Holiday Musical Presentation

Next Tuesday the 20th of December is the fast approaching date for our annual Holiday Musical Presentation!   This year the students will be performing in a larger hall, as we have rented the First Congregational Church Hall at 282 Rock Street.  There will be only one show, which will start at 9:00 AM for all grades.

We are asking families to help keep our cost down by dropping off their children at the church between 8:00 - 8:15 AM., if parents need the morning daycare, it will still be provided at the school and we will transport your child to the church at 8:00 AM,  Also we will need family members to drop off their children back to Antioch after the show!  If your child doesn't have anyone at the show, we will provide transportation back to school.

We are also asking for cookies and juice box donations for all our students and families to enjoy after the show.  The sign-up sheet is on the easel in the Foyer.  Thanks!
