The 31st Annual Christmas Concert on December 9th was absolutely wonderful! We would like to Thank everyone who helped make this evening of Christmas music so special – from the beautiful music our musicians delivered - to the decorations - to the many volunteers who helped set up and tear down – to the booster parents who helped with the bake sale and gate proceeds. The evening truly was special.
On a personal note from Mrs. Kintner:
THANK YOU band and choir members for the lovely gifts (day at spa package and personalized garden ladder).
THANK YOU alumni who organized the beautiful tribute and ceremony. It was so nice to see so many of you Tuesday evening. Cathy’s alumni facebook page is amazing. Keep in contact and send lots of pictures.
