 Dear Families,

We are preparing diligently for our Spring Arts Night on the evening of Wednesday, May 9, 2018. We are very excited to show you our performances and art works for this delightful evening! The program will include performances from Henderson Gold Award Winning Junior band, Senior band and Choir.

In order to be prepared for that evening, it is very important that your daughter/son arrives before the scheduled performance. Please note that our concert will begin at 7:00 p.m.  All students participating in this event MUST arrive at the school by 6:45 p.m.

It would be appreciated if you could stay for the entire event in order to see all the performances.  Students will be waiting in their classrooms to meet you after the show.

There is a cookie sale during this event. The cookies are $2.00 and all the proceeds will go towards enhancing our music program.

Thank you for your continuous support and we look forward to a very exciting evening!
