Our Second Grade Holiday Concert is tomorrow at 2:30 in the main cafeteria. Our class will be singing first with Mrs. Ballnik and Mrs. Sareini’s classes. Our class will be standing on the right side of the stage. 

Students can dress up for this concert. Girls may want to wear pants under their dress for recess. 

If your child wears snow boots to school, please have them bring shoes in a bag so they can take their boots off.

Next Wednesday is a Late Start day. School will begin at 9:40.
