Need help after Gr. 1- 4 Family Concert

All Gr. 1-4 families are invited to an evening of music to celebrate our school’s Circle of Courage on Thursday @ 6:30pm. Students are asked to go to their own communities at 6:15pm and due to fire regulations, we can only have two people per family in the audience.

We will need many help to move the instruments and chairs back to where they belong to. For parents who are able to stay and help after Thursday night’s concert, here is a list of which instruments and pieces of equipment go where after the show. We will try to have a big poster in the big gym indicating all this info as a reminder.

Thanks for your help!!
