Aladdin Update

We will be having a dress rehearsal on Friday May 5 so we can try dancing and singing in our costumes.  The next dress rehearsal will be Tuesday May 9.   This will be a performance for the primary grades as well as trying to work with the microphones and all the sets.  Please make sure your child has all their costume pieces at the school for both days. 

Make sure you buy your tickets for the Musical.  The students have worked very hard for the big day.  Just one more week. 

Monday 1 May 2017

Next week the intermediate grades will be performing Aladdin. We are looking for donations of makeup - foundation, lipsticks, blush, liners (lip and eye) - anything you have at home that you are willing to part with.
