IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

What an amazing job the students did in their performance of Broadway Beat. We are so proud of their hard work and dedication. We also want to take a moment to thank you all for your support throughout our preparations for the 2nd grade musical! It was a smashing success and the children were prepared because of your support and encouragement at home.

The poetry theme this week will be Sports themed. The minimum line requirement is 12 lines, and a copy of the poem is due on Tuesday, March 26th.
