Like last year, both shows will be the same performance. KG to grade 3 parents are to attend the 11:00 a.m. show, in which KG to grade 3 students will receive a present from Santa after the concert. Grade 4 to 8 parents are to attend the 2:00 p.m. show. Parents must attend the time slot assigned to them, in order to accommodate everyone in the gymnasium.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. We can’t wait to see everyone!
