Spring Musical - Tuesday, April 22

Join us for the 3rd grade musical Tuesday evening. The show starts at 6:30! Students need to arrive and meet in the classroom no later than 6:10 dressed and ready to perform!


I've listened to some of the rehearsals and all of the third graders have really been working hard. They are going to put on a great show, you won't want to miss it! :)
