We are all tasked with bringing in items for the Spring Gala’s Silent Auction! The Gala is April 29th, a month earlier than past years, so we need to get cracking!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We bet you had no idea our parents could unleash the inner rock star! Here’s hoping everyone enjoyed the passionate presentations especially when Georga got up there and sang her heart out with a pack of performers! Great job everyone.

Thanks again to the band Arlene’s World Famous Live.Rock Karaoke. http://www.arleneslivekaraoke.com/ for helping make our benefit a success. Thanks to all of the parents who showed up and to those who supported the event online. We appreciate all of you. There were more RSVP’s than ever with 119 responses. The best yet for a Jubilee. We raised more than last year AND came in slightly under budget! The Treasurer will make a brief report at this week’s General Parent Association Meeting on Wednesday Morning. We found a pink knit pom-pom hat and a pair of reading glasses if anyone is missing these items please reach out to James.
