The Spring Musical Extravaganza will take place on Sunday, May 3, at 6:30 p.m. All students, preschool through 8th grade will participate in this school event. This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to showcase their talents to which God has blessed them. Students can dance, sing, play and instrument or recite a rhyme or tongue twister. All dances, songs and routines are subject to the approval of the teachers. When helping your child choose an item for the Spring Musical Extravaganza, please ask yourself if it is God pleasing. Practices will begin towards the end of April. Please keep in mind, if your child is dancing, singing or playing an instrument, he/she will need the song or routine memorized and the instrument at school for the practices.
Please submit dances, songs and routines to your child’s teacher by April 10. We encourage you to be creative and plan now. Please do not wait until the last minute. This allows you more than a month to plan ☺
