Sixth Grade Winter Performance RE-SCHEDULED

We have been given the official word that the 6th grade winter performance will now be TOMORROW at 2:50PM in the DMS theatre. This performance, like our concerts, is open to the public (please sign into the front office first). We encourage you to attend–the students have worked hard and deserve a great audience, “heedless of the wind and weather!” 🙂
