    • TueDec13 MQ - Grade One Holiday Concert

      November, 2016

      Dear Grade One families,

      We are excited to announce a Grade 1 Holiday Concert to be held on Tuesday, December 13th. In order to ensure that there is room for everyone, we are asking the families of students in Mrs. Alemian and Mrs. Taylor’s classes to attend the 10:00 AM performance and the families of students in Mrs. Richards, Mrs. Riley’s and Mrs. Gardner’s classes to attend the 1:45 PM show. All grade 1 students will perform in both concerts. Therefore, if you are unable to attend at the assigned time, please feel free to come to the alternate program.

      The students have been working hard to learn the songs and we all look forward to sharing some holiday spirit with you on December 13th.

      Wishing you all a happy
