First Grade Music Program  

Our First Grade music program is Thursday this week (February 20th) at  6:30pm. 

  • We ask that your child dress nice as they are the stars of this special performance. 
  • Bring your child to the first-grade classrooms and drop them off with their teacher by 6:15pm. (please drop them off and take their coats with you as we will not come back to the classroom at the end of the performance).
  • You are then welcome to head to the Gym to get a seat for the show! We, as teachers, will be with them in the classroom and will bring them down to the performance. 

This is a huge highlight of our year and we can not wait to spend the evening with you and your children! If you have any questions please let your teacher know.
