Spooky Autumn Night was a Great night!

Congratulations to our 4th grade students for doing a great job last Thursday performing their concert! We are viewing the concert video this week in Music class, reflecting on how we did as individuals, as a class, and as a whole group. Below are a few pictures from the evening. Special thanks to Dawn Dalton for her help arranging our volunteers, and to all of our volunteers for making my job really easy that night!
