1st Grade Winter Caroling

Dear Parents/Guardian,

    Your first grade child will be caroling in the hallways during their music class on Thursday, Dec. 17th and Friday, Dec. 18th at 1:30pm. Classes will perform on the following dates:

  • Thursday, Dec. 17th- Mrs. Farrell and Mrs. Panagiotopoulos
  • Friday, Dec. 18th- Mrs. Burnham and Mrs. Gearin

Parents are welcome to join us and sing along!  We have talked to the students about the wonderful tradition of caroling, and how it brings the community together in song.  They would really love to hear their loved ones singing with them!

If you would like to dismiss your child after the assembly, please send in a note the morning of the sing-along.

Mrs. Rzasa and Mrs. Niu
