a law does pass that would impact our approved 2016-2017 calendar, the calendar committee would reconvene to draft another recommendation to the Board based on whatever the new calendar requirements would be.
