The final rehearsal for this year’s talent show is this coming Wednesday, 5/28 at 4:30pm. Thanks to our parent volunteers for keeping this show going!

We’d love to see as many people in our audience as possible to support our brave and talented students during their one and only performance this Friday at 5pm in the gym.

Whether or not your student is performing, a good audience makes for a great show!
