NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

The Starstruck program began today, and students are excited to learn this year's dance routines. Starstruck is a program where classes learn basic dance choreography as part of our PE instruction. Students rehearse until the Thanksgiving break, and the week we return Starstruck culminates with evening performances. Please look for more information to be included in our newsletter next week regarding performance dates, performance attire, procedures, etc.
